Eve Liebe hanpicked the 3 of best artworks in show for a special preview.
The Purr Room, Gary Baseman
The “power of puur”, because their purr vibrations are in the 20 to 140 Hz range, they can have therapeutic effects. Baseman decided to share the healing power of his pet cat Blackie’s purr through an experiential art installation. A response to the chaos and noise of the world and daily news, Baseman asked attendees to pause and think about who they love unconditionally, what a hug feels like, and to draw a favourite pet.
Unmissable curated by Ben Moore
Unmissable is curated by Ben Moore, founded the Missing Tom Fund, an organization raising money in search of his older brother Tom, who suffers from mental health issues and went missing in 2003. High level of artistic talent portraits deeply emotional subject matter. The participating artists include Samira Addo, Charming Baker, Tony Barnes, Paul Benney, Ian Bruce, Ricardo Cinalli, Richard Colson, Amy Florence, Rebecca Fontaine Wolf, Nina Mae Fowler, Tim Gatenby, Carne Griffiths, Anna Kenneally, Ru Knox, Thomas Lumley, Mark Metcalfe, Chris Moon, David Partner, Amy Shuckburgh, Will Teather and Nicholas Todhunter.
The Sorry Stall, Rebecca Mason
We are all wrong sometimes! The artist Rebecca Mason creates the Sorry Stall, where visitors to the fair can make apologies for things they regret. A selection will be displayed on the stand, posted on social media and some of the worst will form a new background to Rebecca’s neon artworks. The artwork encourages everyone to share their apologies with the person to whom they are directed to make it count as much as possible. We live in a time where there is said to be “an epidemic of infallibility” This is amplified via social media, where our daily comments and errors are there for many to see, share and judge. We fear to look weak.
