The pressure of production and self-p®esentation is foregrounded in a new body of work by Matthew Richardson (b. 1985, Warrington, based in Glasgow).
At this particular time, around Frieze and the other shows in London, I'll be making an exhibition at SPACE that might chime with the autumnal melancholy. With scepticism, my own logic and fairly minimal means, I've constructed an installation consisting of re-purposed and industrially produced works. A Snapshot of Me, now, October 2012.
Self-p®esentation or Self-p®esentation in Specialist Packaging is Matthew Richardson's first institutional solo exhibition in London. He gained his BA in Fine Art from The Slade School of Fine Art, London (2009) and his MFA in Fine Art from The Glasgow School of Art (2012). Recent exhibitions include THAT IS THE DAWN, Galerie Gregor Staiger, Zurich, We Love You, Limoncello, London, Go Deep or Go Home..., a group show curated by the Hut Project, ASC Studios, London, (all 2012). A two-person exhibition with Timothy Davies is forthcoming at Limoncello, London, (2013).
