‘In conversation with Clare’ – Grey Area Gallery Brighton [UK]

in-conversation-with-clare-karin-van-pinxteren

 

An installation about the small movements of trust and the strange intimacy of a digital conversation between strangers.

Six pairs of sentences – all twelve chronological composed – between an artist and a curator out of a mail conversation over a year about an exhibition. They didn’t meet until the opening.

 

curator: Clare Sheppeard

artist: Karin van Pinxteren
