Andre Guedes – Open Studio & Exhibition Tour : 25 – 26 March

Artists André Guedes (Portugal) and Umesh Kumar (India) open their studios to the public to develop a dialogue with audiences on their work in progress.
On Friday, to coincide with the Last Fridays programme of SLAM, Gasworks curator, Robert Leckie, will lead a tour of the current exhibition Foreword to Guns for Banta. This is the first solo show in the UK by Paris-based artist Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc, exhibiting work produced during his residency at Gasworks.

About the Open Studios artists:

André Guedes (Portugal)

During his residency, André Guedes has been researching the working classes’ restricted access to culture in the UK, during and after the industrial revolution. This research will lead up to a performance piece, to be premièred at Gasworks in May.

For the open studios, which comes mid way through his 6 month residency, Guedes will display work from an ongoing project entitled Odd and Even Pages from the Wonders of the 20th century. By selecting and isolating images from the book: Wonders of the 20th Century, Guedes will create several diptychs, examining how the images on opposing pages can relate to each other and generate new narratives.

Umesh Kumar (India)

Umesh Kumar has spent much of the last months researching conceptual British art from the last decade, as well as looking at the Arte Povera movement and its enduring influence in contemporary practice. He has also continued to explore a long-standing preoccupation with themes of displacements, conflicts and divides, in relation to his homeland.

For the open studios, Umesh will be displaying a set of works drawn from his research, using basic materials alongside every day objects and photographic elements. These works will also address some of his formal concerns including his interest in materiality and – in his words – the idea of ‘impoverished materials’.
