ALICE BLACK is pleased to announce Andre Stitt: space, hope + altered estates, a dual-location exhibition, hosted concurrently at ALICE BLACK, London and TEN, Cardiff, 15 September – 12 October 2018.

‘We encounter overlapping architectural blueprints, strange non-objects and floating geometric shapes; certain motifs hark to the mid-century modern, yet simultaneously hint at the digital and the coded. This is Stitt’s imagined and constructed retro-future – hard, angular and flat. Stitt’s use of synthetic acrylic paint allows for thin application, thus creating a seemingly endless and continually shifting depth through multiple layers on a flat plane.

‘space hope + altered estates’ continues Stitt’s personal exploration into the physical experience of day-to-day living amongst the ‘new future’ of post world war society and brutalist architecture. Bold and abstract, Stitt’s paintings offer the function of art and architecture as a futuristic vision of social development.

Andre Stitt was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1958. Working almost exclusively as a performance and interdisciplinary artist from 1976-2008, Stitt gained an international reputation for cutting edge, provocative and politically challenging work. A predominant theme in his artistic output was that of communities and their dissolution often relating to trauma and civil conflict, advocating art as a redemptive proposition. During this period his live performance and installation works were presented at major museums and galleries throughout the world including; MoMA PS1, New York City (2000), Venice Biennale (2005), Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, United Kingdom (2005), Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (2008).
