Permanent site specific wall drawing at Lubomirov / Angus-Hughes. Unveiling Friday 13 November 2015.

About

Jokhova approaches her residency at the gallery, recalling the phrase “property is a British business” that has stuck in her mind from a film she has recently watched but cannot remember. Perhaps the film is irrelevant, but the phrase definitely is key, property is a British business. Few other cultures have a history where flipping property has historically been a profitable and commonly practised business. The site-specific wall drawing at Lubomirov / Angus-Hughes explores the physical and cultural layers of construction. 

Considering the endless chain of quick and cost-effective refurbishments that properties undergo over the years manifesting in a mille-feuille of paint layers in relationship to the layers of cultural history that inform the use of specific materials, patterns and objects in bathrooms, the work will draws references from and subverts the historic use of marble, patterned floors, ideas of layering and templating designs.

Using a paired down colour palette of greys with occasional bursts bright colour, a string of geometric shapes and lines is construed, spanning from walls onto ceilings, optically distorting the twisting rectangular spaces.
