Goya Curtain is pleased to present “So on and so forth”, an exhibition by Tokyo based artist Joel Kirkham. Kirkham will present a selection of new works based on casts, imprints and translations of discarded packaging and everyday materials.

“As in rites of passage, one can discern in making the three phases of separation, in which the material is removed from its former life, of transition, in which it is treated in the seclusion of the workshop, and of reincorporation into the settings of its subsequent career.”
