FOLD Gallery | London

Originally run as a crossover between a commercial gallery and a project space, FOLD Gallery | London specialised in producing group shows. This gave the opportunity for UK based and international artists, from emerging to mid-career practices, to be brought together within context. The principle goal behind the curated group exhibitions was to expand the reach of the gallery by constantly bringing in new audiences.

Re-located in Clerkenwell, FOLD Gallery continues to push its reach to new audiences. The gallery is now a commercial venture, where the focus still remains on strongly themed group shows, but the programme is now punctuated and enhanced with significant solo presentations. FOLD strives to present all of the artists work within context, to give the viewer the best opportunity to gain understanding of the intentions of the artist, whilst viewing the work displayed to the highest possible standards.

This exhibition of paintings considers material as a cue for perceiving the world in an age of extreme image saturation. The emphasis on material over image is a counterpoint to the tyranny of the screen that realigns the visceral properties of matter as new potent narrative ‘actants’ for the 21st century.

The term ‘materiality’ has been banded around a lot recently, infiltrating contemporary discourse perhaps in recognition and acknowledgement of an increasingly virtual experience of the world, one in which the act of looking has itself been hijacked by the proliferation of highly co-modified imagery. In this scenario the once primary physical world becomes the shadow, other, and its simulacra experienced through the screen-world takes its place in a reversal of conventional oppositions of material-immaterial, physical-metaphysical, looking/n...

Forthcoming Exhibitions

FOLD Gallery | London is pleased to announce the continuation of our programme of solo shows. These consist of two solo shows that run simultaneously, presenting two separate bodies of work within the same space. However, there is no major physical divide within the gallery to set them apart.

The intention is to present the viewer with a unique opportunity to form their own conclusions regarding the relationships between the individual shows. The hope is that the gallery, rather than intervening, is acting as a catalyst for these events to unfold.



THE DURATION OF THE SHARP HARD OUTLINE OF THINGS

VALÉRIE KOLAKIS

OPENING | FRIDAY 23RD MAY, 6 - 9 PM
SHOW | SATURDAY 24TH MAY – SATURDAY 28TH JUNE

In 1917 Thomas Edison invented and patented a single pour concrete house. Originally, planned as an alternative housing solution, Edison cast only one concrete house which, years later, was torn down to make way for a supermarket and a parking lot.

In her first solo show in London, Valérie Kolakis presents us with deconstructed architectural drawings, steel rods and concrete which all hint at an ‘un-built’ house. ... [ Read all ]

To tinker is to repair a thing through a manual interaction that is as close to play as work can get. An object is worried at, fiddled with, trimmed down or cobbled together, and in the end transformed to agree with an idea held in the tinkerer's head. The object is the fruit of a compromise between that ideal and the reality of things, fed by expediency and the pleasures of play.

Dominic Beattie's work emerges out of the most basic materials - scraps of plywood, sheets of stickers, marker pen and spray paint - through a process of improvisation and thinking on the spot. Ordinary objects beget compositional forms that nod to the classic modernism of Tatlin or Lissitzky. Perforated plastic becomes a cut price Bridget Riley; Ellsworth Kelly returns in a sliver of wood. Beattie's practice is, as with any tinkerer, born of a kind of looking: the world of things is a scrapyard of potential transcendence. The tinkering transforms. Look c... [ Read all ]
