"Email Art"
2002-08-12 until 2002-09-16
Centre of Attention
London, , UK United Kingdom

The Centre of Attention presents Email Art, a contemporary art electronic exhibition starting August 12 to September 16, 2002. Every Monday for 6 weeks, subscribers receive an e-mail from a different artist, including Jenny Holzer, Ken Friedman, Sylvie Fleury, Simon Poulter and Simon Faithfull. The 6th artist will be the best e-mail contribution received within the first 5 weeks from amongst the exhibition subscribers.

Jenny Holzer has shown worldwide in prominent institutions and major spaces such as the Guggenheim museum (New York, Bilbao), the American Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, the ICA in London or the Pompidou Centre on Paris. The main focus of her work has been the investigation of means to disseminate her ideas within public space. In 1977, she created her first all-text works, the Truisms series, printing them on paper, which she pasted up anonymously around the city. Since then, she has been working in the street and in public buildings, using media that would enable her work to blend in the landscape, from lcd displays to posters and stickers (applied to such urban elements as telephone booths or parking meters).

Ken Friedman is a well-known artist and art theorist. Since the l960s, he has been associated with Fluxus, the international forum of experimental art, architecture, design, and music. His work can be seen in many Fluxus collections including at the Tate Modern. As an artist since 1966, a director of Fluxus West for a decade, and the editor of „The Fluxus Reader‰, Ken has written extensively about issues such as Mail Art. He is today a Professor of strategy at the Norwegian School of Management in Oslo.

Sylvie Fleury lives and works in Geneva, Switzerland. Hers is one of the defining voices which have emerged from Europe in the past decade. Since 1990, her work draws direct inspiration from pop culture, like fashion or music, but her choice of materials jumps with the frequency of passing fads between modes as varied as painting, video, sculpture, and performance. "I am interested in what's in the air at the moment when I am working ... what you can capture and what can come out of it and how much you can control it."

Simon Poulter has established a national profile working across digital media, installation and live art. Poulter's work is often iconoclastic, irreverent and probing in nature; working simultaneously on and off-line. Poulter's work includes 'UK Ltd'

Simon Faithfull is the co-founder of e-2, a web-based project funded by the Arts Council to commission new art works for the Internet. Simon Faithfull has recently had a solo show at Artsway, Hampshire. Past exhibitions include ŒTemporary Accommodation‚, Whitechapel Gallery as well as spaces including Parkers Box in New York and the Chisenhale Gallery in London.
