The Communication Group plc managed the PR for Pauline Amos’ unique work created for Stolen Space gallery London. The internationally acclaimed artist performed ‘live’ in the gallery over 5 days to work on a new painting, 40 feet by 12 feet. The gallery premiered a ‘live’ art performance with music by Pauline Amos as part of her new exhibition ‘Pity The Meat’ 15 – 24 August 2017.
Pauline Amos is a passionate and creative performance and painting artist, who has pioneered a unique style of work, combining it with live performance and music to develop the thinking of artists Kandinsky and Schoenberg famously extolled the harmony between art and music in the last century. The music for the performance is that of Paz Caplin with whom Amos has collaborated since 1999.
This is the first time in 14 years that Amos has presented a ‘durational’ performance in a gallery, the previous being in Rome at the Opera Paese gallery producing her renowned Opera Paese painting. Amos launched her first exhibition in London 2005, showing the Opera Paese painting with a price tag of £1.3m.
The Amos performance is a multi-sensory experience of theatre, sound and painting, there are no rules, formula or rehearsal and the work is improvised, spontaneous and responding to the environment and circumstances. With a unique style of ‘working in the moment’, she places herself within the painting and becomes part of it. The exhibition will create a surrealist ‘graffiti ambience’, with Amos’ bold works with street art aesthetic, combined with her ‘Carcass Canvasses’, large oil paintings hung from the ceiling on meat hooks.
