Natasha Rees has written an article for Wall Street International previewing Clare Kenny’s solo show at VITRINE. For the piece, Rees exclusively interviews Kenny on her new work for ‘Yesterday’s labour is the Future’s folly’ opening at VITRINE Bermondsey Street on 15 October. Rees describes Kenny’s practise as one that “actively plays with our sense of understanding things in the world both in and outside of artistic reality”. Read more here.
The Press and Journal have published an editorial piece on John Walter’s projects for PLAYpark alongside SMART Consultants in Aberdeen. ‘The Hallucinatory Zoo 18-hole crazy golf by Colin Priest and John Walter will cast people adrift on to a bewildering new golfing landscape filled with tropical birds, safari beasts and oceanic schools. Meanwhile, the oversized Hattiesburg Chess board by John Walter will be in good company alongside the spectacular carnival games’. Read the whole piece here.
‘The River’ have featured Vitrine’s program in their Autumn 2013 issue. The article falls as Vitrine announces the launch of its new ground floor premises to the public – ‘Clare Kenny will open the new gallery with a solo show during London’s Frieze week, bringing international collectors into the very centre of Bermondsey’. Visit the magazine’s website to find local stockists.
Edwin Burdis will perform ‘The Fruit Machine (A Painting and an Opera)’. The piece is centred around an allegorical painting that depicts how we on Earth use and abuse fruits and resources to fulfil our own desire. The installation and performance piece can be seen at Arnolfini in Bristol. Further artists involved in the performance are: Emma Hart, Richard Scott and Kieron Livingstone. More info.
From 13 September until 3 November, Edwin Burdis will be participating in the group show A Journey Through London Subculture: 1980s to Now, a offsite project by the Institute of Contemporary Arts. The show features work from 60 influential figures from London’s art scene and will be held at The Old Selfridges Hotel, London. More info.
The gallery is delighted to announce its representation of artist Edwin Burdis. Edwin Burdis explores a unique and extravagant fusion between art, music and sub-cultural references, working across painting, sound, sculpture and drawing. His drawings and paintings often set the tone for performances, all part of an on-going compulsion to produce. Visit his Artist Page for further information about his work.
In October, Vitrine will be moving from the first floor space in 183-185 Bermondsey Street to the larger, street level space to reflect our expanding program and a successful first year at this address. Vitrine will launch with a solo exhibition of work by Basel-based British artist Clare Kenny, whose work is a hybrid of photography and sculpture.
Zouch Magazine have published a joint interview with Miriam Austin and Adam James, speaking about their exhibition at VITRINE. When asked about the opportunity to present work in VITRINE’s multi-faceted Bermondsey Square space, James states ‘It is a very rare thing to have the opportunity to move so freely between these platforms’.
