BLACK AND BLUE CATALOGUE LAUNCH
text by IAN HUNT.
Following the conversation with IAN HUNT, Critical Studies coordinator and lecturer at Goldsmiths College, London, New Art Projects would like to invite you to the launch event for the resulting catalogue, and to close the exhibition with a few drinks.
‘For me the more important thing was making them black in colour, a black that seems to absorb light. I think these larger figures are more disturbing, or at least uncertain, than the smaller ones. With the smaller camouflaged ones in the curtain, you don’t know if they are hiding so they will not be eaten, or waiting to pounce, or are they friends: but then of course they are all friends, because they are teddies.’
