Thrilled to announce that my work was exhibited at Kimberly Clark Gallery as part of ‘100 Years of OUI’ on 29th April 2017.
Kimberly Clark is a dispenser gallery situated in an undisclosed UK public toilet. Distributing high art on low quality paper hand towels to unexpected users, KC attempts to dismantle the institutional framework, forcing art into our everyday lives.
‘100 years of OUI’ invites artists to reflect and create innovative, original pieces that celebrate Marcel Duchamp’s ‘Fountain’ 1917. Situated in a gent’s public toilet, Kimberly Clark provides a platform for dialogical exchanges, aiming to create unique viewer experiences.
The paper towel with my art work printed onto it is left entirely in the hands of the public, the longevity of it cannot be predetermined. It may have been thrown away or disguarded like the Trolleys in my piece or it could have been taken home and preserved, given significance, mimicking the posters I create to highlight the lost, abandoned and forgotten about items in our everyday lives. Only the viewer and receiver of this paper towel knows. I kind of like that….
