Jealous Gallery presents…
Mike Marcus and Amie Slavin
(06/11/2008 to 16/11/2008)
Newly opened in Crouch End, Jealous Gallery is hosting a two-week installation ‘Isolitude’ by artists Mike Marcus and Amie Slavin. Mike Marcus is a street artist and photographer who currently works in London and Tel Aviv, Amie Slavin is a sound artist currently involved in the Liverpool Biennial project. Work installed in the gallery coincides with paste-ups by Mike Marcus in the local area of the gallery, and in central London, Paris and New York. Amie Slavin’s intriguing soundscape of late night revelers and ambient urban background noise interacts with Marcus’s over life-size paste up figures to transform the space into an unsettling and disorientating exploration into the sociology and psychology of modern urban life.
A small edition of 35 signed 6 colour screenprints will be released to coincide with the exhibition. To pre-order please contact the gallery (details below). Please note that this is the first official exhibition of Mike Marcus’s street work in London. Any other work shown is unsanctioned and displayed without permission of the artist.
The show will run 06/11/2008 to 16/11/2008, open 10am – 6pm, closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, entrance is free. Please feel free to contact Ellie Phillips on firstname.lastname@example.org.
