Studio 44 at Supermarket Art Fair 2017

At the Supermarket Art Fair 2017, with the theme “Intimacy”, we created a scenographic living room.
In this room, gallery members have been invited to participate with their own works or contributions freely to the theme.
The contributions will not be presented with names, but it should feel like home, where all works have a history but no nameplate.
In the room/booth there will be nice furniture, a TV with its own films, coffee, etc. Our hope is that visitors will feel welcome to sit down for a while to discuss art and other things and that contacts with other groups will be made.

This year at Supermarket Art Fair 2017, in acknowledgment of the theme ‘Intimacy’ we have curated a staged living room environment. ‘A room of our own where we have included various artworks from members of Studio 44, alongside our own private belongings. Thereby presenting ourselves as artists while simultaneously opening up the dialogue around the private/public realm that the artist inhabits.

We have chosen to present Studio 44 at Supermarket Art Fair by allowing all members who want to contribute with a photo or other image, free on this theme. Or, of course, a drawing or a small rough sculpture or the like. These grants will not be accompanied by the nameplate.

The images are then mounted on the wall in a theatrical and artificial “home environment”.
The booth will be decorated with used furniture, wallpaper, carpets, and a television set where any film can be shown.
We hope it will feel welcome to hang out for a while and take a coffee or a couple of glasses of wine and discuss art and other subjects.

‘A room of our own – an open invitation into the public/private realm of Studio 44 members.
