• Suit 1, Suit 2 in 'Ideas in Things'

Cruz, Juan, 2014, Show, Exhibition or Event, Suit 1, Suit 2 in 'Ideas in Things'

Abstract or Description:

Participation in an exhibition 'Ideas in Things' in Maria Stenfors Gallery, London, curated by Dean Hughes and including the artists David Blackaller, Juan Cruz, Alan Currall and Siân Robinson Davies.

The two works exhibited, Suit 1 and Suit 2, refer to questions of process, the tradition of the monochrome and attempt to engage with questions about different kinds of identity related labour. In each case the work was made by taking apart business suits, here understood and symbols of professional and bureaucratised life, and then sewing them back together into a contiguous fabric which when stretched over a stretcher became surrogate monochrome paintings.
'Suit 1': recycled fabric on stretcher 171 x 171 x 3 cm; 'Suit 2': recycled fabric on stretcher 152 x 152 x 3 cm.
