Degree Art presents ‘Curtain Falls’, a solo show by Carolina Piteira (to 18/Sep)

Thursday, August 21st, 2014


Curtain Falls presents the culmination of Piteira’s series based on exploring the everyday lives of Queen Elizabeth II’s red guards. Piteira’s work follows the critical observations and focuses intimately on the relationship between our real identities and the masks we use to cover them. Piteira confronts the person behind the red royal uniforms and works to expose new levels of intensity, sexuality and honesty, stripping the guards of their stern façade, bringing to the forefront, the real lives of these guards along with their individuality, shedding the still and unresponsive daily routines of a life in the Queen’s Guard.

The exhibition will feature portraits and a short film, both of which emphasise the atmosphere of the works and the drama of their moments. The characters are straight-forward at first, but each is shrouded in an air of their own personality,­ which moves from emotional or humorous, to mysterious and seductive. The palette supports the atmospheric backgrounds, which keeps the drama of the moment, and in contrast, the characters saturate the eyes with an energy of colour.

Piteira says of this series, “I am interested in confronting the real side of a person which is hidden behind a mask. Most of us hide in an indirect sense, but that personality is hidden quite blatantly by the Queen’s Guard. The raw character hidden behind its veil, the person full with emotion or passion, sensuality or a strong energy is not easy to reach – especially as we live in a way where we constantly regulate our self-expression and appearance. Uncovering that real character behind the veil is exactly what I am trying to achieve with my work.”  (more…)

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

. presents ‘Post Digital?’ an exhibition which seeks to explore the intersection at which our physical and virtual realities collide. Post Digital? aims to question the processes of creating art in a digital age and crucially, its very definition. Post-Digital (also known as Post-Internet) is at the heart of numerous, contemporary discussions, articles, conferences, exhibitions and publications. These discourses are exposing the uncertainties, misunderstanding and riddles surrounding the past, present and future of our relationship with the digital age. Are we at the point in time that marks the end of the Digital era or does it point to a transformation in the way we understand its role in art and our wider society.
