Event Location: Backestrasse 4 Gallery, Vienna, Austria

A group exhibition. It comprises of a body of work that was specially created for the gallery space, titled “Mediated Image” and it includes series of drawings and painting that are mediated between language as a system of information and the material properties displayed through practice of painting. This work opens a dialogue between provisional nature of marks and gestures and the performality that informs the history of painting, critically engaging with the models of representation that are concerned with the systems of image production and mechanization. I have also produced a catalogue to accompany this body of work, available online as a downloadable visual resource ( The working practice that informs this body of work was further carried into the textual and theoretical context that informed my PhD thesis, culminating in the whole chapter being written on the history and the discourse of the mediated painterly image. The chapter was presented at “Tableaux: Painting -Photo - Object” Conference at the Tate Modern, London in October 2012 (key note speakers include Philip Armstrong, Jean-François Chevrier, Michael Fried and Michael Newman) and at the Central St. Martin’s College of Art symposium titled “The Tableaux Project” in May 2011. The chapter is going to be published in the Journal of Visual Culture over the next few months. The impact of this exhibition has been very important and far-reaching, allowing me to disseminate my research activities in both practical and theoretical domains and to continue to develop my concerns and interests bound into its content. The next step is a solo exhibition in June 2013 at the same gallery in Vienna that will allow me to reflect on the concerns raised in the first instance and to produce a new body of work, informed by newly found information and visual research. The exhibition will also be followed by a two-months residency in Vienna, allowing me to forge much stronger international links and communities whilst working at the residency.
