Holly Slingsby in conversation @ Tintype, Jun 12

12 June 2015

Holly Slingsby‘s Behind the Curtain wraps this Saturday with a conversation with writer and broadcaster Morgan Quaintance at London’s Tintype Gallery tonight, June 12 at 6:30pm.

The London-based artist’s solo show at the Essex gallery comes as part of Tintype Project Space, an annual event that invites an artist to use the gallery as a studio space, followed by an exhibition show. With Behind the Curtain, Slingsby enacts a cross between performance and installation, transforming the gallery’s large windows to the street into a temporary tableaux vivant.

In her performances, Slingsby plays with religious and mythical traditions, using her body like a costumed prop to question our familiarity and reliance on unquestioned tropes and traditions. To wrap up the solo show, she has one final conversation with Quaintance, discussing the inspirations, methods, and ideas that went into Behind the Curtain.

Flora Parrott @ TINTYPE, Mar 11 – Apr 19

11 March 2014

Flora Parrott is presenting solo exhibition Fixed Position at London’s TINTYPE gallery, running March 11 to April 19.

As the UK iteration of a curatorial collaboration with by Maria Montero of Phosphorus Gallery in São Paulo, the show explores ideas of ‘merging’ and ‘nowhereness’ in the virtual space, in parallel with that of the pitch black darkness of the PETAR Caves in Brazil.

As one of the largest concentrations of limestone caves in the world, Parrott’s disorienting experience there inspired her investigations into “certainty of position, fixity and the way we are defined by our edges” using three-dimensional diagrams to pin down and articulate instinctive experience across media.
