Over a period of twenty years of organising exhibitions, Laure Genillard has often indulged in installation and project-based art and so presented here are works by a group of artists with whom she has had a close and lasting affinity with. Laure Genillard Gallery has long been a vital platform for key contemporary artists since its start in Foley Street, London 1988, through to its move to Clerkenwell Road and to Hanway Street, W1 in 2007. There is a rich history here that continues to resonate, and through this Laure has come to curate an exhibition at CHELSEA space, that she states, “Looks at the relevance between forms and ideas in an age of project making”. We look at what remains as an art object in the artist’s head once the project or the installation has finished and exists no longer. What kind of object is left to present for posterity? The works stem from an initial first idea and what is displayed here is the residual essence of the concept.Whether the making is large, like a site-specific installation or small, such as a walk in the street, Laure questions what final form does the art object take? What is left at the end to commemorate the event or help provide a legacy for the work?
The range is wide: artefacts (Maurizio Cattelan), video (Stephen Willats), happenings (Peter Wuethrich), installation (Gary Woodley), travel art (David Tremlett, Brian O’Connell, Mathew Harrison), art in transit (Philomene Pirecki), daily gestures (Dean Hughes), communication (Padraig Timoney), distillery (Fred Pradeau), with many overlaps between.
