‘Clean your room and you'll have a fresh start, it’s easier to breathe. Get rid of the clutter. In your room, in your closet, in your mind. You have less. You have enough. There is less that distracts you. There is less that you need to worry about. The minimum remains. It calms you. Focus only on what is necessary.  On what really matters.’

Quote of the day:

By the way, I have my bubble sword with me just in case we need it” 

Anne’s exhibition Light & Noise, hosted by Zwei Drei Raum in Kreuzberg, opens Friday 29th March and aims to highlight the lives of homeless people living in Berlin.

ARTFRONTIERE
Artist Interview

ArtFrontiere published an interview today in which I discuss recent work as well as my installation in London earlier this month at the Affordable Art Fair.

Earlier this month I had the pleasure of presenting new work from my Berlin series 8am Walks at the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea Park. For this installation I wanted to find a way of hanging photographic work from the series away from the exhibition wall in order to encourage a sense of play and chance encounter – strong themes within the series itself. To achieve this I made use of plastic packing crates, which feature in my work several times as colourful focal points, as building blocks for columns and walls on which to hang unframed prints. At times chaotic (and at other times working in waves of harmonious saturated hues), the installed crates became an interesting but nonetheless challenging background for an already colourful series.”

‘Jeremy Knowles is a lens-based artist influenced by personal encounters. His work lies between documentary and conceptual photography. While pottering around the streets of Berlin, Knowles looks for abstractions in the urban landscape and catalogs everyday mundane objects.’

‘For his latest project titled '8am walks', Berlin-based British photographer Jeremy Philip Knowles had a simple objective. Leave the house at 8 am every day with his camera and capture what he saw around him. A city that often has a reputation for being dark and gloomy, Jeremy dispels this popular myth with details of colour, pattern and shadow with a project that lasted for over two years. Born in Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom in 1992, Jeremy graduated with a degree in fine art photography from Camberwell College of Art in 2015. His practice has developed into a playful photographic study of the everyday.’

‘Instagram takeover by Berlin-based photographer Jeremy Knowles. Stepping out at 8am everyday with his camera over the course of two years, Jeremy captures a more playful side to his home city. Through his project of shooting everyday at 8am for two years Jeremy sheds light on finding detail, colours and layers in the mundane.’

SOME THOUGHTS
8am Walks

My ongoing search for colour in Berlin (along morning walks over the past two years) has, again and again, led me to take a closer look at the bits and pieces that normally go unnoticed within our daily ramblings. Trash (mainly discarded plastic) and commercial waste, alongside all the bizarre and hilarious ‘things’ left out on the street overnight in this city by Berliners, have become a focus of this series. Even a city as clean as Berlin, and one that focuses so much attention on recycling, can tell you a lot about itself in the objects it rejects. Saturated by the light of a sun that hides above clouds for entire seasons, the müll (trash) that I find and photograph in Berlin is here given centre stage. These objects disrupt the grey and the dull, and give me hope.

Curator Becca Pelly-Fry (Griffin Gallery, ELEPHANT Magazine) puts it into an interesting perspective here in a recent article in which she discusses psychogeography (and my work).

In these days of high anxiety, urban overcrowding and ecological disaster, the human relationship to environment has never been more fraught or problematic. How we navigate the next century will depend on our ability to stop, look, listen and feel; perhaps it’s time for some geographical empathy.

I continue to be inspired by the work of Keith Arnatt, who passed away just over ten years ago (Dec 19th, 2008). In all of his works - from conceptual peices  in which he buried himself alive in front of the camera to a documentary series in which he took photos of cows after the UK’s foot and mouth crisis - Arnatt saw the perculiar within the ordinary... and made us laugh. His series ‘Pictures from a Rubbish Tip’ (1988-89) is perhaps one of my favourite series of all time.

THE TIME IS RIPE FOR SOME GEOGRAPHIC EMPATHY
Becca Pelly-Fry (Curator - Elephant Magazine)

Read the full article here

With the first Super Moon of 2019 in full, emotion-stirring effect, Becca Pelly-Fry meets the groups who are searching for constructive ways to deal with hardship, considers Debord’s psychogeography, and hunts for a new visual language that successfully communicates and opens, rather than closes, the conversation.


‘In 1955 Guy Debord coined a new word, psychogeography, which he defined as “the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behaviour of individuals”. He was interested in the ways in which we form memory, derive pleasure or experience sadness through our surroundings and how those responses in turn affect the way we perceive the environment. In these days of high anxiety, urban overcrowding and ecological disaster, the human relationship to environment has never been more fraught or problematic. How we navigate the next century will depend on our ability to stop, look, listen and feel; perhaps it’s time for some geographical empathy.‘

PLATFORM PROJECTS
Affordable Art Fair, Battersea Park

7 -10 March 2019

Battersea Evolution
Queenstown Road
London
SW8 4NY

New work from my ongoing 8am Walks series will feature in this Spring’s Platform Projects at the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea Park alongside works by artists Scarlett Bowman, Alice Wilson, Rebecca Byrne and Alice Irwin. You can find more info on the Art Fair site here

‘Whilst they don’t offer immediate answers, the artists in Platform Projects all consider the ways in which we relate to our environment and thus pose important questions for us all to consider.  Scarlett Bowman takes inspiration from incidental arrangements of everyday objects, creating abstracted paintings and sculptures that carry recognisable but oblique references to place; Rebecca Byrne makes large-scale, immersive paintings that take the viewer on a journey through her own memories; Alice Irwin uses the language of childhood play to explore psychological questions and experiences; Jeremy Knowles seeks the unexpected in his daily walks around his Berlin neighbourhood, capturing moments of colour that stand out from the gloom; Alice Wilson places painted objects in the landscape to help audiences navigate, then brings them back into the urban environment bearing the traces of their previous incarnation, reconnecting nature and the man-made’

The Language Farm


Read an article featuring work I made at the Language Farm in Germany here in Earthlings Magazine.

‘From April to October I would find myself away from the stressors of the modern world, immersed in a place of which nothing else outside it existed. In the heart of Germany a little country of its own has been formed, where the English language is preferred, fires keep you warm at night and technology is non-existent.’

DOCH PRESENTS: 8AM WALKS
Solo exhibition by Jeremy Knowles


Private View:
17 February 2018
5-10pm
@ HOM Berlin

I’m very excited to be delivering a solo show with DOCH Project this February in Neukölln. This first comprehensive display of works from my ongoing series ‘8am Walks’ will be on show at HOM Cafe alongside a small batch of limited newspaper editions produced for the exhibition.

We're kicking off this year's exhibition program with '8am Walks' - part of an ongoing series by photographer Jeremy Knowles.

'8am Walks' is built upon one simple instruction: Leave the house at 8am with a camera and walk. For Jeremy it is both the beginning and end of a journey, and fulfils a major role within his ongoing and playful photographic study of the everyday. By bringing greater prominence and visibility to the accidental, the miraculous and the comical, we are challenged by the artist to reconsider the weight of our daily interactions with things and people, and meditate on what happens when we think nothing is happening.
