Tatty Devine

Tatty Devine

At the opening of «What Performance Artists Wear» Silvia Ziranek (UK) performed her work NOT UNDIRTY for the first time in Switzerland, together with her daughter Yma. The bespoke pair of sparkling Toilet earrings and pendant worn during the performance were originally designed for Ziranek’s 2011 NOT UNDIRTY performance at the Wellcome Collection’s Dirt exhibition in London by the go-to brand for original, fun, acrylic statement jewellery Tatty Devine.

From loo rolls to gender roles, this conceptual capsule collection juxtaposes high glamour with the tropes of domesticity and questions conventional roles within the home, as explored in Ziranek’s performance.

Last summer Tatty Devine announced an exclusive collaboration with visual artist Silvia Ziranek. The highly limited trio of toilet bowls with a ‘flush’ of shimmering mirror, iridescent and opalescent water droplets are each available in a limited numbered edition of 20, accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

Tatty Devine was founded in the heart of east London in 1999 by Harriet Vine MBE and Rosie Wolfenden MBE after graduating from Chelsea School of Art. Art is a central theme of Tatty Devine’s work and the brand is known for highly popular collections co-created with British artists including Gilbert & George, Morag Myerscroft, and Jeremy Deller. Additionally, Tatty Devine is both stocked in and hosts jewellery-making workshops at cultural institutions including Tate, V&A and BALTIC.

marywo is thrilled to offer unlimited edition, artist-designed magnets by Claudia Bitrán as part of her exhibition, Broken over the top. These affordable, unnumbered, editioned works are intended to provide the public, even the youngest of collectors, an opportunity to acquire a small piece of Bitrán’s practice. These may be seen in the lineage of artists creating low-cost souvenirs, from Keith Haring’s 1980s Pop Shop to Takashi Murakami’s small toys. They also connect to centuries of history where miniature souvenirs have served as memories of cultural sites and journeys.

Two variations of the magnets are on offer. Both depict images of Britney Spears, shown in action, taken from her erratic IG videos. An almost daily feed shows Spears dancing in her house, often scantily clad, to an online audience of millions. They serve as complementary to the drawings in the exhibition Broken over the top, which centres on the idea of dance and choreography and its connection to pop culture. 

In one work, we see the pop icon with her hands in the air and her blonde hair swinging as if in motion. Bitrán draws the star wearing a white tank top with snakes on it—a wry reference to her Slave 4U performance—and her trademark super low-slung shorts. In another variation, Spears is seen from behind with her arms outstretched, mid-twirl, during one of her dizzying, Sufi like dances. The manic energy and enthusiasm that exudes dominated discussions of pop culture. 

Both magnets continue Bitrán’s ongoing investigation of female representation in popular culture. Questioning the accepted norms of the male gaze that has dominated the history of art for centuries, Bitrán uses both humour and excitement to traverse these themes.

Claudia Bitrán’s solo exhibition Broken over the top, curated by Kathy Battista, is currently on view at marytwo through 09 December, 2023.

“Published in collaboration with Istituto Svizzero this artist’s book provides a comprehensive insight into the artistic cosmos of Klodin Erb, one of the most renowned contemporary artists in Switzerland. Starting with painting and drawing on art and cultural history or pop culture, she has been developing large-format and smaller paintings, installations and videos since the 1990s. The publication includes text contributions by 11 different authors from very diverse perspectives and shows how the themes and motifs of Klodin Erb’s works are interconnected in a rhizome-like manner, allowing us to immerse ourselves in her fantastic world.” Mousse Publishing

“Image Making / Παραγωγή Εικόνων” is a visual atlas of image making made by Anastasia Pavlou in 2020. Within it, images and image-making are explored porously, interlacing photographs, scans, digital collages, and drawings in varied non hierarchical configurations. This book can also be seen as a map and a record of personal experience – one that is about looking, and one that looks.

It includes contributions from Hugo Canoilas, Vasilis Chamam, Julia Gardener, Panos Giannikopoulos, Danai Giannoglou, Alix Janta, Stellios Kalinikou, Aris Mochloulis, NMR, Margot Norton, Eleni Odisseos, Eva Papamargariti, Yorgos Prinos, Sebastian Lloyd Rees, David Sampethai, Laurentiu Sarjan, Erica Scourti, Kiriakos Spyrou, Jesper List Thomsen, Maria Toumazou, Arnisa Zeqo. With kind support from Nicholas Konstantinidis, Amalia Mytilineou, Leopold Thun, and those who wish to remain anonymous.

“Image Making / Παραγωγή Εικόνων” was designed by Korina Gallika

‘SCHMIDTI CITY’ is an artist book by Kristina Schmidt and provides an inventory of 128 paintings, painted in New York City in the years 2018-2021, accompanied by a poem by Kyrill Constantinides Tank and a text by Scott Roben.

Kristina Schmidt’s practice oscillates between making paintings and exploring time-based sculptural forms, materials, symbols and relations. With a focus on the history and presence of painting, Kristina Schmidt echoes concepts such as the artist’s subjectivity and the artwork’s autonomy. Kristina Schmidt’s first solo show was titled SCHMIDTI CITY and took place at Galerie Christine Mayer in Munich in 2020.
