So, going completely out of my current interests, but something came up, that I would really like to research.
I was invited to co-curate an exhibition “Find another Bath” at 44AD (intermezzo: if you still haven’t signed the petition, please go to my home page, look at the bottom of it, and do so, thank you!) with an artist Anna Kot. Of course I said yes, I want to do it, I want to gain experience and it would also definitely be a good reference for the future.
The exhibition was actually a book launch of “a short run book that is drawing together a wide range of local artists and poets who have responded to various aspects, locations and associations of Bath that are often overlooked or forgotten. Works include painting, prints, sculpture as well as video, performance, poetry and a specially composed piece of music.”
Needless to say, there were a lot of works we needed to exhibit. And the gallery is actually really tiny. I asked myself, as a curator, whose work has always been sort of minimal, with the less-is-more aspect, how the hell will I be able to do this?? Am I up for the challenge? A definite yes…..
And from that comes my sudden interest for the so-called “cluttered walls” or “closely-hung works of art”. Sometimes it actually works, but how is that even possible?
