AboutLIMBO is pleased to present a new exhibition by London-based artist Philomene Pirecki.
Pirecki works across painting, photography, drawing, projected image, sculpture and language. She is interested in attempts to materialise mutable experience of time and memory, and the multiple registers and perceptions of them.
She often moves between originals and copies, re-photographing her own work to generate new and different iterations within the studio and the exhibition space, physically or conceptually referencing or re-using existing works, in part as a way to consider how they might adapt and respond to the new conditions and time that they are in.
Pirecki's practice addresses degrees of proximity; how images act as an analogue for memory, unpredictably accumulating, persisting, mutating or disappearing. The porous edges between her various works that get returned to, reconfigured and used as an ongoing working material over time, allow for complexity and contradiction rather than attempting to present absolutes.
Philomene Pirecki is an artist based in London. Group exhibitions in 2014 include The Influence of Furniture on Love, Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge; Ends Again, Supplement, London; In the Wake, Truth and Consequences, Geneva; Matter and Memory, Alison Jacques, London; and solo exhibitions Image Persistence, Supplement, London; Frame, Fold, Fracture, Green on Red gallery, Dublin; both 2013.
Future shows include a two-person show with Jamie Shovlin, Unosunove, Rome, Oct-Nov; Collecting Mode, Neumeister Bar Am, Berlin; Panda Sex, (cur. Tom Morton) State of Concept, Athens; both Nov-Dec 2014. Pirecki was shortlisted for the Max Mara Art Prize for Women in 2013.
