how to make a delicious tea

flip initiates various discussions through a parallel of exhibitions and printed publications curated by Federico Del Vecchio (Naples/Glasgow) and Ala Roushan (Toronto/Naples). The top floor of the 1690 Palazzo Ruffo di Castelcicala in the centre of Napoli, forms the base location. flip is a vision and a project not specific to any site, but rather an evolving network of activities and locales.
how to make a delicious tea is an ongoing project of accumulative work, reflecting on artistic production in terms of subtle and layered processes. It extends from the idea of the print, addressing the singularity of the original and implications of reproduction. The project is the re-representation of an image from an existing work transformed through reprint and shift in materiality. Silk is the support; it refers to changes in material perceptions and alludes to notions of hierarchy. It is this small shift that creates a new object, with a kind of conceptual blurriness, as it hovers between documentation and a ‘new work’.
how to make a delicious tea expands with additional artist collaborations contributing specific work to this process.
It will be presented with additional work for the upcoming exhibition project at Art Metropole, Toronto (February 18 – March 16, 2012), featuring works by the following artists: Eloise Hawser, Martin Soto Climent, Patrick Tuttofuoco, Per-Oskar Leu, Lena Henke, Andrea Sala.
On the occasion of the exhibit at Art Metropole, flip print V, including a text by Rosemary Heather, will be published in an edition of 100 copies.
