7788 Present the Identity Series
Last Thursday evening lots of you piled into the salon to preview the exhibition from hot new collective 7788. And for good reason as they are one very talented duo! Neringa Rekasiute, Lithuanian born and London bred, is a fashion photographer featured as ‘one to watch’ in Wonderland. Her partner in work and life (they are engaged) is Gareth Paul Jones, Design Director of a Shoreditch creative agency. It’s the first time the pair have exhibited together, and we were very pleased they chose Kaizo.
The photos on show make up the ‘Identity Series’, a beautiful and unique look at postmodern identity. Each image heroes a female deity from Greek mythology – Artemis, Athene, Aphrodite, Hera, Hestia and Persephone. The figures are powerful and striking and interwoven with unexpected elements like birds, thorns, and bullets. It’s a unique take on what it’s like to be a woman in the twenty-first century. But it’s definitely not an exhibition just for women…
There was a great turnout on Thursday so thank you all for coming. Lots of beer was drunk and lots of fun was had. If you didn’t catch it, we suggest you pop your head in and check it out before it closes on 23 March. Although some of the works were snapped up, the good news if you fall in love with any of them is that some are still available. One of our favourites – Aphrodite (below top) – is also available as a print to order, limited edition run.
