PORTFOLIO - GRETTA SARFATY BY FELIPPE MORAES, 21 MAY 2019

 

 

 
 
 
 
NEW WORKS AND A NEW ERA FOR GRETTA SARFATY (Private View: 19 March, 18:30 - 21:30), 2013
The last show to take place at Gretta's space in King’s Cross, is a self-referential extravaganza about the artist career.

The artist revolutionizes the idea of a retrospective exhibition, a fresh new ars poetica… The exhibition offers us a glance
into the future experiencing the past. Gretta has directed her own Fellini’s 8 and ½ finale. At the opening night joined by
artist’s friends she will exhibit artworks that reinterpret her memories)

Familia Memorabilis 2013, wall installation. A4 x 22, A3 x 1 photos on archival paper, 117 x 180cm.

Gretta Sarfaty invited some friends-artists to interact with 9 sheds situated on her roof terrace overlooking Kings Cross.
THE SHED is the intersection between the inside and outside, a British symbol of sanctuary that opens a new world of dreams
and possibilities. Invited artists: Olly Beck, Gordon Beswick, Katerina Botsari, Simcha Elias, Mikey Georgeson, Russell
Herron,Liz Neal, Paul Tecklenberg, Harry Pye, Jill Rock, Gretta Sarfaty, Richard Taylor, Florin Ungureanu.
Russell Herron curated shed with Marianne Spurr and Stewart Gough.

Was the original gallery space making Gretta Sarfaty claustrophobic and trapped once more? She has been using the sheds
as a space to store her many lives.
Here past experiences are combined with new experimentation and transformation.
