British Museum acquires work by Stuart Brisley
 
The British Museum acquires State Occasion from The Museum of Ordure (2020) by Stuart Brisley from his recent exhibition Recent Paintings from the Museum of Ordure at the gallery in October 2020.

Brisley writes in his statement that accompanies the exhibition 'In the second painting and drawing she is similarly caught but this time in an 18th Century carriage taking her to and from the Houses of Parliament with the calculation of exposure.

In these images colours have been altered by using the cheap reproduction process of photocopying. By copying and altering the newspaper print the image is further veiled revealing the technical process thus distancing its relationship to the original source which had previously gone through another transcription in order to be printed in a newspaper'.

Images of the exhibition and a copy of the statement are available to view online here.

Two-person exhibition with Kara Chin.

Remedial Works is a two-person exhibition by artists Kara Chin and Harley Kuyck-Cohen at Quench Gallery, Margate. An installation of new sculptural works and video, Chin and Kuyck-Cohen have produced works invested in representing shifting notions of nature.

In its most basic form, ‘Remedial’ means to heal. In terms of architecture - remediation is the process of revisiting and repairing those poorly constructed buildings treated unkindly by the natural world.

The exhibition is free to the public but booking is essential. Visit https://www.quenchgallery.co.uk/ for more information and to book an appointment.
