Event description

Description

Artist’s book ‘Three by Three' will launch at Westminster Reference Library during Lee Simmons’s birthday party / installation on 14th December, 6-8pm. Documentation from her previous birthday projects will be exhibited in the space from 9th till the 15th December, 2017.

This will be the last event at the library before it closes for refurbishment on the weekend. BYO beer and snacks.

Concept:

‘This collection of postcards is an attempt to communicate and log some of the installation art and social sculptures I have made over the last 17 years. These have often consisted of ephemeral paintings and performances in the landscape, documented photographically.

How do you archive a practice that paints on living canvases and constructs usually fleeting lived experiences? Who owns the work? The photographer, land owner, the painters?

Varied communities have contributed to the paintings, from Surrey firemen to Ibizan goats, with passers by, friends and family. Which element is the artwork - the documentation, event, concept?’ Lee Simmons

The collection of images will be launched on three occasions. The first will take place at Westminster Reference Library with one copy being added to the library archive system and another sold to the exhibition guests, who will be able to purchase one postcard for £1. The artwork is authenticated using a DNA tag, which logs the exchange.

Further launches will be held on mountains and cliffs during the library closure. Information will be added here: www.lee-simmons.com/birthdayprojects
