VIBRANT, immediate and full of life and humour - an interim exhibition of Eden Kotting’s work sold out at the blackShed Gallery in Robertsbridge last year.
Now there is another chance to view Eden’s work with an exhibition that opens at Claremont Studios, in Kings Road,St Leonards, today (Friday), and runs until Sunday December 22 called My Work His Words (Again)
The exhibition comes from a deep relationship with her film-maker father Andrew Kotting and has been buoyed by Project Artworks, an artist led organisation that works with people who have complex needs.
Eden will already be familiar to those who have followed Andrew Kotting’s work. She starred in Gallivant - a feature length experimental road-movie that also featured her great grandmother Gladys and was partly filmed in Hastings and Bexhill.
In 2011 Andrew presented the film Louyre - This Our Still Life to wide acclaim at the Venice Film Festival. Set in the Pyenean landscape it formed a portrait of Eden and her mother Leila and was linked to a series of exhibitions and installations in Geneva and Brighton.
Andrew’s last film Swandown, saw him make a unique odyssey from Hastings to Hackney in a swan pedalo with the writer Iain Sinclair.
