Annely Juda Fine Art, London / 15 March - 2 May 2018

Installation of CANWEYE { } (2016) as part of the group exhibition 'Islands' curated by The Russian Club at Annely Juda Fine Art, with artists: Mania Akbari and Douglas White, The Golden Family, Phil Coy and Frances Scott.

In 1993 Annely Juda Fine Art organised the exhibition 'Partners', a selection of works by artists who, either through marriage or otherwise, were considered partners in their personal rather than professional lives. The exhibition, including paintings and sculptures by (among others): Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth; Kenneth and Mary Martin; Alexander Rodchenko and Varvara Stepanova, gave an insight into the possible influences these relationships had on each of the artists, on “…interrelations and interconnections, dependencies and independencies, trusts and betrayals…” The exhibition 'Islands' takes this premise as its starting-point in considering a selection of contemporary artists whose methods have become intertwined with that of their partners. Driven perhaps in-part by social, political and economic factors, the current emphasis on collaboration and obscuring of roles, even identities allows for an interesting comparison to previous generations and times.
