Restlessly Filippo Minelli has been traveling throughout Europe. Several new works have been made, one of them is Santa Europa da Esperança, a public installation in Lisboa. Others have been exhibited at the Noordkaap Tour, a group show in Dordrecht, Netherlands, which showed a review of some of his recent works: the We don’t need you at all performance in Cologne, Germany, the Flags of Istanbul and others.
Minelli’s next exhibition takes place in London this Saturday (Nov 10), a 1 day only group show at Chris Beetles Fine Photographs Gallery. After that a solo show in Cologne, Germany at Ruttkowski68 opens on Dec 7. Pick up the next issues of Elephant (NL) and Inventario (IT) because they feature some of his new works.
Scottish/British Montgomery is the associate publisher of Dazed & Confused and also a conceptual artist. He shows his poetry in public space, similar to ads. Some of his recent works have been shown throughout the city of Istanbul as part of the 12th Istanbul Biennial.
His thoughts about the reception of his work by the public:
“They know its not advertising, and its not graffiti either and they do not need an art history knowledge to read it. I’m super-interested in the ordinary person at the bus stop getting on the bus to their job everyday and suddenly seeing this weird text. I’m interested in reaching those people. They are my primary audience.”
