Blank is pleased to present lO, a group exhibition marking the gallery’s 10 year anniversary.
Featuring intimate and lesser known works by artists of the gallery, the show offers ways in which to view the artists’ practices from a different perspective while highlighting various stages of their creative production over the past ten years.
“Listen was made at Greatmore, when I still had my studio there. I found a roll of paper that another artist had discarded outside, exposed to the elements. When I unrolled it I found several layers of floral wallpaper. Using a heatgun, I burned the image of my face in profile into the paper. I tried to hide myself as much as possible in the paper’s pattern; almost like camouflage. At the heart of the work is a desire to almost disappear into the environment, be invisible while paying attention, observing and listening.” –Igshaan Adams
