Twenty six young artists from different countries are going to “land” in Modena (Italy) in the expository venue of the former Sant’Agostino Hospital, on the occasion of International Departure: Gate 10, a show devoted to the students of some of the most important European institutions dealing with Photography and Fine Arts, from 12 June to 4 July 2010.
On display there will be the works of 26 students selected among 11 institutions of 6 different European countries, which distinguish themselves in the field of education: Royal College of Art in London, Stills – Scotland’s Centre for Photography in Edimburgh (Great Britain); Academie St. Joost in Breda (The Netherlands); Akademie der bildenden Künste in Vienna, Universität für angewandte Kunst in Vienna, Kunstuniversität in Linz (Austria), Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig (Germany), Universidad Politecnica de Valencia (Spain), Accademia di Belle Arti in Catania, Fondazione Marangoni in Florence, CFP Bauer in Milan (Italy).
The exhibition, curated by Filippo Maggia, intends to emphasize the work of young artists who are approaching the international art scene, giving them the opportunity to exhibit in an institutional contest and to confront themselves with other European “colleagues”. This is in line with the educational aims of Fondazione Fotografia, the cultural project promoted by Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio in Modena in parallel with the creation of a Collection of contemporary photographs. In this framework has also to be set the launching of an international Master of high qualification in the field of photography and images, starting from the academic year 2011/2012.

I'm ecstatic to announce that I will be kicking off The Antheneum's "Art at the Atheneum" with my first solo exhibition in Aberdeen entitled "Numerology". The show is comprised of a selection of new works based around the magpie.
Surrounded by myth, superstition and misconception, the magpie is a bird of complex symbolic and folkloric origin. From the trade-mark trinket laden nest to their ominous numerically fateful flocks, the monochromatic magpie is a bird both maligned and revered throughout the western and eastern worlds. Combining their fierce intelligence with a covetous nature, the magpie is as diverse and intriguing as the objects that litter its nest, and has consequently provided a rich and fascinating research base for “Numerology”.

I imagine this midnight moment's forest:
Something else is alive
Beside the clock's loneliness
And this blank page where my fingers move.
Through the window I see no star:
Something more near
Though deeper within darkness
Is entering the loneliness:
Cold, delicately as the dark snow,
A fox's nose touches twig, leaf;
Two eyes serve a movement, that now
And again now, and now, and now
Sets neat prints into the snow
Between trees, and warily a lame
Shadow lags by stump and in hollow
Of a body that is bold to come
Across clearings, an eye,
A widening deepening greenness,
Coming about its own business
Till, with sudden sharp hot stink of fox
It enters the dark hole of the head.
The window is starless still; the clock ticks,
The page is printed.
