Kimvi Nguyen, Andover College Art Technician Instructor, featured on episode 4 (Monday 18 May) of Grayson’s Art Show, on Channel 4.
Kimvi and her partner Vinny Montag submitted their work which was chosen for last night’s episode. The theme for last night’s episode is ‘view from my window’ and it will also feature Jeremy Deller.
Kimvi said: “Instead of painting the view from our window, we thought ‘what has been our window throughout the lockdown?’. We realised it had been the view inside our fridge. We went with this idea as we had been constantly opening and shutting our fridge door to reveal the ever changing landscape of our diet, illuminated every time. We worked with a time restraint of an hour to create our submission and the final piece was made from pieces of a bed frame and a bedsheet which we constructed as a curtained window inside our fridge.
Grayson announced on the show last night that Kimvi and Vinny’s work will be displayed in his exhibition which will be created once lockdown is over. He chose their work as he thought it was a ‘beautiful and successful gesture’. It was also a fantastic birthday present for Kimvi. The Art Club Exhibition is being put together as a lasting artistic record of how people have felt together through these strange times together.
Grayson Perry, Turner Prize winner and one of Britain’s leading contemporary artists, is bringing the nation together through art, making new works and hosting masterclasses set to unleash our collective creativity during lockdown.
Grayson started the show ‘Grayson’s Art Club’ to encourage viewers to produce and share their own artworks during lockdown. The past episodes have focused on portraits, animals and fantasy. The episodes have also included celebrities such as Joe Lycett, Harry Hill, Maggi Hambling, Antony Gormley and Noel Fielding.
We wish Kimvi and Vinny the best of luck with the exhibition. You can watch the full episode here.
