FaceValueKPF curated by Gary Mansfield

Opening Dec 14th for 5 days
FaceValueKPF, a group show
The Strand Gallery
curated by Gary Mansfield, including the work of:

Ray Richardson, Sarah Lucas, Gavin Turk, Vic Reeves, Marcus Harvey, Lee Ainsworth, Ben Oakley, Gary Mansfield , Martin Creed, Courty, David Bray, Jessica Albarn, Laura Keeble, Wendy Mayer, Noel Fielding, Carrie Reichardt, Nicola Green, STATIC, Eddy Parnell, Sarah Maple, Michelle Mildenhall, Cathy Lomax, Claire Partington, Lewis Bannister, Faisal Abdu’Allah, Candice Tripp, Elizabeth Waggett, Guy Denning and the Chapman Brothers

Gary Mansfield has collaborated with some of Britain’s finest artists to create FaceValueKPF with the intention of confronting identity new & old and the value society places on both.

Each artwork featured in FaceValueKPF is a metaphor for a person who’s visual identity has been altered. Each piece is unique to this show and has been physically manipulated, by a third party, changing its visual identity to various extents.

Every donated artwork is for sale and has been given the artists’ original face value price from as little as £10 to £18,000. You may believe a forced change of visual identity detracts from the original worth or just makes it more unique , either way you can bid here.

“Too many lives have been marred by horrific accidents or deliberate attacks that have changed the way they look. I hope this exhibition will generate not only awareness about the issues people face after suffering scars or burns, but also much needed funds in aid of The Katie Piper Foundation”

100% of the proceeds of the FaceValueKPF exhibition are going directly to The Katie Piper Foundation, a charity whose vision is to have a world where scars do not limit a person’s function, social inclusion or sense of well being.

— I sent a Sally Doll, of course.

WONDROUS OBSESSIONS: THE ART OF COLLECTING

This Friday sees the opening of the “Wondrous Obsessions: The Art of Collecting”, an exhibition curated by The Connor Brothers at Hang-Up Gallery in London.

You can see the pre-show interview I did with Mike Snelle here

To view the collection of works by Butch Anthony, Candice Tripp, The Connor Brothers, Dr. Victor Schroeder, Giles Walker, Joe Webb, John Henry Toney, Laura Keeble, Mark Powell and Swoon, you can see the catalogue here.

Don’t forget to RSVP to the Private View launch this Thursday from 6 – 9 pm. RSVP is essential as spaces are already limited – please do so here.

The show’s theme provided me a chance to let go of any stylistic restraints I (now realise that I unthinkingly) impose on myself as well as exhibit a one-off etching from Goldmark Atelier that would otherwise have remained hidden in my studio.

The collaborative painting that Butch Anthony and I worked on together will also be on show for the first time in the UK. Receiving that canvas from the US was something of a treat because until recently, I had only seen’s Butch’s addition online.
