 What is the Value of art?

 

Who decides it, and how?

What is the value of art?

 

YAMI-ICHI project started from this simple but important question. 

We challenge the current perception of art as a commodity in capitalistic art market by designing a space where various ways of valuing art can be exchanged more freely.

Team YAMI-ICHI produces international art event which mimics art auction employing non-monetary currency for transaction. In this auction, you cannot bid money....but you can bid anything such as skills, services and objects.

This event encourages young and emerging artists to rethink what their own values of their work are, so that they can communicate in a clearer way to the future clients/collaborators.

Nicola

Nicola Bergamaschi

I’m an Italian self-taught artist based in London. I work across traditional and digital media and love to experiment with techniques and materials. The work I am presenting is from a series focused on fictional characters in interior spaces where time seems to stand still. These characters are completely immersed in their own thoughts and are surrounded by various objects from fruit to plasticine to iconic design objects which further enhance the enigmatic quality of these moments. The two pieces are acrylic on canvas and form a one of a kind set. My upcoming series of works are inspired by this series but focuses solely on interior space and uses a combination of oil paintings and VR experience.

Michelle

Michelle Loa Kum Cheung

Recently relocating from Australia to the UK, Michelle Loa Kum Cheung's practice is the fragmentation and fabrication of past and place, real or imagined. Much of her imagery is derived from borrowed memories and second hand experiences, particularly of the natural world as a symbol of constant transience. Her art is a response to the artist's own dislocation from her cultural heritage, and her identity as an Australian with a Chinese Mauritian background. Loa Kum Cheung's practice is largely focused on painting and two-dimensional works and in her current practice, Loa Kum Cheung favours the raw materiality of wood and paper as a base, due to its permeability under heat.

The artwork up for offer

A pyrographic drawing on layered paper - a "Landscape Anatomy" drawing - developed over the course of the event

Exciting Offers for michelle

  • A unique and exciting exhibition space, in this country or a different one
  • To teach me a new skill or a learning course
  • Donation to Headway East London, a charity organisation supporting people affected by brain injury

Jing Tan

Jing is a Chinese artist currently doing her graduation from Royal College of Art. Her works are centred around the concepts of absurdity and reality. Exploring these, leads to questioning the boundaries of reality and normality. Her artistic practice includes a vast repertoire of media, from mixed-media, textile, sculpture to creating interactive objects and paintings.  Jing offers the viewer an opportunity to experience ordinary things in a new light through her artworks which are inspired by everyday objects and re-contextualized. Her artistic language also includes a great deal of humour, absurdity and irrationality. She is particularly interested in dissecting convention and the properness of an object in order find a way to make it playful and disruptive. 

Past exhibition: 2015: Shanghai Dongliang  “This Anagenesis specie is ___________ ?”

Website: www.jingtan.world

The artwork for offer:

  1. A new painting using my resin layering technique

Sarah Hill

Sarah Hill completed MA Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art in 2016, and her work focuses on drawing and performance.

The 2D works being auctioned were made just before Sarah started her MA, and are introspective, obsessive and have internalised anxiety.  However, thanks to her supportive peer environment on the MA she was able to come out of her shell and express herself in a new way through performance, in which her anxieties and obsessiveness came out in a much more explicit way, of which she now wishes to continue as her practice for the foreseeable future.

 

The artwork up for offer

A selection of framed drawings and collages

  • Practical offers: Make me some business cards, Teaching DIY skills, Use of a studio space or residency etc...
  • Artistic offers: Something inspiring for new artworks, Offer to test out performance ideas, an artwork or materials etc...

Anta Germane Portrait_1.jpg

Anta Germane

Anta is a sculpture and installation artist with particular interest in light installations, site specific work and public spaces. After spending a couple of years in London, she started exploring the themes of contemporary city and its relationship to industrial history. Looking for various repetitive patterns in urban areas and using them as a basis for prints, light boxes, sculptures and installations she explores how mass production is intertwined with the fabric of the city and our lives on a level that goes beyond consumer products. “The Net” uses architectural line patterns from housing estates, looking at council flats in particular.

The artwork up for offer

  • A mixed media paper light box
  • A mixed media painting on paper.

Exciting Offers for anta

  • Teach a special skill
  • A space for experimental work or exhibiting 
  • A day trip/adventure/activity

Team YAMI-ICHI (闇市)

Sachiko Osawa started a self-initiated project [YAMI-ICHI] in 2015 as part of her postgraduate project, with a passion to design a place in which various ways of valuing art can be exchanged freely among artists and the public. Team YAMI-ICHI members then gathered in 2016 to realise the idea. The idea of subversive art auction has gone though trial runs in both London and Tokyo, and now Team YAMI-ICHI is holding their debut event in Shimokitazawa. Sachiko envisions a development of this project as an international art event, which implements its core vision across different cities and countries. Team is now preparing for London YAMI-ICHI in May 2017.
