One Paved Court is pleased to exhibit archival auras, the first UK solo show by American artist Gina DeCagna. By bringing together a series of interrelated works that comprise sculptural installations, prints, drawings and artist’s books, DeCagna looks at ways to question historical interpretations, integrating creative writing practices and visual art.

The exhibition features three series – Follow the American Dream; Self Portrait in a Convex Mirror and From Seeds Come Civilizations, – all made between 2013 and 2022. The selection of works uses various media and found materials, including paper receipts, complementary artist books, charcoal and graphite. Through these series the artist is interested in renegotiating and dissecting common interpretations, experimenting through acts of creative writing, collage techniques, and examinations of archival texts and documents.

The exhibition includes a free artist talk on Saturday 5 March 2022, 2pm. All welcome. Just turn up.

Artist:

Artist ( Description ): 

Gina DeCagna is an American artist and cultural producer who describes herself as ‘code-switching socially between the roles of artist, writer, editor, and publisher to transform material and language, as the expressive constituents of consciousness.’ By undertaking social engagements with collaborators and communities, by conducting archival or anthropological research, or by examining micro-histories, DeCagna seeks to connect the interpersonal with the sociological, situating herself within social discourses across time and space.

She has an MFA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths, University of London, 2020, and a BA in English, Creative Writing and Fine Arts from the University of Pennsylvania, 2016. She lives and works in London, UK.
