“I was also interested in the direct address and this space at VITRINE has this quality. As we previously talked about when we were conceiving the exhibition – VITRINE is in a space that has been part of the huge waves of gentrification in London, next door to private housing, a cinema and supermarket. I like how the work is read alongside these things, with the same vernacular language but also slightly off. For me with the work I make as with the GCI animation I work there is an element of hijacking of this visual language with the work. I like that the work could be an advert in the supermarket or a movie poster.”

NEWS Clare Kenny in Corridor 8

18 July 2017  |  Latest News

Richard Hughes reviews Clare Kenny’s Industrial Romantic at Touchstones Rochdale for Corridor 8.

“Kenny encourages the viewer to question the truth of reality and speediness of time, conjuring personal memories of different ages within our lives and how they affect who we are in the present. Industrial Romantic in some places relates to the many monotonous aspects of Northern lives, with Kenny quite humbly describing the populace with light-hearted sincerity and sensitivity, paying homage to the sometimes forgotten essences of existence.” Read more here.

PRESS Sarah Burger interview in TRACTION Magazine

“The VITRINE space is a demanding one, one that doesn’t please a possible white-cube desire of anonymous interior walls. The space itself is an entity with which I somehow worked – although from a distance. Beside its’ unwieldy dimensions, which intrigue me, it was also the fact that it is embedded in a public situation that made me think around the tension between its’ limited exhibition area and its’ actual site-taking presence. The shows at VITRINE happen outside. It’s not given where the exhibition starts, you can see it from far away when you walk towards the square. People who work or live in the buildings around see it when they look out of their window. When there is the market on the square, the VITRINE becomes the background scenery of a daily life situation. ” Read more from Sarah Burger in Traction Magazine here.
