Drawing Space is an interesting initiative by Brighton artist Carolyn Bew during the Artist Open House. It is a collaborative event over three weekends. Visitors are invited to take part in a collective drawing incorporating sound and video, which will transform this empty space into an interactive environment. Each evening a video will be made of the artworks, before the walls are repainted for the following day.
Hello Everybody, so a new exciting season of Armchair Critics has begun.
Big news is that AC is doubling up. There will be two exhibitions instead of only one.
The first one is on the 21st of April and will be at the usual time around 7:00 p.m.
The second, on the 5th of May, will be held in the early afternoon for those who don’t like nocturnal outings.
The questions haven’t been set yet, but I am reading up and very eager to produce good stuff. I am currently drawn to the idea of polyphony in literature and the incredible way in which singular voice, once put together, can create a new sound, where the whole is different from each individual part… Or it many be about the empty space. Have you got any suggestions? Let me know!
As most of you know the show is The Forty Part Motet by Janet Cardiff and engages with Thomas Tallis’ Spem in Alium.
I thought I’d upload some stuff I have done in the past. This is a show I was part of last year.
It’s called It’s All About Paradise 2. Here is a brief description of my work taken from the website.
Lorenza Ippolito interviews found objects, placing them in their traditional context and questioning their functions. Her interest lies in fetishism, nostalgia and capitalism, exploring the boundaries between found objects and the ‘objective’ subject, subverting their established meaning and detachment. By animating objects that have lost their use or whose design has been replaced by more sophisticated devices, Ippolito questions the human relation with the past as an object, the waste, and the nostalgia that drives capitalism towards fetishism.
