Review of In Infancy by Paul Carey-Kent for FAD magazine:


July 2016

I will be exhibiting in ‘In Infancy’ with Sarah Gillham

In infancy

PV Tuesday 19 July 6 – 8.30pm

Open daily (9am- 9pm) 20 July – 26 September 2016

Blyth Gallery, level 5 Sherfield Building, Imperial College, London, SW7 2AZ

In Infancy reveals the beginnings of two autobiographical projects initiated by artists Sarah Gillham and Mindy Lee shortly before and since the birth of their sons. This work in progress shows an evolving narrative growing out of intimate moments of daily domestic life. These private moments submerged within infancy disconnect from a sentimental nostalgia to transform routine, ritual and fetishisation into a mythology of the bodies’ inner and outer states. These bodies of work also echo and mirror the interconnectedness of life and death.

Opening Friday 11 September 2015.

Running from Sat 12 September – Sun 27 September

Galeria OFF Piotrwska proudly presents the upcoming group show “Once in Blue Moon”. Aleksandra Frankowska, Rodney Dee, Mindy Lee, Line Krom, Max Pauer, Niloufar Shiriani, Krzysztof Ślaziński, Susan Sluglett and Mamadou Touré aka Béhan – a selection of nine artists from Great Britain, Germany, Iran, Poland and Senegal revel in the colour Blue.

Blue appears to be the world’s most popular colour according to surveys. Blue is associated with trust, serenity and union. In art and popular culture many examples immediately spring to mind such as: Picasso’s “blue period”, Yves Klein’s blue monochromes and multinational blue branding used by Facebook, IKEA and Nivea etc.

Aleksandra Frankowska, Rodney Dee, Mindy Lee, Line Krom, Max Pauer, Niloufar Shiriani, Krzysztof Ślaziński, Susan Sluglett and Mamadou Touré aka Béhan explore the colours sumptuous elegance in technical, metaphorical and sensual ways, through illusionistic and physical dimensions. The exhibition will be a visual and physical feast, including edible, blue sculptures.

The title “Once in a Blue Moon” refers to an English saying meaning a rarely occurring event. A blue moon, a full moon occurring twice in a calendar month, only arises every 2,4 years. Picking up on the rare occasion as leitmotif the curators invite the public to submit blue coloured everyday objects building a bazar in all shades of blue. Both art works and everyday objects will be on display and for sale in the gallery.

‘On Innards’ in Body Horror and Shapeshifting: A Multidisciplinary Exploration, 2014.
Edited by Jessica Folio and Holly Luhning,
Inter-Disciplinary Press,
pp. 51-88. ISBN 9781848883062

Amanda Couch and Andrew Hladky and Mindy Lee presented ‘On Innards’ at Body Horror 2, an international interdisciplinary conference in Athens, from 1-3 November 2013. It is now represented in three chapters in the e-book volume, ‘Body Horror and Shapeshifting’,

About Body Horror and Shapeshifting: A Multidisciplinary Exploration, 2014.
The body is unveiled, not as a terra incognita, but as terra to be rediscovered. The authors – whose diverse origins echo the multiple media used to convey their ideas – establish a link between bodily metamorphosis and psychological fissures. The body is a locus of paradoxes: deformed, infected, monstrosised or negated but at the same time fascinating, intimate or sensual. Here, readers will open the door of disruption. They will explore the flesh or the inner processes of the body, the idea of its degeneration, even its perception as a gaping wound. The authors in this volume question the very notion of identity as they embark on a journey to reflect on the self. Life itself is a shapeshifting dance we unknowingly join in its myriad of colours and moves.

In part two: ‘A Sensory Voyage of the Body’, the three chapters of ‘On Innards’ are:
a) ‘Reflection on Digestion: The Mouth’ by Amanda Couch;
b) ‘On Innards: Presentation of Artwork’ by Amanda Couch, Andrew Hladky and Mindy Lee;
c) ‘On Innards: A Three-Way Conversation’ by Amanda Couch, Andrew Hladky and Mindy Lee.

Group Show and Event

on innards

Blyth Gallery, 5th Floor Sherfield Building, Imperial College, Exhibition Road, London, SW7 2AZ.
8 October – 7 November 2014.

On Innards is a multidisciplinary project developed by artists Amanda Couch, Andrew Hladky and Mindy Lee, that explores the changing conceptualisations of guts and digestion, their impact on the creative process and the role they play in constructing and destabilising our sense of self.

The project will involve an exhibition at Blyth Gallery, Imperial College, from 8 October until 7 November 2014, with an opening reception on 7 October 2014 from 6 until 8.30pm. To accompany the exhibition there will be a daylong multidisciplinary event at Blyth Gallery and Kensington & Chelsea Central Library on 11 October 2014 from 10am until 5pm.
On Innards | Exhibition | 8 October – 7 November 2014

The exhibition at Blyth Gallery will consist of artwork by Hladky, Lee and Couch exploring intestines, entrails, and the digestive process as material, image, and metaphor. They will show paintings, objects and prints that move between representation and realism, making reference to Gaston Bachelard’s claim that digestion ‘is the origin of the strongest kind of realism’. Central to the work is the desire to avoid the flattening effects of representation and encourage more embodied ways for people to encounter artwork. We hope to remind our audience of their physical presence in relation to images and language, as well as showing the inner workings of the image and text.

Cutting across media, Amanda Couch’s work uses the processes and lived experience of her own body as material and metaphor to create images and objects that are both visceral and narrative. Andrew Hladky is interested in the inner bodily processes of his paintings, revealing the conflict between their surface illusion and the lumpen material that forms them. Mindy Lee’s plated paintings are served as a cannibalistic smorgasbord of revived images regurgitated from historical painting.
On Innards | Event | 11 October 2014

Accompanying the exhibition Lee, Couch and Hladky will lead a participatory and experiential day-long event exploring multi-disciplinary perspectives on digestion, innards and the interior body. It will bring together researchers and practitioners from the fields of gastroenterology, cultural theory, art history, yoga, performance and fine art and the medical humanities, and participants to share knowledge and experiences. The event is free and open to all.

Recent medical research re-imagines the digestive system as a sensory organ and second brain, the site of our most direct and complex physical exchange with the external world. It has a profound effect on our mood and ability to function, but its reasoning remains largely inaccessible to our awareness. The idea that our guts lurk behind the scenes exerting a decisive influence on our actions is an unsettling one, challenging modern cerebro-centred images of selfhood and agency. This event will highlight some of the ways different imaginings of the gut can clash with customary ways of viewing our bodies and ourselves.
On Innards / Event is free, open to all and on a first come, first serve basis. Tickets should be booked in advance via Eventbrite, http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/on-innards-event-tickets-12834078073
On Innards is generously supported by University for the Creative Arts, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Imperial College and is a part of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Celebration of Science 2014.
