The Limbo exhibition at the Slade School of Fine Art was the culmination of work by recent graduates participating in the Slade Summer Art Education Residency, July 2019. Artists included: Araminta Blue, Jione Choi, Lewis Davidson, Farnaz Gholami, Elena-Andreea Teleaga and myself. During my residency, I created this installation of ‘falling leaves’ as a reflection on my time at Slade and on the precipice of change on which I stood, about to leave school; move house and embark on the unknown. I repurposed dyed canvas from a previous painting and cut the leaf shapes. I formed them with rsg and applied paint through various techniques.
Exhibtion by Johanna Baudou, Jazmin Donaldson, Farnaz Gholami, Liam Mertens, Monica Perez Vega and Sarah Tew
4 – 28 April 2019
We have followed vanishing borders. See how at the edge of the canvas the world unfolds. A language is being built into a distance. We have written our own departures. Far from the sharp limit of place, a horizon emerges and we dissolve.
With transience and movement comes a feeling of existing in a “third space” or non-place; belonging neither here nor there, and because of that, there is a search for an ideal place. Through a language that highlights the fluidity of identity and borderless space, we see a lapse of time: that of coming and going, of speed and stillness, fragments of being; and a deconstruction to re-construct elsewhere.
