Facebook event in Rome
Exhibition of ‘The Mondrian Fan Club at Studio.ra in Rome‘ by David Medalla and Adam Nankervis for the inauguration of The London Biennale 2016 (on the First on May).
Mondrian Fan Club History
The Mondrian Fan Club was founded by David Medalla and Adam Nankervis in New York City in 1992, being born of Medalla’s first propulsion of ‘The Flying Mondrians’ in 1991 with Medalla as founder and Nankervis as co-founder (telekinisthetically, Medalla then in NYC and Nankervis in Aarhus Denmark), establishing a collaboration between the two artists living and moving nomadicly around the world. Who, when meeting in different locals globally creatied, and continue to create collaborative performances and installations, drawings and photographic impromptus, in homage to the artist Piet Mondrian.
Mondrian who lived in NYC, was the inspiration, and New York City’s back drop, where Medalla and Nankervis met at the Chelsea Hotel in the winter of 1990, inspired actions primararily in the city, and over time, Medalla and Nankervis created the individual letters pertaining to the names or specific locales within different cities where they would, and do meet, to create a letter, an airborne piece global graffitti, which eventually will complete the sentence Medalla and Nankervis have started to formulate since the exhibition, The Secret History of The Mondrian Club, Gee Street London 1994.
Given the ethereal nature of the actions of The Mondrian Fan Club, much is lost in archiving, both films, and images are scarce, but have now been searched and sorted to continue in creating the sentence created before the exhibition The Secret of History of the Mondrian Fan Club.
The Mondrian Fan Club, Medalla and Nankervis’s interventions travel time and space and meet at specific junctures, which are captured for their ethereal position and action in time and place, and exhibited sparcely, in an invocation of the meeting points where the two artists have converged, and shared, and collaborated by inspiration of the environment in which they inhabit.
