Desperate Artwives debut exhibition opens

May 17, 2012

Desperate Artwives launch their first exhibition to the public this weekend in Bermondsey, London.

Desperate Artwives is a group of women artists who put their artistic needs on hold to attend to family and work duties but never really forgotten who they are at heart.  It is the brainchild of Italian born conceptual artist Amy Dignam, and features work from Slavka Jovanović and Jasna Nikolić among others.

Slavka is a conceptual artist whose innovative work includes “Falling Apart And Keeping It Together At The Same Time” – an animated film presented in a doll’s house.

Belgrade-born Jasna’s work “steps into eternity…the discovery of God’s presence in the everyday”.

The exhibition is featured in the Guardian.

The material is amazingly varied and the exhibition runs from 19th to 29th May 2012 with the following details:

Vibe Gallery, The Biscuit Factory,

Tower Bridge Business Complex,

100 Clements Road Bermondsey,

London SE16 4DG.

Opening Times 19th to 29th of May 2012

Tuesday to Saturday 12:00 – 23:00 (Sunday and Monday Closed)

Entrance is free.  Read more about this inspiring project here or email here for more information.
