we need to not have a yahoo account.
I just tried to send a mail out about the next exhibition but yahoo won't let me insert any addresses. I'm going to Knock this evening so am totally hopeless.
If anyone feels like taking on the battle here is the text and i've sent it to everyone from a-d on our address list: (I had some of the words different sizes but it doesn't seem to be working on the bb)
Total Kunst Presents
A collaboration between Lindsay Grime and Rachel Maclean
Closing party 28th September
Two artists from different disciplines collaborate to create a cardboard
temple, at once gaudy and fleeting.
The project embraces ideas about gender, life, death and America's Next
Model, which have come about through this collaboration, presenting an amalgam
of different aesthetics, which combine to create an ambiguous, shifting identity.
The viewer is initially presented with a wealth of imagery, alluding in graphic style
to a shop window or a fashion illustration, and in decadence and detail to the
excess of a Baroque Cathedral.
However the content of the work constantly displaces this indulgent aesthetic,
with its rendering in cardboard and obvious flat pack
installment into the space suggesting something fleeting, cheap and easily
Both artists attend Edinburgh College of art, Lindsay Grime studying Illustration,
and Rachel Maclean studying Drawing and Painting.
Total Kunst is the visual arts division of the Forest Cafe, 3 Bristo Place, Edinburgh.
