A Rose is without a ‘why’… @ Carl Freedman Gallery, Jul 16 – Aug 19

15 July 2016

The A Rose is without a ‘why’. It blooms because it blooms group exhibition is on at London’s Carl Freedman Gallery, opening July 19 and running to August 19.

There is little information on the themes of the show except that it’s curated by Sean Steadman, and features work by the London-based artist himself, as well as Marcela Florido, Kira Freije, Gabriel Hartley, Sebastian Jefford, Benito Mayor Vallejo, and Zadie Xa.

Steadman, meanwhile, had his first solo exhibition at London’s Project Native Informant in late 2015 with a title that shares a similarly existential sentiment —The Earth is the Earth Because it is Nothing Other Than the Earth. He has also took part in a recent iteration of Marcelle Joseph Projects’ At Home Salon earlier this year in which fellow A Rose is without a ‘why’… exhibitor Xa also showed.

See the Carl Freedman Gallery website for more details.**

Tori Wrånes @ Carl Freedman Gallery, Feb 24 – Apr 2

23 February 2016

Tori Wrånes‘ solo exhibition Drastic Pants is on at London’s Carl Freedman Gallery, opening February 24 and running to April 2.

The Norwegian artist will open the presentation of sculptural work with a two-hour performance, which will most likely involve prosthetic make up and various props to deform appearance and soundscapes create new dreamlike configurations.

Past works have included ‘Stone and Singer’ (2014) where a person wears a mask with really big and permanently concerned eyes, lit up, centre stage, and ‘Track of Horns’ (2015) with long white haired people with big noses riding ski lifts playing horns and trumpets as they pass each other in the Italian Alps.
