Karim Joe. By Natalie Menanno.

Imagine walking down the pier, hand in hand with your f/o. Listen to the waves crashing against the shore and the columns holding the pier up. The air smells salty and sand is in between your toes from when you chased your partner across the sandy beach. You reach the end of the long pier, where there’s a bench. You sit there, their head resting on your shoulder and your hand on their leg as you watch the sun set before the beach closes.

You’ve never been more in love.

mild steel bar and tubing, pvc tubing, clay fired and unfired, collected twigs, salvaged foliage, cable ties, mud collected from river bank fired and unfired, calming essence lotion, planished copper bowl, collected stones and pebbles, moss, plastic guttering, plastic tub, spring clamp, pump system, water, blue plastic fork


‘No Matter How Strong’ 2019 duo exhibition with Nisa Khan at Artcore, Derby to complete residency.

Imagine the scene: you’re surrounded by tall reeds on the shores of a swampy river. Away from the river the land slopes upwards to low hills, covered in lush grass and open woodland. The air is warm and humming with the sound of millions of insects. From your hiding place in the reeds you are astonished to see gigantic elephants approaching the water drink.

All of a sudden, the water near you erupts in boiling foam and the head of a hippopotamus rears up, its huge gaping mouth bristling with fearsome looking tusks… the river is the Derwent, very close to where Derby now stands – and the time is 120,000 years ago.

The land we all walk upon has been under the sea many times, and it will be submerged again

[Jacquetta Hawkes]

Entering a site of excavation, the forebears of the river Derwent emerge from the mud which has held them and which has shaped this land. Bones transcend into metal vertebrae as the tools of man; the extraction of iron, metal work, fire and alchemy, materialise across generations into hybrid beings preserved through 100,000 years.

In Venice you see a lot of canals, bridges and tourists. Usually at the same time. I’d say it’s even difficult to avoid all three in photographs, but why would you want to? After all, this is Vencie!
