LONDON ART FAIR | ART PROJECTS
16 – 20 JANUARY 2019
Join us for the London Art Fair and see the work of three young, emerging artists: Paola Ciarska, Kara Chin and Daniel Davies, as they explore ideas of subjectivity and representation in the overlap between our physical and digital lives. For January 2019 we will look at the inner lives of characters simultaneously seeing and being seen, thoughts about webcam performances and social media anxiety, about post-truth and virtual reality and of the public dissemination of private experiences. Check out:
Paola Ciarska’s new MTV Cribs series in which she renovates the private portraits she is known for into documents of ‘90s US music stars, from Beyoncé to Kim Kardasian! 🤩 Paola’s work describes domestic spaces that are caught between the privacy of home and the live streams of internet webcasters and camgirls. We’ve recently started representing Ciarska,and will be taking her work to Art Rotterdam in February, so expect big things! “Clearly the work of a skilled artist but Paola’s creative path is an unconventional one and reveals a spontaneous talent.” – Daphne Milner, It’s Nice That, 2018
Kara Chin’s stunningly detailed new ceramic sculptures that tell the story of alien creatures shocked into the realisation that the world they knew might well be a simulation. Following her well-received degree show at the Slade 🔥 Kara has been awarded the prestigious Woon Tai Jee Fellowship, and you can also see her work right now as part of the Bloomberg New Contemporaries at the South London Gallery until the 24th February!
Daniel Davies’s new beautiful, layered paintings embodying his affection for touch and surface as well as his fascination with how visual culture comes to us through the screen swipes of mobile apps 🤳 A challenge to contemporary media, his paintings attempt to wrestle memories and emotions back from social media into a more tactile memorial to the people they represent. “Davies’s process of making — copying, tiling, reworking — enhances our awareness of the process by which we access information at ever-increasing speeds.” – Sarah Monro, Director of Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art.
So COME AND SEE US!!!! We’ll be in booth P7.

A scaffolding structure will pierce the dividing wall at IMT gallery; the partition acting as a mirror that reflects the physical diagram across the two spaces.
Its anatomy is already doubling, self-replicating across the bifurcated gallery.
Snow Crash is a speculative architecture for alternative infrastructures that is flexibly built to respond to the artworks it houses. Artworks that exist in tension with the framework and will impinge on it, spill out from it and will be performed in and around the physical diagram. Assembled out of scaffolding, Snow Crash renders its own configuration visible and provisional, with the potential to be reformulated and adapted to future contexts. Snow Crash’s diagrammatic structure facilitates the ability for the autonomous artistic practices to go off in different directions but to reside in one place, enabling us to consider the complexity of the collective and the equally complex infrastructures that could support it. Snow Crash produces a project that thinks of itself as a scaffold, as opposed to a container, and as result has the propensity to suggest alternative and expansive forms of viewing art.
