Feb 22 - Mar 23, 2019
Private view Fri Feb 22 6pm - 8pm
Anna Barham and Chiara Camoni will present a collaborative project based on repetition, curated by Caterina Avataneo. Zenzic is a structure made with Barham’s CFF Bracket (1016). Originally commissioned by Site Gallery, Sheffield to create a vast display structure, Barham designed the steel brackets as a way of building that would mimic the way that crystals form by repeating the geometry of their unit cell over and over. For Zenzic Barham has designed a new form with the brackets on which to display a selection from a series of 250 pencil on paper drawings of stars made by Chiara Camoni’s Grandmother. Camoni will also respond to Barham’s structure, producing a new work to be displayed on it alongside the drawings.

'Sometimes I look at an image and remember that I used to worry about death a lot when I was a kid. Not like the process of dying or illness but the impossibility of comprehending not existing anymore. So if I’ve made something like this that is very simple but kind of difficult to understand in any specific way I just assume that’s what I was thinking of. This used to have features, like an eye and a nose and a mouth but I painted them out which made it a kind of mirror which is what this image is to me. Thinking about my inability to comprehend how I won’t exist reminds me of the uncanny feeling of looking in a mirror too long at night.'
