You are the invited to the opening of our exhibition at 11:00am on 7th April 2018.
THE NEW NEW is a combined exhibition by partner-artists Mrs + Mr Luke. Faatimah Mohamed-Luke and Al Luke (ALFA) & Furio Tedeschi. They create objects and print works that clearly shift the focal points of contemporary African art from character-based portraits exploring identity, to situationist-like explorations of the individual in relation to time and place.
Working in a multidisciplinary vein, the two have forged combined, yet separate, practices that include pop elements, abstraction, product design and enhancement, as well as social comment.
IIntroducing Furio Tedeschi
Tedeschi is one the world’s foremost designers and sculptors of visual effects figures. His personal projects include the reimaging of mythical figures, and characters of antiquity. The exhibition at the Daville Baillie Gallery will consist of mystical, yet imaginary masks and heads.
A collection of out-of-place artifact skulls set in ancient dark arts “My themes are usually based on life bringing death, and vice versa. Through this I reflect and explore a technological ancient past – or even future.”
