Gallery Talk: Sophy Rickett & Martin Caiger-Smith at Camilla Grimaldi Gallery

Posted By Administration, Monday, March 10, 2014
Thursday, March 20, 2014
7:00 - 8:00pm
rsvp requested.

Sophy Rickett in conversation with Martin Caiger-Smith at Camilla Grimaldi Gallery is being held in conjunction with the artist's exhibition, Objects in the Field, on view through March 21, 2014.

Rickett's examines the legacy of some now obsolete astrophysical research conducted in the 1980s, and constructs or re-imagines a set of different narrative voices that are at times contradictory, or at odds with each other.  Rickett is interested in the process of de-accessioning and the advancement of obsolescence. She uses the project to explore ideas around how meaning and interpretation can be fluid and contestable. The project tests the border between collaboration and appropriation, and explores ways of blurring the boundaries between them.

Martin Caiger-Smith is head of the MA program Curating the Art Museum at the Courtland institute and is former had of exhibitions and acting director or the Hayward Gallery.

Going Solo: Camilla Grimaldi to become Solo Director

Posted By Blog User, Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Camilla Grimaldi is proud to announce that she will carry on the gallery's activity as sole director and owner. Formerly known as Brancolini Grimaldi, the gallery will now trade under the name Camilla Grimaldi and exhibit from an interim space at 25 Old Burlington Street, Mayfair. 


The gallery will present a specially curated programme of exhibitions, continuing to represent a broad range of international artists who share a ground-breaking and experimental approach to photography as a means of artistic expression.  The new space will launch with the following exhibitions: 


Sophy Rickett
Objects in the Field / 14 February - 21 March 2014


Martina Bacigalupo 

Gulu Real Art Studio 28 March - 25 April 2014



Sophy Rickett's most recent body of work, Objects in the Field, was made during her time as Artist Associate at the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge, and develops the artist's interest in the role of the camera as a mediator between people and the natural world, exploring how light and darkness define and articulate our relationship to space.  


Martina Bacigalupo's Gulu Real Art Studio will be her first exhibition in the UK. The show will present an edited selection of 6 x 4 inch prints that the artist found discarded at Obal Denis' studio in Gulu, Uganda. Bacigalupo's collection represents a typological cross-section of Gulu's society today - nurses, soldiers, farmers, teachers, businessmen, nuns, students, mothers and children - defined through poses, clothing and objects. Vivid and diverse, the images extend the tradition of African vernacular studio portraiture, at the same time creating completely unconventional portraits. What remains of the image, after the faces are cut out, heightens the viewer's attention to gesture, and it is through subtle details that other markers of identity reveal themselves.
