“Beth Fox's work espouses a complex form of reflexive post-modern humour with influences as diverse as Kierkagaard and Woody Allen, through the medium of sculpture and text new variations are synthesised from both opaque and transparent meanings and what starts out as contemplation soon becomes manipulated into a hegemony of defeat, leaving only a sense of unreality and the unlikelihood of a new order. . ” - August DeWitt (writer, intellectual, art critic, feminist, political activist and gender theorist.)

"I'M CURATING MY OWN SOLO SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111" is the first UK solo exhibition of Irish artist Beth Fox.

Fox's practice involves an investigation into the legacies of conceptual and appropriation art. Incorporating sculpture, drawing and text Fox's work questions the structures and dynamics of the art world through the eyes of the “struggling artist” archetype. Her work employs self-conscious humour to question the dynamics of the institute; the relationships and/or power struggles between art and artist/artist and curator/curator and gallerist/gallerist and collector/audience and artist/gallerist and art/collector and gallerina. Much of her work is concerned with hierarchies in art institutions and the space that exists between “emerging”, “established” and “successful” art/ists.

About the artist:

Beth Fox gained employment at an early age working for a local Shepherd in the lonely hills on the west coast of Ireland. One day she was discovered by a passing nobleman who witnessed her quietly sketching sheep in the sand with a pointed stick. The nobleman was so taken with her talent and skill that he took her away with him and trained her as a painter in his studio in Florence. One day while she was painting the cherub-like face of an angel in the background of one of the nobleman’s majestic canvases he stopped her. The brush fell from his hand in astonishment as he realised that he had nothing left to teach her.
She became the master, and he the pupil.

My Career in Poetry or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Institution My Career in Poetry or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Institution
An American poet was invited to the White House in order to read his controversial plagiarized poetry. All tricked out and ready to do it his way, he comes to the “scandalous” realization that nothing bothers anyone anymore, and instead of banging your head against the wall it is better to build you own walls or at least little fences.

The editors of Umělec have decided to come up with a list of ten artists who, in our opinion, were of crucial importance for the Czech art scene in the 1990s. After long debate and the setting of criteria, we arrived at a list of names we consider significant for the local context, for the presentation of Czech art outside the country and especially for the future of art. Our criteria did not…

Who is S.d.Ch? A person of many interests, active in various fields—literature, theater—known for his comics and collages in the art field. A poet and playwright foremost. A loner by nature and determination, his work doesn’t meet the current trends. He always puts forth personal enunciation, although its inner structure can get very complicated. It’s pleasant that he is a normal person and a…
