🔺️Naming the Money 2004
Installation view of Navigation Charts, Spike Island, Bristol 2017🔺️
Lubaina Himid was born in 1954 in Zanzibar, Tanzania.
Himid makes paintings, prints, drawings and installations which celebrate Black creativity and the people of the African diaspora while challenging institutional invisibility. She references the slave industry and its legacies, and addresses the hidden and neglected cultural contribution made by real but forgotten people. In Naming the Money 2014, 100 cut-out life size figures depict Black servants and labourers who Himid individualises, giving each of them a name and story to work against the sense of the powerless mass. She often takes her paintings off the gallery wall so that her images become objects that surround the viewer. Whether working on Guardian newspapers or directly onto porcelain tableware, Himid continually subjects painting to the material of everyday life in order to explore Black identity.

Italian artist #MassimoUberti creates large-scale light installations that look like simple drawings. Using neon tubes and transformers, his site-specific pieces depict everyday objects, such as a window frame, chair or table. Speaking of the inspiration behind his work, Milan-based Uberti says in an interview: “I like to create architectures of light. I employ neon tubes to build places for poetical inhabitants, trying to create dream-like spaces that allow for reflection.”
🔻Arch of Hysteria. 1993
Louise Joséphine Bourgeois (1911 – 2010) was a French-American artist. Although she is best known for her large-scale sculptures and installation art, Bourgeois was also a prolific painter and printmaker. She explored a variety of themes over the course of her long career including domesticity and the family, sexuality and the body, as well as death and the subconscious.These themes connect to events from her childhood which she considered to be a therapeutic process.
Louise had been in psychoanalysis from 1951 all the way up until the 1980s. At the beginning of psychoanalysis there was a lot of interest in the hysterical woman who would have these contortions where the body would arch up in the air and they couldn’t figure out because there was no physical reason for this kind of bodily reaction. They thought it had to be some sort of mental trauma, whether it was repressed memories or connected to psycho-sexual repression. Louise's work is to a certain degree the same thing. It’s psychological and emotional things manifesting in the body that she then transforms into sculpture.
