Associate Studio Programme 8 : Eva Gold

Eva Gold visited the studio in September, but our invitation to her was prompted by her show at Ginny on Frederick ‘The Last Cowboys’, early in the year in May. It acted as the reference point for conversation – by generalising some of its characteristics in relation to the work of a number of the Associates. These themes included the “mis-employment” of materials and the process by which the meaning of one migrates to or even infects the other; the relation between the work presented and space in which it’s presented; the possibilities that open up in galleries which don’t adopt or conform to the ‘white cube’ model. This was very much the case in Eva’s Ginny on Frederick show, particularly in terms of the conversations between the white tiled space and the works exhibited – notably the reflections from the illuminated sign, on the tiles and the sheen of the rubber jackets. The work resonated with several of the Associates own practices and Eva’s visit was a great opportunity to explore those and other ideas together with her.
