Today I went to see a man called Duart at Westminster Reference Library, just behind the National Gallery. He contacted me through the Slade Degree show. They’ve asked me to put on an exhibition of sculptures and books for the length of August, which will be my first solo show. It is an ideal place for my work, it feels like my territory, which is good, because we didn’t know where my sculptures would best be placed. Although we are also looking at another opportunity in a reliable white-walled commercial gallery. I’m enjoying experimenting with locations and markets.
I’m glad to hear Duart used the tea bag on the business card from the show. Like Duart said, “well why not?” Don’t keep them, guys, they’ll never be worth anything more than a cup of tea.
