SANDRA  ZANETTI

PERFORMANCE ARTIST

Sandra Zanetti is an artist whose practice spans performance, sound, installation, video, and painting. Their carefully orchestrated pieces, composed of suggestion and symbol, reveal cyclical patterns within a variety of formalistic tendencies within our fabricated society by delving into the omnipresence of both micro and macro power dynamics our world and the self are built in response to. The most recent project the artist has undertaken involves training as a boxer in London with a coach from Brooklyn in real life after the dissolution of a fraught relationship. Zanetti has been performing live violent situations in their studio under the name, Sandy “Chicago Steel” Barbella. The goal of this work is to reevaluate forcibly submissive positions within the prevailing dynamics within the artist's personal life and relationships. The finale of the work premieres at Central Saint Martin's on June 25, 2024. Scan here to RSVP: 

 CATRIONA GRAY

INCISENTAL ABUNDANCE


The Celebrated Camden Photograhic Artist

 

Catriona Gray is a Kentish Town-based experimental photographic artist working with slow analogue processes that explore the physical nature of the photographic surface. This body of work uses hardy street weeds - the survivors, the punks, the anarchists of the plant world - to make camera-less photographic work. She teaches alternative photographic processes at Darkroom London on Marsden Street NW5.

Drawings in oil and pastel are made on location and from observation, using mark-marking to map out the experience of being in a particular place.   Vibrant monotypes depicting abstracted imagined landscapes embrace uncertainty and happy accidents that occur during the print making process. with this exhibition, Jolene and Spring up Gallery hope to bring a splash of colour to the street during the winter months.

HEATHER BLOCKEY

Heather Blockey has been a creative maverick since graduating from the London College of Fashion in the 1980s. First working as a wig maker and stylist, her sculptural designs were featured in The Observer and in windows such as Liberty, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and in New York and other high fashion stores internationally. She went on to further her art practice in black/white photography at Camden's Working Men's College and later, Fine Art, at Byam Shaw/Central St Martins UAL working in sculpture, installation and painting. 

In the last ten years Heather's blending of art and social conscience turned towards photojournalism and her arresting photographs were soon being published in such titles as The Guardian and Vogue.
