Micro is the new macro! After participating in the street art festival in Russia, my eyewitness collages are getting a royal treatment with a solo exhibition curated by Tiffany Struwig in her UK-based miniature gallery. I cried. Such a thrill.
Since 2014, the #eyewitnesscollage series on Instagram have cataloged over 100 “repurposed” pieces from within layers of street ads. This exhibition focuses on four originals: “A Missing Person Report; Missing A Person Report” and “Te recuerdo, guapo” as well as “Brief history of Tbilisi” and a triptych “Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov: Olga, Masha, Irina”. They carry a leitmotif of memory and displacement – two themes of our zeitgeist both embodied and digital. I am deeply moved to encounter these images re-imagined yet again in time and space by Tiffany. Onward!
