New Sculptures by Rose Salane at Carlos/Ishikawa, London

“Media Is A Plural Word (detail),” 2018, Rose Salane, Inkjet on newsprint, McDonald's Happy Meal toys, MDF board, 41.5 x 55 x 2.5 cm, Carlos/Ishikawa, London

 “All Those Events are True, But None of Them Happened” is the title of Rose Salane’s exhibition of recent works. The on going solo show presents the sculptor’s recent creations. The exhibition is taking place at the Carlos/Ishikawa Gallery in London until April 14, 2018.

The artist creates sculptures that fill in the blanks around fragments of information, stories or conversations overheard in public places. Her specialized style is invention of newspaper clippings about subjects who are characters in her creations.

This exhibition showcases three series of the artist. The first one is an installation work “All Those Events are True, But None of Them Happened,” consisting of three large-scale installations, the second one is “Media is a Plural Word,” inkjet on newsprint and the third is “Let Us Not Forget the Scene,” inkjet on newsprint. There are also some other pieces —“MT in the Oval Office” shows a plywood on which a baseball is placed signed by Margaret Thatcher. Another one is titled “When the World seemed New” and some other pieces.

Rose Salane was born in 1992 in New York. She lives and works in New York. Her work has been showcased in numerous solo exhibitions including James Fuentes Gallery, New York (2017); Ronchini Gallery, London (2016); Jeffrey Stark, New York (2015); Four A.M., New York (2015); Magic Gallery, New York (2015); and Cooper Union, New York (2014), among others.

“All Those Events are True, But None of Them Happened” runs through April 14, 2018, at Carlos/Ishikawa Gallery, London, Unit 4, 88 Mile End Road, London E1 4UN.
