New Exhibition, 'Reversiones' Opens Thursday 23 November At Centro De La Imagen In Mexico City

Absolutely delighted to announce my forthcoming group exhibition, 'Reversiones' at the Centro De La Imagen in Mexico City, part of the E.Folio.001, an encounter on the Contemporary Photobook, curated by Mariela Sancari, wonderful Museum, Centro De La Imagen and curated by the amazing Natasha Christia. I am honoured to be working with all on this show and exhibiting with artist, Brad Feuerhelm, Lewis Bush and Vincent Delbrouck. The exhibition will run from 23 November through to Mid March 2018, with an exciting educational programme running alongside.

I would like to extend my huge thanks to all at ROSEGALLERY, who made this exhibition possible and to all friends and colleagues whose commitment to my practice is heartwarming - my deepest thanks to each and everyone one of you.

"This exhibition starts from the sacred place of the library to a profane land of appropriation, recycling and reinventions of the (photo) book, as an object in process: an object open to subversive reinterpretations of hegemonic authorships and stories.

Reversiones hosts (photo) books that revisit great milestones of photography, (photo) books that are envisaged with forms and ideological baggage of others in order to subvert them and make visible identities and hidden narratives, as well as (photo) books that are fractured and They revert, challenging their own story, form and signature of author.

All of them testify, as tools of activism, the complicity of the images with the narratives and the dominant ideologies of our "liquid times", as they suggest the need for a novel reading of history through the support of (photo) book . An insubstantial reading that does not hesitate to deconstruct the axioms and stories of the photograph itself."

"A Motley Crew" - New Group Exhibition Opens At Christain Larsen Gallery, Stockholm On 16 Nov.

I am absolutely delighted to be part of a new exhibition at Christain Larsen Gallery, in Stockholm, "A Motley Crew" which opens this coming Thursday 16 November and runs until 16 December. The show promises to be a beautiful curation with selected works from some astounding artists, Caroline Achaintre, Olivia Bax, Ross Taylor and Thomas Sauvin & I's delicate, destructive works from our collaborative series, Lunar Caustic. Below is an excerpt from the press release -

"Christian Larsen is pleased to present A Motley Crew featuring five UK based artists Caroline Achaintre, Melinda Gibson & Thomas Sauvin, Olivia Bax and Ross Taylor. Although there may not be one prevailing theme that unites the artists featured, there are strands and commonalities that thread themselves throughout, from the immediacy and malleability of their mediums and material to the feeling that each of the artists imbue their work with multiple personalities, never quite resolving into one thing or the other, but existing as their own distinctive selves."

I certainly look forward to all that Stockholm and Sweden has to offer, having never visited Sweden before I can not wait to taste and sample all of the delights of the city. As a Baker's daughter who likes her beer, I certainly need to tease out, fresh-from-the-oven kardemummabullar and Omnipollo, a local gypsy brewer making some of the most interesting beers in Scandinavia! I can't wait.
