Le Roi Fou presents Joanna Kessel: Aurum | Gold
Kessel’s is the third in a series of exhibitions at Le Roi Fou and will feature intimately scaled collages in Venetian gold leaf mosaic, glass smalti and concrete.
Aurum | Gold evokes memories and imaginings of places Kessel has encountered within cities, both here in Edinburgh and also in Italy, particularly Venice and Ravenna. The work celebrates beauty in ordinary, chance arrangements, pattern, texture and colour as well as the rich, light reflecting qualities of gold leaf glass mosaic to be found in Byzantine basilica and contemporary Venetian architecture.
The exhibition at Le Roi Fou builds on the success of Kessel’s shows this year as part of ‘Collect’ at the Saatchi Gallery, London, and at ‘Ravenna Mosaico’, the contemporary mosaic biennale in Italy.
Commenting on her upcoming exhibition, Joanna Kessel said:
“Ever since the first morning Isolde visited my studio to propose this exhibition at Le Roi Fou, we have enjoyed a wide-ranging and inspirational dialogue centred around my work ‘(In)visible Cities’. These developed along curious routes, veering this way and that, ending back at the work which has become suffused by a different light - a warm glow in dark midwinter.”
“AURUM | Gold has developed out of these conversations in a collaborative spirit. I’m looking forward to seeing the work emerge from my studio into the more domestic setting at Le Roi Fou.
