SE22 portraits & places by olivier tafforin 20th september - 4th october 2019
Olivier is a photographer currently based in London. He developed an obsession for the medium at an early age before moving into fine art painting. He worked for many years in fashion and art publishing before going back to photography full time. He likes to direct every aspect of his shoots - set dressing, styling and make-up - but more importantly he is in charge of all the post editing and retouching for every single photograph. His time as a painter along with his fascination for cinema often informs the aesthetics of his images. His work has been exhibited in numerous UK venues over the years.
‘OF COURSE, I HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN!’ 22nd August - 2nd September 2019
Warbling is excited to present an exhibition titled, “Of course, I haven’t forgotten!”. A phrase which can be said with either hasty agitation or with shared rejoice for something which will pass or has already.
Each artwork in the exhibition is from either a Local, UK-based or International artist, these diverse individual pieces act as fragments of a larger ensemble synchronously eluding to a mistaken memory, a past which was maybe eerily rosetinted or an event to come which will eventually become strange and unfamiliar to us.
Although varied, the 27 artworks share a common sensitivity to a theme. Through this apparent vulnerability, each piece explores the melancholic stance which often goes hand in hand with our most valued memories.
Frederic Anderson, Mark Beldan, B Chehayeb, Tom Elliot, Lauren Emily Wilson, Thomas Garnon, Gabriela Giroletti, Andrew Graves, Dove Hays, Gabriele Herzog, Nicky Hodge, Sophie Lourdes Knight, Mary Macken Allen, AmandaNolan Booker, Joseph O’Neal, Emil Robinson, Michael Thomas Murphy, Ben Walker, Emma White, Tom Witherick,Maddie Yuille
Warbling is a London-based curatorial project which started in June 2017 as an Instagram account curated by artist Robyn Graham featuring a selection of artworks which fit within a quieter aesthetic.
With the help of fellow artists Vanessa Mosquera Cabanas and Onur Safak acting as co-curators and jurors, Warbling formed an ever interchangeable and expanding group which is not tied by geography or background but by those who share a common subtle style or similarly gentle qualities within their work.
By organising group pop-up exhibitions around London showcasing international artists who have found Warbling through Instagram, slowly but surely it is creating a community of exhibiting artists who maybe might just by chance be following each other already.
