Mostyn Open 19 exhibition

We are delighted to have one of our collaborative works ‘Farmer Cam in Barn 03:12 – 05:05’ selected for the Mostyn Open 19 at Mostyn Gallery in Llandudno, Wales (www.mostyn.org).  The exhibition is on from 14th March – 5th July 2015.

I was pleased to be able to visit this gallery recently and really enjoyed the architecture of the building and its incredible spaces – so we’re really looking forward to seeing all of the work in the show.

While I was there, I was lucky enough to see the work of Irma Blank and Amalia Pica, which was being shown as the second of the ‘Conversations Series’ exhibitions, where two solo shows are brought together in conversation.  I found this really fascinating, as these artists weren’t working in an agreed collaboration, as Sara and I do, however their work has parallel themes that formed a dialogue around social interaction, linguistics and ritual, which fitted together really well.  Irma Blank’s ‘Breath Paintings’ appear to be vibrating in the space, with each drawn line corresponding to a single breath.

Amalia Pica’s ‘Switchboard’ installation, made up of tin cans embedded into walls with string attached to make ‘tin can phones’, had a wonderful sense of play to it, whilst being very aesthetically pleasing with the crossing of the strings making fantastic line drawings in space.

It reminded me of my own childhood attempts to rig up baked bean can telephones and sadly finding that the usual result was only hearing my breathing, whilst I struggled to listen for my friend’s voice in my ear!  Seeing Irma Blank’s paintings through the doorway of this installation, seemed very apt.
