with works by Jools Rothblatt and a reading by Anne Schmidt's Novel MED
ABSENCE OF ATTITUDE
11 November 2022 - 17 February 2023
Absence of Attitude brings together Lucia Stamati’s series of selected works from a collection of over 300 pieces, produced over the past three years and paintings by Jools Rothblatt.
Drawing from advertising, fashion and popcultural imagery screenshotted from instagram, the visual content wanders around spotting and tracing through Lucia Stamati’s autobiographical filters, memories and perception of her everyday routin in North Kensington London- a so called psychogeography of the mind.
Her works are produced in a stream of consciousness and combine Stamati’s highend art education with the fact of visiting art therapy over a year and her wild life on the margins of society in the instiutionalised system.
They hang similar to laundry between houses on a cloths line jumping straight out of the postcapitalist washing machine, coming from social media and going back to the streets.
The pieces work through stereotypes of womenhood like the pigeon lady or the mermaid. We see several protagonists living their different lives. It’s a patchwork of times and sceneries.
‘My paintings are all attitudes and guts’ Jools tells me and I am wondering if they can ever be absent or get lost.
