London’sDKUK Salon are putting on “Work” and other works by Ian Breakwell opening February 17 and running April 19.
Artist Daniel Kelly, who runs the Peckham hair dressing art space, has selected and curated a small selection of Breakwell’s work, such as ‘Continuous Diary’ (1984) and ‘Dialogues’ (1981), which will play softly to people through a directional speaker during the shampooing part of the appointment – after the initial hair consultation.
Much of Breakwell’s work was developed from diaries. Combined with the specific context of DKUK Salon the show looks to be a warm and intimate one, faithful to the work of the late artist.
Like what you see on AQNB? We’d like to ask you for some help and encouragement by way of a monthly subscription to our Patreon. All funds raised will go directly to editorial commissioning and therefore support our contributors in their excellent work.
It is only through the dedication and generosity of everyone involved that AQNB manages to continue. More than ever we need to build a resilient space for independent media, one that works in collaboration with its artists, administrators, and audiences. Not everyone can afford to give donations we know - but if you can spare $1 a month, you like what AQNB is about and want to secure this space for the future, then please lend a hand and sign up. Thank u so much! <3
