The 2022 edition of LONDON CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR represented a forum for direct exchange of ideas and contacts between collectors, artists, photographers, designers and art professionals. The art fair featured paintings, sculptures, photography art, installations, video art and live performance focused on the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary time. Artists, architects and designers have been invited to be inspired by the magical power of London, exploring the connection between desires, needs, fears through rituals that bring humankind to change, to transform and to evolve their inner world.

The exhibition opened its doors at THE LINE Contemporary Art Space on March 10 in the afternoon, and it gathered lots of visitors interested in discovering the great works selected for this edition. There were the collages made by Maciej Pamieta, from Poland, that perfectly related to the concept of the event, focused on the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/social/urban structures in contemporary time. The artists showed a series of 10 pieces in which human figures, abstract geometries and natural shapes blend together creating unexpected scenarios and futuristic landscapes. Even the subjects of the paintings of Françoise Jetteur seem to come from a parallel world. The men and women depicted remember us more as kind monsters and aliens than human beings, with their stretched bodies and fluctuant arms and legs. For Sussanne Hoiberg, instead, art is the main way to really express how she feels by realizing images that speak her language. “Creating, painting, contemplating life, and seeing the brighter side of things” is her motto, and she knows a painting is complete only when there is an immense feeling of happiness & joy.

Moving from figurative works to abstract ones, Christin Behrend participated with her series “Above the clouds”, which is a triptych (the 3 number stands for the Trinity) that shows the sky as a very strong symbol for hope. The painter combines experimental and expressive painting styles, and the results are emotionally charged abstract canvases, whose symbolically atmosphere allows a positive view of life. In Suzanne C. Nagy‘s paintings titled “Dry forest series”, we can see an interesting mix between traditional art and technology; her works represent a poetic contemplation about the environmental consequences of the industry. Indeed, she is an American environmental artist and she works also with recycled and raw materials, such as tree trunks, plexiglass, lightboxes, light panels and rubbers. The theme of the exhibition has been also well analyzed through the video works selection projected during the exhibition, which includes video artists like Christina Sirmons, Darko Trajanović, Maggie Mullin O’Hara, Magdalene Carmen and Lucely Luz-Luce Vargas Preciado.
