"MMCHD: Adventurous Works"
2007-01-08 until 2007-01-01
Chelsea Library
London, , UK United Kingdom

Chelsea Library supports and encourages local artists to display their work to a wide audience. Henry W.Targowski, Christian Legnar, Manuela de Silva, and Marjan Zahed Kindersley will be exhibiting their adventurous work at the Chelsea Library 8th Jan until 13th Jan 2007. The exhibition is entitled: "MMCHD". Marjan Zahed Kindersley has been a Premiere Portfolio Member at absolutearts.com since 2003.

French/Portuguese photographer, Manuela de Silva's work penetrates to the core of alienation, loneliness and deep human emotion. Her intense and emotional work, wrought from her own personal feelings and experience - living and working in London - create a myriad of similar associations for her viewers. 'I hope that viewers will recognize aspects of themselves in my subjects and be able to reflect on the nature of contemporary city life,' she says.

The subjects of this unique view of the city and contemporary city life draw on the complexities of love. 'I want to show how individuals interact with each other, and I hope that my work conveys the conflicting forces of fear and desire in trying to find love and companionship.'

This subtle collection succeeds in capturing the power of emotion both in the portrayal of the lone character and by embalming inanimate things with human emotion. They radiate a rare subtlety of emotion and a haunting atmosphere hovering between fear and desire.

Christian Legnar is redefining the term Public Artist in as much as he not only works on ideas for public spaces, but he works on them publicly, actively inviting the audience to partake in the creation. Consequentially for Chelsea Library he will not be exhibiting a finished piece, but the process of creating one, so he will be working on a sculpture during the duration of the exhibition. The core of the idea for this work is a tongue-in-cheek view at the secret life of IKEA furniture. It is about trying to find answers for questions noone was ever interested in asking, like what are Poang, the chair and Trissa the CD-rack up to together, when noone is watching? How do they fit together? Are they getting along fine, or will they be clashing? The material basis for the pieces are 2 or more different IKEA flatpack furnitures, that will be assembled together to form a new piece of work. The image attached show the first sculpture resulting from this idea. Just as important, the phases of creation have been documented in over 150 photographs, that formed the basis of a hilarious stopframe animation, that will be on display as well.

Henry W.Targowski, experiments with concrete poetry, often cheeky, uses text, geometry,visual language and syntax, making full communicative use of perspective footnotes, drawing on diverse disciplines such as music, but above all always with a sense of humour. Henry spends the rest of his time, being a confusing muse.

Marjan Zahed-Kindersley. Inspired by the French saying `show me your object of desire and I will show you who you are`, she has been travelling with her bra around the world, making social commentary, at times only slightly introverted, at other times teaming up with other bras, always juxtaposing equilibrium within photographic syntax, pushing boundaries quietly, but hoping to provoke a smile and multi~layered pleasure. Her other obsessions at the moment are waterhydrants and pipes.
