Emblem – Deconstructed And Destroyed : A Homage To John Latham
Christina Mitrentse

30 September – 2 November

At: Trinity ∴ 310 Creek Road, Greenwich, London, SE10 9SW | Entrance on Bardsley Lane
Open: Thurs-Sun, 1-6 pm. Last Fridays: 1-9 pm. Also by appt. Site-Specific Work can be viewed daily, 24 hours.

Trinity ∴ is pleased to announce both the inaugural exhibition and launch of their new space and programme in Greenwich, London, coinciding with London’s foremost contemporary arts festival Deptford X and Deptford Last Fridays. The exhibition presents two artists whose work reflects the legacy of the renowned British conceptual artist
John Latham (1921 – 2006).

Emblem – Deconstructed And Destroyed, a new public art installation by the established, multidisciplinary artist Christina Mitrentse will be the first in an ongoing programme of site-specific billboard pieces commissioned for the site which will be viewable 24/7. The work forms part of Mitrentse’s acclaimed ongoing project Add To My Library. In response to John Latham’s sculpture at Flat Time House in Peckham, Mitrentse’s work is addressing the emerging exponential potential inherent in the surfaces around us in a devoted tribute to this highly important post-war artist.

“Latham considered his house a ‘living sculpture’ and used a theoretical language in which ‘Flat Time’ describes the way time and all possible events can be represented by the length and width of a flat canvas”

In addition to this the interior gallery space will host a participatory floor- based installation in which Mitrentse will collaborate with local book-sellers to create an ephemeral Meta-Library where the audience is welcome to reconstruct and purchase a variety of books and rare art publications that compose the work and continual ‘Bibliographic Data Flow’.

Emblem – Deconstructed And Destroyed: Limited Editions

Trinity ∴ exclusively offers a limited edition of 10 Hand-pulled screenprints of images from the ‘Emblem’ billboard piece. On 300gsm paper, edition of 10, numbered and signed by the artist (signed certificate). *Please contact the gallery or [click here for more info]

Evening Performance by Aoife Van Linden Tol – An Invitation To Participate

Internationally active artist and curator, Aoife Van Linden Tol will engage in a live performance using black-powder explosives to selectively detonate and delicately mark a number of books at the opening. The physical remnants of the performance will
subsequently be displayed in the gallery space, alongside a videowork documenting the process. John Latham was an important inspiration in her shift from object to action. Akin to Latham, this later led to the addressing and inclusion of in science, cosmology
and sociology.
