Joseph Aina
x Cuperior Collection Art Residency

From the 29th August til the 10th September 2022 -
Solo show  PRIOR Art Space Berlin

Joseph Aina (b. 1996) is a Nigerian-British Artist living and working in both London and Windsor. He graduated from the Royal College of Art, upon the receipt of the Royal College of Art Studentship.

Joseph’s work investigates human nature and the way in which it is interwoven into the fabric of society. With a specific interest in contemporary notions of identity and its place within popular culture. He identifies symbols within the streets and media as methods of communication between the social and the individual. By creating an alphabet from these symbols, he constructs visual poems that romantically illustrate the ills of society. Whilst at the RCA he has focused closely on analysing the presentation of black culture within the western world. His recent mask paintings pick up on many of the ideas raised by Frantz Fanon surrounding the loss of ‘Blackness’ and identity crisis.

KRISTY M CHAN
x Del Arco Collection Art Residency

From 10th February to 10th May 2022 -
Solo show 29th April in PRIOR Art Space Berlin

Born in Hong Kong, 1997 (living and working in London, United Kingdom) Chan’s hologram-like work explores notions of humour and displacement. Dense with information and odd depictions of her environment, the work reflects on the artist's upbringing in Hong Kong and the experience of migration. It explores the act of locating “home” and the associated relationship with its cultural geographies. Each work is the direct result of the process of its own making, perhaps a parallax of reality through irrational conversion, and an intentional analysis of Chan’s identity, distracted by paint.

Chan describes these abstracted spaces as “stolen realities''. Her work acts as a visual archive of the mundanity of everyday life where giddy interactions and internal jokes are re-territorialised in a new space, allowing new perspectives. These “stolen realities” also ponder on the notion of the present and of the minute events of her everyday life, encouraging an appreciative perspective towards the mundane.

CRAIG CAMERON MACKINTOSH
x Cuperior Collection Art Residency

From 2nd April to the 15th June 2022 -
Solo show the 11th June in PRIOR Art Space Berlin

Taking visual cues and references from photography, Craig Cameron – Mackintosh explores the cinematic effects of light and shade reworking the traditional silhouette motif. Cameron – Mackintosh pushes the two extremes that trick the eye to create different ways of seeing the same things. In a reversal of the typical order of artistic practise, his large, highly rendered silhouette paintings inform his smaller, looser works.

 

“What light reveals on the one plane, it equally masks and distorts on the opposite. When the subject is backlit, the effect is almost like a photo negative – details are removed, rendering age, facial features and even skin colour of the subjects ambiguous. With a quick setting adjustment, the subject is overexposed and blown out with soft focus. I enjoy this duality of the same scene. These near life-size figures stare out into an unknown landscape, with the graduated blue canvases as their windows. ” Craig Cameron-Mackintosh Craig Cameron-Mackintosh grew up in White River, Mpumalanga an environment which inspired many great South African artists including Keith Alexander and Esias Bosch. Showing a prodigious talent for drawing from an early age and despite not having studied fine art he has drawn influence from fellow South African artists. Cameron – Mackintosh moved to Cape Town in 2007 to study filmmaking at AFDA which has deeply influenced his artistic career; not only lending a sense of cinema and story to his subject matter but also informing his technique. Craig Cameron – Mackintosh is the winner of the 2019 Sanlam Portrait Award.

Pires’s practice works to draw out the utilitarian histories of mass-production and exploitation embedded in these items, as well as to explore questions about stereotypes and identity.

Pedro Pires was born in Luanda, Angola and currently lives and works between Lisbon and Luanda. Pires obtained a Masters Degree in Fine Arts from the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and was awarded the Fine Art Erasmus Scholarship from the University of Athens.

This residency is a result of the Cuperior Collection award during the Biso Biennale biso biennale in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Lisbon-Ouagadougou-Berlin.
