Page 1 | 2 | 3 | Biography


For this exhibition at Kingsgate Gallery the artist has brought together a collection of works which expand on a contrived relationship between a photographic document and a torn seat cover. They are a record of a precise moment an event occurred and both allude to their own historical connotations and relative sequence of events. The photograph, taken by Alfred Stiegltiz in 1914, documents the first exhibition of African art in his New York gallery. This was described as the first time African objects were framed as art and not ethnographic specimens. After the opening of the exhibition Edward Steichen re-organized the exhibition adding paper backings to animate the space and objects, this new spatial arrangement was to add a modernist dynamic to the overall image. The objects in this exhibition have formed their connections over the period of their collection and transformation. The spatial arrangements follow idiosyncratic systems of display to question codes and conventions of exhibition production; they are expressions of and reactions to collective experience and private reflection.
