A DENSE GLITTER OF ALTERNATIVES: Luke Burton & Alexander Page

Categories:

Preview: Tuesday 16 July 2013, 6.30 - 9.30pm

New work from artists Luke Burton and Alexander Page in a duo show exploring the relationship between aesthetic and emotional constraints.  The work presented will seek to map out the similarities and differences in the two artist's practices, interrogating their shared concern with surface, exposure and restraint; Using VITRINE Bermondsey Square's unique exhibition space as an experimental platform for this ongoing collaboration.

In Burton's delicate hanging works, tissue paper is saturated with glue to create a spatially commanding but fragile structure - corporeal and architectural gestures combine and probe the gap between controlled, emotional distance and direct expression. This probing finds echo in Page's series 'How I feel about you now' where a collage of multiple images, each rich in memory and association; collapse and synthesise psychological and architectural space.

The relationship between the two artists works as a nebulous and discursive collaboration, with both making distinct bodies of work that converse and interact.  The propositions offered by these create a discussion that maps the space between their practices as one of conversation and exchange.

His work has been exhibited at Turner Contemporary, Margate; Departure Foundation, London; Platform 1 Gallery, London; ECA, Edinburgh; Gallery Primo Alonso, London; no.w.here, London; Prague Biennial; Truck Art, Milan; and Film Arts Foundation, San Francisco.
