Earlier this month we invited artist duo Walter & Zoniel to curate and host their first ever show for Formationism – a creative movement founded by the artist duo that holds up both Conceptual and Process art as equally important amidst the current artistic climate. Formationism sets out to provide a “sounding board and support system for the development of their (artists) ideas and their practice, which comes from a non-commercial entity within the art world.” Walter & Zoniel have recently been involved with huge publicly engaged projects globally such as a Salt-Print workshop at Tate Britain, site-specific installations in Miami and Liverpool, and were nominated for the 2014 Paul Huf prize in Amsterdam.
For the inaugural show at Cob Gallery, titled As the Cosmos Unfolds, Walter & Zoniel curated a show of artists that maintain the aforementioned Formationist principles including: Millie Brown, Victoria Fornieles, Lina Iris Viktor, Craig Lawrence, Kate Heath and the artist duo themselves. On the opening night Millie Brown, who became notorious for performing with Lady Gaga onstage, flew in from Los Angeles to produce another one of her infamous live vomiting performances to create her final work for the show.
The exhibition has been a great success thus far and there will now be a closing party on 1st December to celebrate that will also feature a talk with Walter & Zoniel.
