Context ideas; What is this exhibition about?

Amateur protests- studio screaming.


I am very confused about what my practice is about. The degree show exhibition is my chance to expose my thoughts and concerns into a bigger audience and to prove that my art is something important.

This year has been extremely pressing in terms of research, I almost feel that I lost all of my spontaneous creativity and I can no longer make something just because I feel like it. Everything needs to be researched, have a context and prove a point.

Which is something that I also fail to do a the end?

I have a tittle in this post that could possibly be my exhibition title.

By amateur protests, I mean that the context of my work is there at the end of my tong ready to scream out, but still, my creations are kind of shallow through my eyes.

I want to create protests and comment on political issues that I think of all day, make art for my culture and the new cultures I live in. I want to make it fun, use sarcasm and humor but still, my creations are not smart enough.

This exhibition is about me learning how to express my self in order for people to understand me and my concepts. I don’t know if it matters what the medium will be, as I call my self a painter but I don’t paint that much.

Jenny Holzer- Artist



About two years ago I visited her exhibition in the Modern Tate Gallery in London. I was very impressed by the display and confused at the same time. I had no idea what her work was about and I just enjoyed the nice colors and moving text.

Today I came up with her name again, she acts in the public and I find her installations astonishing.


Some of her earlier work is placed onto billboards in the USA.

Simple text, so smart and sarcastic.

So much to say on westernized societies.

Exhibition Ideas


Banksy at Bristol City Museum, 2009.

This was the title of my Dissertation Artefact that has actually influenced my practice a lot. This is how we live, in an over-accumulated society. My exhibition will be constituted by a lot of objects stacked and accumulated painted and destroyed and two big pictures black and white will stand clean and contrasting like advertisements that are the only visual materials that survive at the end, but they won’t be for consumerism nither for criticizing they will be for creating nostalgia.

Everything is fake.

My display will have a background like this and then my pictures on top.



This image gave me the idea that I could take pictures with my film from home and then treat them like they are in the streets. For example, spraypaint them on top or write a slogan like Banksy does.

What is interesting about Jeff Wall is his choices of exhibiting his work.

I am often trapped in the idea of being a Fine Artist and a painter. I find it difficult to express myself in different ways and mediums when people are about to criticise my work, even if I think they will be very interesting and innovative.

I was looking to Jeff Walls practice and I found especially interesting his exhibition in 1978 that he chose to exhibit his photographs more as installation works. He placed his enlarged photographs into backlit photo transparencies, therefore, creating a strong feeling of depth very similar to paintings. By creating a chaotic set up of destroyed objects but also maintaining untouched ones in obvious places Wall created a juxtaposition between chaos and perfection that was an outcome that occurred by his research of the relationship between destruction and cinema.
