As you might have guessed this is our last entry to the Cardboard City exhibition.
|The Tate Modern, London|
|Tete de Alencar's door & |
the Golden Hinde
|The Penultimate door|
Tete de Alencar studied in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil before moving over to these fair shores. She studied in Wales (Coleg Menai), Liverpool (John Moore's University) and finally in London (Central St Martins). As a truly international artist she has exhibited worldwide and draws her inspiration from complex social issues embedded in contemporary society.
|Tete de Alencar -|
'OCD and the Silver Spoon dialogue!'
“What you see is never what you are going to get…the real work is usually hidden and sacred in a container - a disguise to protect the real art piece, transforming it into an enigma. It’s an ancestral magic, an ancient tactic...they will have to be aware that breaking the spell and revealing what is inside, involves a kind of death of the piece and transforms it into ordinary gold…”
|Stuart Simler - ‘Outside Looking In’|
We were suitably galvanised.
Thank you for visiting these pages over the past month and being a part of the exhibition even if you have been unable to see the artwork in situ.
Now for a little break from blogging and exhibiting. We'll be open again for business in the New Year where we'll be revisiting our first ever street-art exhibition, the one and only FAB Fridge.
We have been awarded one of the coveted curatorial platforms at the Fringe Arts Bath Festival in May 2014. It will be an open submission with 500 spaces up for grabs so get involved -

Have a wonderful Christmas from all of us at CollectConnect,
Bryan, Dean, Alban and Stuart.
