20130312153801-fm_ii_painting_700_3_mar_2013 Gretta Sarfaty’s Modes of Past  
by
Gretta Sarfaty at Sartorial Contemporary Art March 19th, 2013 - April 5th, 2013
Posted 4/11/13

Gretta Sarfaty gained international recognition in the late 70’ as a body-art and performance artist. Beginning with a traditional medium of painting, she early started to experiment with new media and performance. Even if her art has remained authentically ingenious over the years, the ways of her expression have changed, reflecting the evolution of digital technology. She has never been dogmatic: even when expressing a strongly feminist approach, she moves smoothly around multitude of questi... [more]

Bad Behaviour show review Oct 2012   On the walk from Brixton train station to visit Bad Behaviour, past clothes stalls, car mechanics and food wholesalers which operate underneath the arches – including the wonderfully named ‘Just Yams etc.’ – I wondered how this group exhibition was going to position itself.  Would it attempt to engage with the context of Brixton, its independent spirit and history of rebellion and rioting  – or was the ‘bad behaviour’ of the title indicative of more gener...

by
Anni Albers, Josef Albers, Marianne Brandt, Marcel Breuer, Walter Gropius, Johannes Itten, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Hannes Meyer, László Moholy-Nagy, Gunta Stölzl, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe at Barbican Art Gallery May 3rd, 2012 - August 12th, 2012
Posted 8/19/12

All too frequently the presentation and packaging of the Bauhaus to audiences has been to focus on the leading male quartet of Gropius, van der Rohe, Breuer and Meyer as the pioneers of a cold, precise, machine-driven sect whose tubular chairs and avant-garde works became stereotypical hallmarks of a ‘bourgeois’ European formalism. Barbican’s ‘Bauhaus: Art as life’ aims to inject the forgotten human endeavour and encounters that took place at Weimar and Dessau, back at the centre of the school’s... [more]

(Image: Maria Chevska, Eye of the Blackbird, 2011; © Tank Gallery, London) Maria Chevska (b. 1948, Oxford, England) Maria Chevska’s painted cobblestones refer to the materiality of the street. Retrieved from just below the surface of the road, these slightly subterranean objects have considerable gravity as paintings. The painted stripes on the surface of the stones are records of palettes used on her main body of paintings. The cobblestones therefore act as a storage or file-code of colours.... [more]
