FACES & TRACES | vogue [italian]

 

italian vogue recently featured some words and video footage in a summary of the FACES & TRACES exhibition – still going on now – at the swatch art peace hotel in shanghai.

the exhibition features work from all artists that have completed a residency at the hotel over the past three years since the hotel’s opening in 2011.

chinese landscape | tao hongjing

 

 

karin janssen is a dutch artist and gallery owner who divides her time between london and the netherlands while exhibiting her work and running her project space in hackney.

although we just barely missed meeting each other in person – karin visited shanghai just after I left – she was lucky enough to meet with some of my favorite shanghai-based artists, roland darjes, alexandre ouairy, and stefano ogliari badessa, each of whom are referenced in this article by karin.

the main topic of focus is the CHINESE LANDSCAPE solo exhibition, hosting the work of good friend and fellow-artist, tao hongjing [who plays with the subject of china’s dual identity in his own unique, multi-layered way].

A SHOT IN THE DARK | Strictly Designers [images]

 

thank you for everyone that came to the little victories solo exhibition to see my recent work, A SHOT IN THE DARK, at strictly designers united last thursday. the one-day pop up exhibition was a nice [somewhat sassy] success. in spite of the high temperatures outside, strictly kept everything cool and entertained until late as usual. thanks, guys.

special thanks to matthew waddick and savinder bual for their photographs, strictly designers united, and to little victories gallery – and the brilliant artists behind it – for their direction and drive [quite literally, as the mobile space was transported to the cool docks on the day of the show].

strictly is also moving locations soon – support them in their new space, and stay tuned for future projects we may work together on in the next few months.

LITTLE VICTORIES - Website1

shanghai’s newest mobile gallery space is artist-powered [literally, as the artist owners will be using their leg muscles to keep the space mobile] and was founded by artists katie surridgejulian palacz and stefano ogliari badessi who met in shanghai through a residency program. the crew of international artists found their inspiration for the showspace through the idea of censorship and its continuous presence in china.

little victories was established in 2013 in shanghai, china with the objective of running a thought provoking exhibition programme of dedicated group and solo shows.
