memory of light
110-116 Kingsgate Road, London NW6 2JG
5-13 March 2010
Curated around the theme ‘In memory of light’, this exhibition brings
together a group of international artists showing together for the first time.
With a diverse cultural heritage from all corners of the world ((London, New
York, Istanbul, Cape Town, Hong Kong) – and an age range spanning forty
years – a wealth of personal experience informs their work.
Their varied practice makes for an inspiring response to theme and
the work shown includes a vibrant mix of painting, print, drawing,
sculpture, video and installation
This is an exciting opportunity to experience the artists' work at a transformative
point in their professional creative development.
Alexandra Valy is showing "Safe
as houses II"
Working with light, shadows, projections and a recurrent window motif,
Alexandra Valy has been creating atmospheric installations reminiscent
of black and white German expressionist films and the writings of Edgar
Allan Poe. She scratches the emulsion off used 35mm film, exposing the
transparent film which she then projects, creating ‘light line drawings’ with
visible scratch marks. Through this process she is playing with meditative
and evocative effects, attempting to create a state of mind – or
a ‘mind space’.

Alexandra graduates from the Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art.
