Hugh McElveen is presenting his first solo exhibition in bio.space 033 after a trip to Italy where he documented the organic olive oil production process of Lino Olivieri. However, during that process, something entirely different caught his attention: the old sprung mattresses recycled as garden defences against the onslaught of wildlife. The beds function shifts “from passive support of our relaxation to an active defence against our intruders.”

Hugh puts together a compelling body of work, between figuration and abstraction, full of Smithonian reflections and reminiscent of the Japanese aesthetics of wabi-sabi. By framing his prints in metal, Hugh will attempt at recreating the ‘fortified borders’ of the Italian horticultural landscape, while Lino himself will bring the last missing ingredient, the sun, as he will offer tastings of his world class production.
