Dear Friends I’m delighted to invite you to my first Open Studio event.
For 3 days ( Friday 30th of June, Saturday 1st of July and Sunday 2nd of July) I welcome you to visit my studio where I will install a selection of artwork spanning 18 years. With the supervision of curator Clara Rocha we have selected more then 35 pieces which are part of my artist proof collection.
A lot of the selected work have been shown abroad but never in London.
We chosen UNFORSEEN as the title for the event. It highlight the mystical interdependency between the live event and its documentation. All the work exhibited is born as an attempt to overcome the failure of documentation and the distance that photography is ontologically creating. UNFORSEEN would like to celebrate that sense of ‘productive failure’.
UNFORSEEN is matured out of a desire to generate further visibility and discussion on my art practice and the urgency to find alternative ways to sustain more development. The work exhibited will be available for sale and the money collected will be use to fund new projects.
Please help me to prove that there are other ways to survive as an artist in London without the support of a commercial gallery or a second job.
If you don’t think so, please come along anyway and let’s discuss it all.
