Project Space


 ‘Curse of the laughing hand’ is a group show proposed by artist Brian Mountford. It is a show which seeks to bring together a humorous and playful approach towards art & painting.

The works on show here and the ideas associated with them are assorted, ranging from impromptu slapstick to much more complex works that involve a conscientious accumulation of historical and art related ideas.

All of the works in the show however, employ creative strategies in their portrayal of a subject as well as in the different ways they distort the perspectives through which they look at it. Like a joke, a piece of art demands an audience to be significant.
