Roy Claire Potter
DEATH TO ALL PIGS WHO ENTER HERE! February 3 - March 26
A plus A Gallery, Venice
preview 3 February at 6.00 pm


Galleria A plus A is pleased to announce Roy Claire Potter's first solo show: Death to all pigs who enter here! The exhibition marks an important evolution in the artist's research who for the occasion created an unpublished series of over one hundred large and small format drawings on plastic, biodegradable polyethylene and paper presented in an immersive installation that is divided into all halls of the gallery. Death to all pigs who enter here! Combines stories of the West Yorkshire moorland read in medieval court scrolls with the artist's cinematographic and literary influences, from the English cult film Threads (1984), which chronicles the daily life of two English families during a possible nuclear winter, to The Butcher Boy (1992), a novel by Irishman Pat McCab, in which Francie Brady, the unfortunate young protagonist, cultivates a violent and hilarious life of fantasy in an attempt to survive a frustrating social exclusion - a key reference in the whole practice of Roy Claire Potter, from which the exhibition itself takes its title. If the representation of violent events and troubled lives, the use of narrative characters or voices have always been recurring elements in the artist's research Death to all pigs who enter here! Transports these suggestions into a more theatrical dimension, in a fictional world where the visitor is confronted with an intrusive tubular structure alternating with precarious shelters that descend from the ceiling to the floor obstructing the view and movement. Numerous small drawings on photographic paper show plants and animal elements, hooves, angry and then smiling pigs, colored figures that look like lost shepherds or sad guests of a masquerade party. Characters from a deck of cards or from a family album, a naïve taxonomy of details of this scenography that can be seen and invented countless times by anything or anyone who enters this path of stories that may have already happened or will happen as soon as he will look away. Roy Claire Potter has recently presented solo and group works with the MOSTYN Gallery (Llandudno, Wales - 2021); the Castlefield Gallery (Manchester, UK - 2021); with the Radiophrenia art radio station (Glasgow, Ireland - 2020); BBC Radio 3 (2020); the Salzburger Kunstverein (2020); the Collecteurs (New York, USA - 2020); and Tate Britain (2019). The artist has published two books on experimental art writing, Round That Way (Ma Bibliotheque, 2017) and Mental Furtniture
(VerySmallKitchen, 2014), and shorter works have been published by Dostoyevsky Wannabe, Hotel Partisan, Tate Publishing and the Center For Contemporary Art Derry-Londonderry. Roy has released audio with Cafe OTO (London, 2020), Sub Rosa (Belgium, 2018), Chocolate Monk (Brighton, 2018) and Fort Evil Fruit (Dublin, 2014/15). In 2022 (the artist will present / present) new works with the Primary Arts Center in Nottingham, and new collective works with the South Korean musician Park Jiha at the Counterflows Music Festival in Glasgow and for the record label Cafe OTO's Otoroku in London.
