So we had our meeting with Elly today, and everything sounds really exciting. She wants me and Genea to be in charge of taking the image for the invitation for Wunderkammer.
W U N D E R K A M M E R is a travelling show of small works that fit within the confines of a hand-luggage sized suitcase. So far it has been exhibited at Clarke Gallery in Berlin, Eastern Edge Gallery, St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada (where it was installed by Jessica Brouder) and, mostly recently, at Franklin Furnace in New York.
WUNDERKAMMER began with 11 works by Berlin-based artists but changes as it goes, as some works are sold and others taken on in each new location.
Me and Genea will be taking the image on saturday, these are some of the passt invitations to Wunderkammer
Elly said she has used her grandmothers sofa in her old flat before, because it brings back the idea that her house was her gallery, but no the exhibition is moving into a gallery she wants to take it in that context.
We will also be helping her instal the exhibition on the 7th and 8th which is really exciting and will be good experience.
Then the big project…
