Sue Tompkins + Matthew Damhave are presenting Don‘t be far from me at London’s Tenderbooks, opening March 7 and running to April 8.
Curated by Caroline Stevenson with the art publication space, the exhibition and month-long residency “celebrates the connections these artists make between objects, people and place”.
The event will kick off with a performance by Glasgow-based artist Tompkins on the opening night, whose work is closely “absorbed with language.” Often sifting through song lyrics and fragments of speech, her work extends and animates into performance. NYC-based artist and designer Damhave, meanwhile, works in painting, zines and textiles, engaging in a process of bricolage.
Both artists will come together to explore “bookshop as a site” and will also be producing an artist’s book during the residency.share news item
