‘STOP, LOOK, LISTEN, FEEL’ Affordable Art Fair with Curator Becca Pelly-Fry


Affordable Art Fair Battersea 7-10 March 2019

For the spring edition of the Affordable Art Fair, Becca Pelly-Fry was asked to curate the Platform Projects section as an external curator.


Becca Pelly-Fry: “I have invited 5 artists, from differing disciplines, to contribute work that is connected through ideas to do with place and memory, and how we relate to our environment.”



AF: Tell us about the artists you invited for the Platform Projects section at AAF?

Becca Pelly-Fry says :

“Scarlett Bowman takes inspiration from incidental arrangements of everyday objects, creating abstracted paintings and sculptures that carry recognisable but oblique references to place.

Rebecca Byrne makes large-scale, immersive paintings that take the viewer on a journey through her own memories.

Alice Irwin uses the language of childhood play to explore psychological questions and experiences.

Jeremy Knowles seeks the unexpected in his daily walks around his Berlin neighbourhood, capturing moments of colour that stand out from the gloom.

Alice Wilson places painted objects in the landscape to help audiences navigate, then brings them back into the urban environment bearing the traces of their previous incarnation, reconnecting nature and the man-made.”
