MOSTYN, Wales UK is pleased to present two new exhibitions “In Conversation” by Los Angeles based Derek Boshier and Cardiff based S Mark Gubb.

The gallery’s ongoing “In Conversation” series brings together two solo exhibitions and presents the dialogue, collaboration or similarity in exploring themes that can occur between artists. This iteration, which stems from a chance introduction through a mutual friend between Derek Boshier and S Mark Gubb, takes the series a step further with Gubb co-curating the exhibition by Boshier in collaboration with MOSTYN Director, Alfredo Cramerotti.

Derek Boshier, who first came to prominence as part of the British Pop Art movement in the early 1960s, is also known for his work with cultural icons such as The Clash and David Bowie.

The exhibition includes a range of drawings, paintings, prints and videos, along with lesser-known photographic and sculptural works, and ephemera from the artist’s personal collection. Through this broad collection of works and artefacts, the exhibition reveals how Boshier’s creativity steps beyond the studio or gallery space. Containing works from the last four decades of the artist’s career, presented here is a never before seen portrait of an artist whose own work he has described as “art that’s political, not political art.”

The exhibition also includes works and archive photographs made in the 1970s when Boshier lived in the Welsh village of Llangadfan.

Taking Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel painting of the same name as a starting point and reference,The Last Judgement by S Mark Gubb includes a range of new and existing sculptural works exhibited as an installation.

The exhibition builds on Gubb’s long-standing use of popular culture and history in his work, along with his interest in historical paranoias, created by things such as The Cold War, and in our ability as individuals to influence the world around us, for better or for worse. As part of his research for The Last Judgement, Gubb revisited classic works from art history such as Goya’s “Black Paintings,” key works by Hieronymous Bosch and works by the acclaimed Welsh artist, Edgar Herbert Thomas, the latter a great-great uncle by marriage.

To accompany the season a combined catalogue, funded by the University of Worcester, will be produced containing a new essay by Jonathan Griffin.

Derek Boshier’s exhibition is thanks to generous support of Colwinston Charitable Trust and the assistance of Gazelli Art House, London. S Mark Gubb’s exhibition is supported by the Arts Council of Wales

Artist Talk | Stefanos Tsivopoulos and Alfredo Cramerotti

October 04, 2011 6:30pm

Please join us on October 4th at 6:30pm for a discussion with Stefanos Tsivopoulos and Alfredo Cramerotti in connection with the current exhibition Stefanos Tsivopoulos: Borrowed Knowldege.

Borrowed Knowledge is a show in two parts: The Blind Image and The Public Library of Borrowed Knowledge. The show takes as its starting point an investigation into the construction of visual history and its relation to images and history’s claim to truth through two multifaceted works. The Blind Image  brings together the film Amnesialand (2010), the artist’s most recent film Blind Image, a series of photos and display of books. The Public Library of Borrowed Knowledge will attempt to open up a participatory dialogue relating to the idea of knowledge production and cultural translation, initiating a collective working process for subsequent presentations.

Alfredo Cramerotti (1967) is a writer, curator and artist based in the UK. His cultural practice explores the relationship between reality and representation across a variety of media and collaborations such as TV, radio, publishing, internet, media festivals, writing and exhibition curating.
