The Jester of Performance: A Conversation with Caz Egelie

Caz Egelie is featured in Open Space’s exhibition Forum: Bread and Games at the Ugly Duck in Bermondsey. The Dutch artist transcends the boundaries between viewer and space through his performance, video, sculpture, and animation. I had a conversation with the artist on his upcoming performance this Saturday, February 29th from 5-6pm. This will be the artist’s first performance in London. Progress photo from Call Me Hank Herron (2017) SOPHIA BOOSALIS: Tell me about your visual practice and some background about you? CAZ EGELIE: I first went to college for art education and afterwards, I did a second bachelor’s in fine art at HKU University of the Arts in Utrecht. I specialised in sculpture a

Doodling on Museum Walls

1. The Artist Who Doodles on a Museum Wall On a recent trip to Vienna, I visited an exhibition focused on contemporary drawing at the Albertina Museum. Titled A Passion for Drawing (11 October 2019 – 26 January 2020), the exhibition show highlighted the Guerlain Collection from the Centre Pompidou Paris, featuring works by contemporary artists who explore the diverse uses of the medium of drawing. Amongst the 20 artists featured in the exhibition, one artist’s work is easy to be missed accidentally. It was not until I was about to exit the room that I noticed the tiny wall label next to the entrance: Wall text for Nedko Solakov’s Albertinadoodles, 2019 (Photo: Ellen Wang) With the determinat

Gazelli Art House's 9th St. Club

An exhibition seeking to undo the stereotype of abstract expressionists as 'macho' men Resisting the underestimation of women in the movement commonly termed ‘Abstract Expressionism’, the 9th St Club exhibition at Gazelli Art House (January 17, 2020 - February 23, 2020) reinterprets the original 1951 exhibition Ninth Street Show by choosing to exhibit the works of female artists alone. The shocking proportion of men to women artists in the 1951 exhibition - 70 male artists in comparison to a mere 11 female artists - contributed to the formation of the movement’s ‘ultra-macho’ image. Seeking to dismantle the mainstream interpretation of the abstract expressionist movement as hyper-masculine,

The Stillness of Copland: The Dance of the City

Illustration by Vitoria Mendes When composer Aaron Copland is still, he is deadly still. One daren’t move when in the presence of such stillness. And yet, within seconds, you feel like you can dance. This is a particularly welcome sensation given that the city doesn’t stop dancing. Today, that dance is often a vulgar one of demolition, gentrification, alienation and corporate dominance. Copland is only worth listening to in the city when nobody is around. This makes listening to him at night essential. I would like to apologise to those who are unable to take such night travels. The absence of people on the street is often disturbing and in some cases, this absence poses a threat. Spontaneit

Gettin' There: Chapter Four

Gettin' Dressed to Get There Illustration by Izzy White It is generally agreed upon that there is a part of performance in social interactions. How could there not be one ? Other than the fact that social interactions can be a whole range of things going from boring to intimidating and that we fight to hide it, I’m sure my professors are glad that I don’t behave in seminars as I do at the pub. Or at least they should be. ​ The acts that one puts up in social realms vary from one person to another and so do the tools they rely on. I grew up around strong, vocal women who loved and love clothes, a love which they easily professed. Although I now realise that it is their intinsic class and eleg

Is an Artistic Education Essential?

Illustration by Himarni Brownsword You probably wouldn’t win much money betting on whether this article was written by a Courtauld student. But this question, is an artistic education, or an art historical education essential, fascinates me. I grew up in an environment where knowledge was always valued, curiosity always encouraged. Growing up, however, there was a stigma I felt, towards those who did not enter the world of ‘STEM’- the strong, glistening, money-making degrees of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths. Instead, I chose a degree in history of art- a soft, non-abrasive, I-look-at-pretty-pictures option. I have learnt over time that what I perceived was every word of a lie.

The Ivory Tower vs. the Brutalist Tower

Those creating policy are still so far removed from what life is like on a council estate, what does this mean for the people that live there? Illustration by Rebecca Marks Former Chair of the Building Better Building Beautiful Commission, renowned and controversial conservative thinker Roger Scruton died earlier this month. Under Scruton’s command, the Commission had aimed to build new housing in a ‘traditional’ manner, no more modernist concrete brutalist blocks, giving way to cornices and volutes for a better way of living. If those in power really do want council estates to resemble a reprised version of the Georgian square, where does the future lie for neglected modernist housing block

Little Women: Is another film adaptation really necessary?

May Alcott, Fronstpiece Illustration from Part 2 of Little Women, (image: Houghton Library, Harvard University) Little Women was first published 150 years ago. It was first translated to screen 103 years ago as a silent film. Since then it has been made into multiple feature films and countless BBC dramas. Through these adaptations the tale of the four sisters: Jo, Amy, Beth and Meg March have been passed down to multiple generations. So, what could possibly make Greta Gerwig’s new film special? Or, might we even wonder, necessary? Well, if Jo March’s novel is ‘For Beth,’ Greta Gerwig’s film is for Amy. Oh, and for Timothee Chalamet (19th century poet shirts suit him very nicely.) In this re

An Interview with Nikita Pozdnyakov, Contemporary Artist

"Omsk is a dark place" This interview was conducted in collaboration with Ryba Art. Nikita's work will be shown at the Fitzrovia Gallery from the 5th to the 25th of February.

NIKITA: Omsk is a dark place, but people are trying to resist. We have always been a rebellious city. My art reflects things everyone sees outside on their way to work, every day. If I feel empty and uninspired, I just get out on the street, walk around a little and come back with new material. THEA: Why did you
