AR Hopwood False Memory Archive (thumbnail)

A.R. Hopwood has just produced a limited edition print, False Memory Archive: Damage caused to the walls of The Freud Museum London by previous art exhibitions (Emin Neon). This work is taken from a series of site-specific images made at The Freud Museum London for the artist’s recent national touring exhibition the False Memory Archive. The work is a photograph of damage caused to the walls of the Freud Museum by the hanging of a neon text work made by Tracey Emin for a previous exhibition at the museum.

Based upon scientific research that demonstrates how susceptible we are to false memories, The False Memory Archive evocatively reflected on the way we creatively reconstruct our sense of the past, while providing insight into the often humorous, obscure and uncomfortable things people have misremembered.

 

Eric Great-RexIslands, a series of ceramic tiles, play with the idea of metaphorical islands and the enigmatic territory of emotions and feelings. The islands of Anger and Regret are the possible unspoken or unrecognised areas within masculinity that we might find difficult to visit. The islands of Luck and Desire are the islands we all might want to land and spend time on.

Highlights from the London Art Fair

Kaleidoscope-5_1Yinka Shonibare MBE

KALEIDOSCOPE, 2014. Edition: 45

Cast brass, digitally printed cotton, lacquer, mirror, lens, glass, perspex, oil

Intended by the artist as both a ‘playful piece’ as well as a serious comment on male patriarchy, within this beautifully constructed kaleidoscope Shonibare has subverted the familiar image of Botticelli’s THE BIRTH OF VENUS by replacing the female nude with a photograph of a well-endowed naked male.

Corinne Felgate's Baby's Got the Wedgwood Blues on a mantelpieceCorinne Felgate

BABY’S GOT THE WEDGWOOD BLUES, 2014. Edition: 30

Flock on ceramic

This new edition draws on the heyday of Stoke-on-Trent’s iconic Wedgwood pottery, as well as its more recent demise, in an attempt to visualise a future potential for one of Britain’s last industrial heritage brands.

The flocked surface of the sculptures draws on Wedgwood’s lust for experimentation with surface colour and texture, and has been painstakingly matched to Wedgwood’s classic blues used on the Jasperware collections, which in turn endeavoured to emulate the tones and forms utilised on the roman artefacts he was so inspired by.
