On Wednesday night [DoR] attended Twelve Constellations at Vulpes Vulpes space in Clapton. Vulpes Vulpes is an artist run studio and exhibition space who hold regular art events, bringing together the local art community.
The exhibition brought together eleven emerging artists whose work referred to ideas of antiquities and collections. [DoR] were particularly drawn to Henry Castle's Once I shot a Bluebird for his subtle and innocent comment on universal certainty and Sam Hallett's We All Die Poor Things which also looked at the concept of mortality. In this piece a variety of different insects were ritually cremated in small cast coffins, simply displayed flagged by candles, like an altar.
The exhibition was curated by Carla Wright.

The evening was most enjoyable and it was great to see some familiar faces from Bath. We are looking forward to seeing what Vulpes Vulpes will bring us next.
