About Alex Cecchetti

Alex Cecchetti (1977-2014) was an artist, a poet and a choreographer. Difficult to classify, his work can be considered as the art of the un-representable. Tactile and poetic, aesthetic and materialistic, it creates mental and physical environments which exist inside and outside our continuum. The artist died for the first time in 2014 for unknown reasons. He continues to produce new works, present new performances and publish new poems.  

Cecchetti has exhibited internationally having solo exhibitions at Kunstraum, London (2015), Contemporary Art Centre (CAC), Vilnius, Lithuania (2012) and Jue de Paume, Paris, (2011) and solo performances at Serpentine Galleries, London (2015), Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2014), MAXXI museum, Rome (2012). Recently the Palais de Tokyo in Paris dedicated him a day of carte blanche. Next solo exhibitions CCA Ujazdowski Castle Warsaw (Poland) and Ferme du Buissons (France).

About the exhibition

Giles Round, They bow. Curtain. No applause. 

8 April to 18 June 2017 

Giles Round works across disciplines and engages with a variety of materials, processes and collaborators to address the relationship between art, design and functionality. His work is populated with citation and appropriation and, over the last decade, he has built an extensive catalogue of references to early and late modernist manifestations with a particular focus on the design object. http://www.spikeisland.org.uk/events/exhibitions/giles-round-exhibition/

Organiser

Spike Island

Spike Island is an international centre for the development of contemporary art and design. Based in Bristol, UK, it is home to a gallery, café and working space for artists, designers and creative businesses. A vibrant hub for production, presentation and debate, we offer opportunities for audiences to engage directly with creative practices through participation and discussion.

Our vision is to position art as central to society, which we do in two ways: by offering a high quality, challenging programme of exhibitions and events; and by fostering a dynamic and critically engaged community of artists and designers. Spike Island collaborates with local and regional partners as well as with international institutions, museums and universities.
