The tour will be followed by a time of discussion on this page, giving a chance to ask the artist questions that he will respond to in his normal, inimitable way. Murray, Manuela and I had this guided tour last night and it was a truly unique and memorable experience. We'd love to have you join us on Friday.
Here is more about the exhibition from Petrică: '“Closed Bedroom,” my first solo show, reflects on the new socio-political realities brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting with the question of the role of the artist in a time of crisis such as ours, the paintings initially created for this show served as a diaristic practice for experimentation and as a way of reflecting, amid confusion and anxiety, on the current events. The bedroom, which becomes part of the artwork itself, with its larger context of social distancing and self-isolation, locates my paintings between the inside and the outside, the private and the public, which further invites questions of how we negotiate our new experiences of communication and social interaction.”'
