Artist's Press Release:
With L'Ultima Sigaretta, Boutherin gives a glimpse into the idea of absence and departure, not as a beginning or end, but as a permanent state. It questions the shadow of the missing, the people and times left behind, as steady travelling companions and it attempts to depict the mandatory urge, tastes and bitterness, proper to the closing of an essential era.
A macabre collection of 15 pen on paper drawings, Boutherin hopes to challenge pre-existing concepts on the idea of human loss.
Born in Angers, France in 1981, Boutherinís drawings and paintings have been previously displayed in Paris and at the Karolyi Foundation in Hungary. LíUltima Sigaretta will be Boutherinís first solo exhibition in the United Kingdom.
L'Ultima Sigaretta is open to the public during shop opening hours (Monday - Saturday 10 am - 6 pm / Sunday 11 am - 5 pm) and continues until Sunday 15 November.
Original drawings from the exhibition will be on sale; for prices and availabity please contact the shop.
