The Independent Artist Fair provides a platform that puts artists rather than the market at the forefront, showing at the same time as Frieze Art Fair and The Other Art Fair, it represents a different approach, artist-led and premised on quality and concept. Showcasing the works of fifty contemporary artists from across the world, including Europe, America, Asia and the Middle East. Selected from over three hundred submissions in five weeks, the works include innovative sculpture, painting, photography, video, installation and performance .
Curated by James Elphick .
A unique and colourful collection of 60 surreal ,controversial ,provocative international artists .
My personal contribution to this exhibition was an interactive performance called `Maquina de Ideas` ( Idea Machine) .Based on a question I was asked `What is art ?`
Special thanks to my friend Vita for her support .
A street art project was started by Italian/Czech couple Alessandra Svatek and Artur Magrot in Cesky Krumlov .The idea behind the project is to use abandoned outdoor display cases to show works by both famous and lesser-known artists .These boxes were widely used in communist Czechoslovakia for propagandist purposes .
The idea caught fire and spread to other places .So far over 700 artists presented their artwork at the gallery .
I participated on two occasions .The opening night normally takes place each Thursday evening . It was bit of experience . You`re in the middle of nowhere and then people start emerging from darkness with wine glasses and big smiles .
The other time was at Cesky Krumlov .It was Sunday ,11pm ,rainy but about 30 people turned up . Surprise .
Because of the physical limitation of the notice board I used my van (which features my photography) as additional display space .After that I presented my films and performances .
