Veronica Tonge has forwarded information of another exhibition taking place here in the UK for the whole of August that may be of interest to many of you.
This a shared exhibition between Veronica and printmaker/ photographer- Jenny Fairweather. The flyer above shows a detail of one of Jenny's photos of Veronica's 1930s Tri-ang DH 10. She has a group of these in the exhibition which are just stunning. Veronica is showing 3 doll's house based works:
Bohemia:Abandoned House is set in a scratch built mid 20th Century house which had an arts and crafts makeover around the 1990s.
The House with the Blind Window is a response to a 1950s crime mystery story for children sited in an ELC Georgian mansion.
The Pub Witnesses is a commemoration of the first ever aeroplane bombing of civillians during the First World War in Folkestone, set in a Sid Cook corner shop/pub.
Veronica is also showing Alone, a contemplation on loss staged in a room box of a country kitchen, and an installation that was put together inside a wine box called Curator's Office & Way Out which comments on the current museum practice of getting rid of experts in museums and replacing them with managers.
FASCINATING STUFF! I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED NOT TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET TO VERONICA'S LAST EXHIBITION DURING JULY - AS MY MONTH DID NOT RUN QUITE AS PLANNED! HOWEVER, IF I CAN, I WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE TO GET TO THIS ONE. IF ANY OF YOU READING THIS LIVE NEARBY OR WILL BE IN THE MAIDSTONE AREA DURING AUGUST, DO POP IN AND TAKE A LOOK....AND LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.
