Museo Nivola presents the first institutional solo exhibition in Italy of Sarah Entwistle, comprising of an entirely new body of work that includes tapestries, objects and 2D works.
The exhibition, You should remember to do those things done before that have to be done again, curated by Alfredo Cramerotti, borrows its title from a love letter written in the mid 1960’s by Sarah Entwistle’s grandfather and fellow architect, Clive Entwistle (1916-1976), a contemporary of Costantino Nivola.
For the artist, a daily ‘remembering’ has been the practice of calibrating time and place through the collection of discarded objects and material fragments. In recent years this ritual has started to glitch into the historicity of her grandfather’s archive around which her work orientates. Approaching its contents as mutable allows the artist to continually revise and reconstruct new narrative lines. Objects are exchanged into it, and pieces extracted out. In this often-confronting process of merging biographies Entwistle feels a continual tussle for proprietorship as the boundary of a lived history being ruptured.
