Mary Wintour at FOLD Gallery

art:i:curate artist Mary Wintour participates in the group exhibition entitled 'Either those curtains..' at FOLD gallery in London.

 

The title of the exhibition is inspired by Oscar Wilde’s last words "Either those curtains go, or I do" and explores the true central point of individual freedom by an artistic response to interior space. This concerns both the physical sense of a body in a space and the cognitive inner space in order to illustrate the way in which people can use such spaces. In this way, the systemic conformity is obeyed and auxiliary logics and perceptual alternatives are created.

 

This exhibition explores the notion of curating a personal interior space and its reflection of people’s attitudes to the shared social construction of civility in the exterior world and emphasises on our perception that tends to become virtual. A home is a curated realm, in which direct social gatherings are inherently dominated by the individual. The concept of it being simply a dwelling space is exceeded by the interior of a home, as we arrange and enhance interior space in such ways that mirror our values. 

 

 

Mary Wintour, Literal Drift, 2014, acrylic on card, 34.7 x 33.2 cm.

 

 

Mary Wintour is a visual artist whose artistic practice imagines locations in which the margins of formal and psychological space are fluid. This is brought to life by using paint as a medium to edit and fuse together images from interior design magazines. She is interested in how recognised details of domestic environments can become charged when introduced to new contexts, and uses the resulting discord to generate a departure from familiarity. In largely omitting these spaces’ inhabitants, she explores a tableau of objects’ potential to suggest a narrative.

 

Participating artists: Dan Davis, Asmund Havsteen-Mikkelsen, Laura Bygrave, Ian Monroe, Victoria Adam, Matt Ager, Bruce McLean, Mary Wintour.

 

The exhibition will open on the 13th May and will run until Saturday, 18th of June 2016.
