Kites & Flowers

Eventbrite - Kites & Flowers

On Friday August 14th, Tony Scrivener and I had a great time installing our 3rd show as London based duo Hollis & Scrivener. Our 3rd show, 'Kites & Flowers', is now on at Fulham based venue Chairs & Coffee. As you can see from the pictures, it's a quirky venue, with its very own unique character! We love working with the unusual space, and after our first run at Chairs & Coffee last December, it's great to be back.

Join us to celebrate our first year working together as a duo on Friday 11th September 2015 6-9pm.

Hollis & Scrivener
After working with each other on the first two Artists Who … exhibitions, Tony Scrivener and I created 'Hollis & Scrivener’, a platform designed specifically to showcase ‘Bloodlines’, which will showcase a long running series of exhibitions; a visual inquest into heritage. During the project Hollis and Scrivener document and synthesise a past culture & current nostalgia.

Escape 2 by Tony Scrivener

Tony Scrivener was born in London in 1972, and studied at the Surrey Institute of Art and Design, Epsom graduating
in 2003.

Drawing on ideas and themes often relating to personal experiences, Tony Scrivener's paintings reflect a consistent desire to resurrect and comment on the faded and overlooked aspects of London. Stating: “Living in the environment I draw inspiration from, has a direct impact on my methods of working. For reasons unknown I feel the need to resurrect and comment on the city I live in”.

With a consistent need to tell the story the captitals inhabitants past and present, whether known to the artist or not. These stories are retold in Tony’s work through careful assemblages and appropriations of the artists’ observations. His work uses a broad range of materials in his work, both traditional and untraditional.

Tony Scrivener has exhibited in group shows with the London art collective, Artists Who … , at both Trispace Gallery, Bermondsey and Espacio Gallery, Shoreditch. Most recently he was selected by the I Know What I Like arts facilitation organisation to exhibit during October 2014 at the Curious Duke Gallery, London EC1. He is also an active associate member of the Studio 1.1 Gallery, Shoreditch and associate member of Banner Repeater Gallery, Hackney.

Tony Scrivener lives and works in London.

Hollis & Scrivener Present Bloodlines
Inside the aPanopticon
Espacio Gallery
159 Bethnal Green Road
E2 7DG

PV January 8th 6pm - 9pm

Graham Asker presents the aPANOPTICON at the Anti Gallery Gallery Show. The aPANOPTICON is an experimental mechanical sculpture that functions as a secret art gallery within a gallery. Artwork placed inside can only be explored using a HD video camera controlled remotely by the viewer with the images projected onto a wall. Artworks inside will be a mystery until revealed by the roving camera allowing each operator to construct their own narrative. It will feature a changing programme of exhibitions by invited artists/curators.

Vivienne Hollis and Tony Scrivener were selected by Graham Asker to exhibit inside the aPanopticon at Espacio Gallery, Shoreditch. The aPanopticon is an experimental project with novel curatorial features such as internal lighting where the work is hung. From the outside you view the work via a camera.

Hollis & Scrivener are presenting ‘Bloodlines'; a maze, a network of soft woolen bloodlines and veins which lead the viewer onto different objects and artworks, including new pieces such as miniature sculptures. The bloodlines are representative of a time line, a guide to past and present, a personal narrative into each artist’s history and influences that shaped who they are today.
