Marlborough Contemporary presents March, a solo exhibition of new works by UK artist Laurence Kavanagh.


Through a complex combination of different media such as sculpture, collage and photo-montage, the artist has engaged with the cinematic as a privileged ground of investigation for his practice.


For March, Kavanagh has worked in situ at the prestigious Curzon Mayfair cinema, taking casts from architectural details and rubbings of surfaces of the building, reworking them in the studio. Traces of the tiles covering the exterior of Curzon and casts from the cinema halls’ mirrors have been employed in this new body of works. By collecting these traces, Kavanagh is taking a lasting memory and impression of the building. Rather than focusing on the projected images on its surface, the artist explores the symbols and the signs implied in the material aspect of cinema, looking at how films speak to the viewer once characters, scenery and montage have been removed


Following from his first exhibition with the gallery in 2014, this new body of work further develops Kavanagh’s ongoing Calendar Series, which will eventually consist of twelve interrelated sets of works, to represent each month of the Gregorian calendar.
