Paul Stolper is proud to announce Rie Nakajima as the second artist in the series ‘The Silence Between.’ Nakajima’s work titled Carpet which will feature sound, kinetic movement and found objects.
“The sound will be raw and discreet. The title represents the covering of the floor and the space between the floor and feet but also expresses both comfort and discomfort and the involving of other senses such as touch and smell. The piece will have sound and also no sound.” – Rie Nakajima 2013
Rie Nakajima is an artist based in London. She studied art history and aesthetics at Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music (BA), sculpture at Chelsea College of Art and Design (BA) and Slade School of Fine art (MFA). Her work develops as sculptural questions which take form in time and space through the experience of individuals. The mediums she chooses are mostly sounds, audio materials, kinetics, instruments, toys, found objects, architectural elements, and the environments, which are most often composed in direct response to the situation during the process.
Curated by Paul Stolper and composer Adrian Corker, ‘The Silence Between’ invites artists whose works use sound to involve and include the space between the gallery's usual scheduled shows. The works will cover a range of different disciplines from installation, to sculpture and performance.
‘The Silence Between’, which opened with Jem Finer’s Spiegelei Junior shown alongside Jerwood Drawing Prize-winner Mit Senoj’s drawings, will comprise of a number of shows over twelve months, culminating in a group show of all exhibited artists and a published edition. Future artists will include Richard Skelton, Dawn Scarfe and Liminal.
