My Perspective on time is not an activity in nostalgia.

Where is my future?
Is it in front of me or behind me?
Can I find it in my past?
What is becoming of this landscape
that makes up my memories I’m lost!
I’m looking for a past that wasn’t even there.

I’m listening to the past to try and find some direction
to find the thoughts
that drove me to where I’m at now,
who else has been listening?
Into my past who has seen
My memories does anyone give a shit.

Guided by a concern for the future,
I’m looking to the past
to find intellectual,
emotional,
spiritual guidance.
What really happened there
in the past what have
I inherited?

Have I deliberately distorted my memories
am I doing it now?
Imagining alternative distortions
that have lead me to set new goals
and work towards new ends,
is this a forward expression
of a deliberate lie,
I’m now making a memory
that feels so out of place
but at that very same time
it starts to feel right
am I reflecting on the wrong memory
or a
fictionalised one
that now looks
right,
this is not an activity in nostalgia.

I’ve been weaving my individual memories
with that of others shared experiences,
my personally significant landmarks,
my images,
my personal objects
or
were they someone else’s
that I came to acquire?
and moments my moments
to make up an understanding
of where
I am now and where
I have been and where
I want to go.

The inevitability of it all changing.​

Kira Freije in Conversation with Tom Worsfold

Kira Freije, The Dark Away, 2017

Join us on Tuesday 23rd May for an 'in conversation' between current exhibiting artist Kira Freije and artist Tom Worsfold. Kira and Tom will be informally discussing her work for 'The Dark Away' and her wider practice. 

The exhibition features a rocket, a machine and a human relationship. The works are constructed from metal; cast, bent, forced and welded.

The sculptures are less interested in being artworks, instead occupying a space that is cinematic and suggestive. Assertions of surreal, but human situations. They are jealous and violent and joyful and sad. Sitting between times; both of this world and other worldly.

The sculptures represent the human capacity to love and to hate, asking whether it is possible to be a good or a bad person. By making physical that which is inherently closeted, these works reveal themselves to be guilt-ridden, anxiety-driven, sometimes-happy contradictions. In other words, just the same as me and you and them.

Kira Freije (b. 1985, London, lives and works in London) received her BFA from the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, University of Oxford in 2011, and a postgraduate diploma from Royal Academy Schools in 2016. Her work has recently been included in exhibitions at Carl Freedman, Kinman, Sara Zanin (Rome) and Occidental Temporary in Paris (solo presentation).

Tom Worsfold (b. 1990, lives and works in London) recieved his BA from Slade School of Fine Art in 2013, and a postgraduate diploma from Royal Academy Schools in 2016. He recently had a solo show 'Apparition' at CARLOS/ISHIKAWA.
