About

Eden Kötting: Forgotten the Queen
Level 1, Granada Foundation Gallery

The paintings and collages in this exhibition were inspired by the Edith Walks project which itself was inspired by the life of Edith Swan Neck. Inspired visionary and hand-fast maiden to the King Harold of 1066 as well as mother to six of his children. Like so many women both then and now, she was dismissively overlooked by the male gate-keepers of the historical all and sundry.

Eden Kötting was born in 1988 with Joubert Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. She grew up in London and developed a keen interest in drawing and painting. In 1996 she appeared in her father’s experimental feature film Gallivant along with her great grandmother Gladys.

Anonymous Bosch: Edith Pinholes
Level 2, Granada Foundation Gallery

The work fulfills the important post-medieval role of witness/chronicler to Andrew Kötting’s troubadour band on their long march in the spectral footsteps of King Harold, from one grave in Waltham Abbey via another in Battle to a sculpture at St Leonards-on-Sea (during production of Kötting’s latest film-essay, Edith Walks).

“Anonymous Bosch catches the stoic comedy of the raggle-taggle band of sleepwalkers, musicians, poets and performers in their heroic absurdity. He is one of the few artists capable of recording the volatile trajectory of myth-making and unreliable memory.” – Iain Sinclair
