vamiali’s gallery is pleased to present the first solo show in Athens
of Canadian born and London based artist Janice Kerbel.
her solo show at vamiali’s she will present two main works. First,
under the title “Three Marked Decks” are templates for playing
cards with tiny alterations made to the patterned backsides.
second group of works with the title “Home Climate Gardens”,
is a series of digital drawings that conceive of gardens determined by
the climatic and architectural conditions of a range of indoor environments
for example “Council Flat: Wall mounted garden” or “Gym:
Respiration Garden”. These schematic drawings could be imaginary
guides for potential gardeners to assemble the ideal plants in the best
arrangement for unconventional sites.
2006 Janice Kerbel presented one of her most ambitious projects. Titled
“Nick Silver Can’t Sleep” is a 16-minute radio play
written for insomniacs. It uses the structure of the lullaby and the tradition
of a ballad to tell a narcotic tale of thwarted desire through the voice
of 6 nocturnal plants, each character having been developed in keeping
with the botanical attributes of the individual species. The play broadcasted
on 28 October 2006 by BBC 3.www.nicksilvercantsleep.org.uk
