By Blue Curry
Blue Curry (b.1974, Nassau) is a London based artist who works primarily in sculpture and installation. Using an idiosyncratic language of found materials he engages with themes of exoticism, tourism and cultural commodification. The formal elegance of his works is often at odds with the commonplace objects and unsophisticated techniques used to create them. Disrupting the mythic components of clichéd fantasies, he takes viewers to a seductively familiar destination but denies them the simple consumption they desire. Blue obtained an MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College and has shown extensively. He participated in the Liverpool, SITE Santa Fe and Jamaica Biennials, as well as in group shows at P.P.O.W Gallery, New York, The Art Museum of the Americas, Washington DC, the Fondation Clément, Martinique and the V&A Museum, London. In 2011 he had his first institutional solo show at the Nassauischer Kunstverein (NKV), Germany and was recently selected for the Studio Voltaire Open exhibition curated by Cory Archangel and Hanne Mugaas. Blue Curry exhibited in Take A Bite Of Peach at One Thoresby Street (2014) and participated in The Talks. You can purchase a limited edition print from Curry via the One Thoresby Street online shop.
