Swansea based artist Fern Thomas has been invited to show her video work Divination (Near Qi Ming Temple, Xiamen), 2011 at The Curator’s Egg, Altera Pars, Anthony Reynolds Gallery, London. Fern’s work was selected for this group exhibition by Karen MacKinnon, Exhibitions Curator, Glynn Vivian Art Gallery.

From the Anthony Reynolds Press Release…

“Back in 1994, a year in which the end of the world was confidently predicted by Jehova’s Witnesses and the first women priests were ordained by the Church of England, a year which also saw the launch of the National Lottery, Anthony Reynolds Galleryorganised a large group exhibition in a very small space and called it The Curator’s Egg. Around 120 stalwarts of theLondon art world were invited to choose one work of art without restriction for exhibition in the gallery, and given four days to do it. The only condition being that it had to be by a living artist and that it would fit through the door. The idea was to present an instant snapshot of individual ‘curatorial’ preference, a clashing visual cacophony of catholic taste, good, bad or ugly, representing the personal likes of the art professionals of the time”

The Curator’s Egg, Altera Pars runs from 2 February until 3 March 2012, for further information go to
