The Only Rule is Work

Video by Helga Jakobson, 2016

All MFA participants and core tutors Erik Hagoort, Thomas Bakker plus invited guest tutor Iede Reckman spent a good time in Glasgow last april, 2016. We did studio visits with our colleagues of the Glasgow School of Art MFA, visited Market Gallery for a meetup, Sculpture Studio’s Glasgow and much more.

An important part of the trip was the presentation and event at House for an Art Lover in Glasgow. HFAAL generously hosted us in- and outside of the exhibition space, allowing experiment and working in-and with the moment as it presented itself to us. After the event, the manifestation of Glasgow International opened. Every venue in town was packed with exhibitions, talks and events.

Our trip was aimed at exploring a new place by also giving, contributing to it in making. In the video above you can get a glimpse of how that idea turned into The Only Rule is Work. Thanks to all involved for making it a special experience; participants, tutors, Iede Reckman, Gemma Mannion (House for an Art Lover), Conor Cooke (Market Gallery), John Calcutt (Glasgow School of Art) and their MFA participants, and all others involved.

Adriano La Licata, VHS 2015

Current MFA participant Adriano La Licata (IT) has a solo exhibition at Von Holden Studio, Palermo – curated by Francesco De Grandi and VHS.

17.12.2015 – 17.01.2016 / Opening december 17th, 19.00 h

“It remains this strange sense of a light and sweet work, so pure it can reach the innocence, but intense and sincere at the same time.”

Francesco De Grandi

Von Holden Studio opens the exhibition season with ‘ALL’, solo exhibition of the Sicilian artist Adriano La Licata (Palermo, 1989), enhanced by the curatorial support of artist Francesco De Grandi, one generation older than him and always attentive to the nursery of artists in the capital.

The exhibition, which opens Thursday, December 17, 2015 at 19:00, is composed by a clear body of work, 3 key moments of the latest research of the artist. It has been preferred to focus on a few elements as specific as fragile, along the balance of the biographical abstraction. Between documentation and ambiguity, amongst a delicate tragicomic vein and a strong meditative propensity, Adriano La Licata investigates – as he describes in his own words – ‘ that sensitive energy which arises between two or more points’.
