Studio Visit #3 of 2019: Ludovica Gioscia. My first studio visit where I was able to personally activate a performative textile work that forms part of Gioscia’s Mad Lab Coat series. All works in the studio are off to Gioscia’s upcoming Fiorucci-inspired ‘paninaro’ commission for Museo della Figurina in Modena opening on 8 March. @ludovicagioscia#ludovicagioscia#museodellafigurina
These small paintings are done in a very different way to my large scale work. I usually have no plan for them. Because I use so much material, I have to plan the large ones so there’s not much waste when making, even though I want them to have the “I woke up like this” look 😂 These little ones are much more spontaneous and I feel less responsibility to make them work...if they happen to work, fine. If not, I scrape it off and start again.
Big studio clear up - cataloguing the nail House series of works ready for storage to make room for new work and space to work. This was a couple of days ago it’s now changed in there ...this was the calm before the storm.
Dark, swooping landscapes of North Europe are what hinges the paintings of artist @sifnorskov, who is part of @artpiq platform. In this interview, the artist speaks about how she believes in the creative freedom of painting that, coupled with its diverse nature, poses a challenge that she finds irresistible. Working quickly, the paintings are deliberately less planned to accumulate the intrinsic tension Nørskov desires to evoke. 📸 by @delilaholson. Interview by @vanessa.dateagle.

A volte ti sembra di vivere un momento come tanti, magari incasinato, confuso, complicato.
Poi, sempre a volte, alla fine capisci che era tutto parte di un disegno bellissimo di cui tu eri la protagonista.
Inconsapevole e sbadata.
Le navi che custodiscono vite, e segreti, e storie. Storie che restano anche quando le navi diventano relitti.
Perché relitti non lo diventino anche gli uomini, facciamo in modo che le storie siano storie di salvezza.
Old jigsaw-wielding studio selfie felt an appropriate pic pick for this Open Studios invite post... Come, see some work, have a drink, eat some snax on the river. Health and safety and a warm welcome guaranteed! 🍹🔪〰️Xx

I'll be talking on this panel - CODES OF PRACTICE: Deciphering Technology in Contemporary Women's Art - at The Courtauld Institute of Art, Thursday, May 10, 2018
6:00 PM 9:00 PM. It should be interesting discussion / debate ... I've certainly got a lot of opinions on this subject and the panel look fab. The Surge Team have done a fab job of putting this panel together.
FREE TICKETS: https://eastwingbiennial.org/visit/
Chaired by Dr Jo Applin, a specialist in modern and contemporary art and lecturer at The Courtauld , The discussion will investigate the use of technology in the work of contemporary female artists.
Alongside Sarah Alagroobi, a student whose work is exhibited in the SURGE show will be the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Artist in Residence Rachel Ara who’s work draws on her extensive career as a Computer Systems Designer. Awarded to pioneering artists working in technology, Rachel is a Near Now Fellow who will provide a key insight into what it means to be a woman artist creating and leading in this field. Katy Hessel, founder of the Great Women Artists Instagram account, which now has a staggering 18k followers and counting, will be bringing her expertise to the panel on the importance of celebrating past, present and future women artists. This event is free and open to all.
