***Call out to artists – Why do you make art?***
My upcoming solo exhibition at Surface Gallery, Nottingham, will see me exhibit 20 perfumes. Each perfume will be a portrait of another artist, achieved through an established process that begins by asking artists the question ‘why do you make art?’ Then, through a method of intuition and investigation, I choose relevant and meaningful oils based on the answer received in order to create a fragrance that captures the essence of who you are.
What I need first and foremost though is 20 artists willing to provide a response to the question ‘why do you make art?’ So if you’re an artist (in any sense of the word) and are interested in the idea of encapsulating your persona in fragrance, then I’d love to hear from you with a response to the question ‘Why do you make art?’
The call out works on a first-come-first-served basis. But if I do already have 20 artists by the time you submit your response don’t worry – I’ll use it for one of my solo shows coming up in 2018.
Looking forward to reading your responses and getting to work creating wonderful fragrances!
Perfume as Practice will run at Surface Gallery from 3rd – 18th November 2017.
EXHIBITION OPPORTUNITY. I am going to be in a group show in Athens in May as part of a group exhibition called Platforms.
In an effort to raise funds we are calling out to artists to exhibit small works to be part of the show. We are charging everyone £5, and your work must be made on a food or drinks label.
Your work can be any subject and take any form, and must be presented unframed and unmounted. It must also fit within the frame of the label. You can basically do anything you want as long as you’ve used a food or drinks label as the surface of the work!
It can for sale (please keep it under 100 euros) and the deadline for entries is 10th April. If you want to be involved, let me know by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
