Opening Saturday January 25, 2014, 5-9 pm
Introducing nine artists; Bobby Dowler, Sophie Giraux, Oliver Griffin, Ralph Hunter-Menzies, Robert Janitz, Shaun McDowell, Nicolas Roggy, Sofia Stevi, John Tremblay, living and working in London, Athens, New York, Paris.
Here, works by artists who have entered my life during recent travels are introduced to works by old friends. Some of them already know each other, some do not. I have met everyone involved, and have invited them. I am excited by these artists. My line of interest is rooted in their individually varied approaches to making, and the consequent affinity I feel with their works. It is their coming together for the first time that intrigues me most.
Like a dinner party.
From some I have selected specific works - from others I have left it for them to decide. Each work has a distinct manner and makes no promise to be courteous to its neighbour. The works included; books, paintings, sculptures, projection - inhabit the space, interchanged with the apartment's usual furnishings. A show of slides, a photo album, the travel of time, a postcard and the experience, a souvenir collected, that mysterious bottle.
I'll be in the kitchen.
