S&L at The Correra Contemporary Art Gallery, Naples, Italy
Girls, the show at Naples went off really well. There is something to be said for validation from fellow human beings on ones work. As requested – pics galore were taken for the 3For blog.
The red walls and orange drapes of the gallery seems like the perfect backdrop for my work. I basically used 2 mobile constructions made of metal wire and clips and used the window inset to frame them. additionally I used nylon wires and standard metal binder clips to ‘hang’ sketches against the wall.
Over all I really liked the way it all worked out. The beautiful Naples light filtered in through the orange translucent drapes onto my work while the gentle wind kept it constantly rotating and animated. The static sketches against the red wall looked rather dramatic and very ‘designed’ too.
Though the gallery did not have a projector, they did give me a computer on which I had my video art on the Snakes and Lotuses series playing.
The good news is that this gallery and one other (the curator happened to pop into this show) are interested to have more shows of my work…will have to see if all that comes through, but it certainly felt great to know that they were interested.
Now Berlin beckons. I am living with some friends in the East. Its amazing…really choc-a-bloc full of creative people. Have set up a collaboration with an underground poetry movement here called Brotnkunst V. It literally translates to BreadArt. The idea is that each poet has a colour specific to them. They then go about Berlin pasting up sheets of their poems on paper that is of their signature colour. So tomorrow we will go about posting my poems all over. I am excited!! O and of course my chosen colour is pink 😀 I will also post up german work in Blore when I get back. Now girls, I think a 3For movement should happen right here in Berlin!! What say?
