About

Kira Freije’s exhibtion at Recent Activity features a rocket, a machine and a human relationship. The works are constructed from metal; cast, bent, forced and welded.

The sculptures are less interested in being artworks, instead occupying a space that is cinematic and suggestive. Assertions of surreal, but human situations. They are jealous and violent and joyful and sad. Sitting between times; both of this world and other worldly.

The sculptures represent the human capacity to love and to hate, asking whether it is possible to be a good or a bad person. By making physical that which is inherently closeted, these works reveal themselves to be guilt-ridden, anxiety-driven, sometimes-happy contradictions. In other words, just the same as me and you and them.

Kira Freije (b. 1985, London, lives and works in London) received her BFA from the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, University of Oxford in 2011, and a postgraduate diploma from Royal Academy Schools in 2016. Her work has recently been included in exhibitions at Carl Freedman, Kinman, Sara Zanin (Rome) and Occidental Temporary in Paris (solo presentation).

Exhibition runs 22 April – 27 May
