This month in The Atrium, we present:
Bianca Tenga, a London based artist originally from Sweden. After spending some years in Switzerland she began her studies in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London. Her practice has evolved through her occupation as cabin crew, by using her destinations and experiences as inspiration and subject matter.
Her recent work at the Central Saint Martins degree show last year showed her ‘Hotel Room’ series, which was a selection of her larger collection of photographs exploring composition and colour of various hotel rooms across the globe.
One piece on show at the Zetter hotel is from the same series but has not been shown before. ‘Vancouver’ is a photographic print printed onto canvas. The photograph looks at the hotel room from a different viewpoint, offering a narrative of the occupant and investigates the hotel room through perhaps an odd composition and placement of personal affects.
Hannah Quinn, a designer-maker who specialises in metal work.
Taking industrial and often mundane repair materials, parts and fittings, I develop new pieces around the interplay between the ready-made and the hand-made object. The use of ready-mades makes objects feel familiar, encouraging the viewer to recognise something in them with which they can connect. However, objects refuse to conform to familiar categories, neither that of its original use or of a domesticated object, leaving them open to interpretation and playful interactions.
