Sophie Lee, SPACE / Bloomberg ON studio awardee and Bread Show artist is joined by artist Carlos Monleon Gendall in the latest installment of SPACE’s conversation publishing platform.
In a wide ranging dialogue bread and baking are explored from multiple viewpoints, including class, ‘creativity’ and history. The Conversation will be available in printed form in gallery and below online. In addition an image relating to the dialogue will be printed behind the main desk.
Sophie Lee (born Johannesburg, 1988) lives and works in London. She gained a BA in Fine Art from the Slade School of Fine Art, London in 2012. Recent exhibitions include Young London, V22 (2013) and 'Speak, Memory!', N/V_PROJECTS at The Dye House, PAMI, September 2012, London.
Carlos Monleon Gendall (born Madrid, 1983) lives and works in London. He has variously operated as a chef, baker and cheesemonger while simultaneously proposing an art practice concerned with the relationship between shifting material values, culturally engaged foodstuffs and diegetic digestions. He has recently directed an edible opera about an anti-farinaceous Fourierian revolution and has began fermenting ‘speculative wines’.
The Conversation is a rolling project at SPACE. Over the last year we have stage a series of conversations between our studio artists and selected interlocutors. The project began in January 2013 when Clunie Reid was joined by glamour model/internationally recognised body builder Jodie Marsh and continued with a dialogue between Patricia Lennox-Boyd and writer Alexander Zevin.
