As part of the exhibition ‘Untitled: an exhibition of works in progress’ by Maria Amidu, iniva is offering have a very limited edition run of 7 digital prints by the artist as part of her series entitled ‘somewhere’ (2020). This is a very rare opportunity to own a work by Maria Amidu.

Untitled reveals Maria’s interest in materiality and resonates with the surroundings of the Stuart Hall library, where transmissions between people and objects are encouraged, more specifically paper. There is also the opportunity to delve further into Maria’s process through the exploration of books that inspire her own practice.

About the Artist

Maria Amidu’s artistic concerns are influenced by the complexities of the relational – between people, and between people and place. Through writing, printmaking, artist’s books, audio visual works and sometimes glassmaking she tries to substantiate what might be going on in collective situations, paying specific attention to what is hidden, obscured or unspoken.

The artist has developed projects with museums, galleries and other cultural organisations including: Watermarks (2021), Metal Culture; “Where are we?” (2020) Mid-Sussex, District Council; edge/threshold/brink (2018), Nuit Blanche Toronto; Act, Campaign, Petition, Reform, Lobby, Argue and Soit droit fait come est desire (Let it be done as it is desired) (2015)Houses of Parliament; Workforce (a work in progress) (2014), National Maritime Museum; a moment of your time (2013), People United in association with Turner Contemporary; Betty, Pat, Diane, Ivy, Lynette, Bonney (2011), Parramatta Artists’ Studios; Dolphin Loves Disco (and other favourite words) (2012), PEER; 21st Century Reporter (2005), Foundling Museum; Tribute (2002), Arnolfini and Bristol Royal Children’s Hospital; Finders, Keepers (2001), Horniman Museum & Gardens; and …a moment caught in three dimension(s) (1999), 198 Contemporary Arts & Learning. Her work is in several public and private collections including the Parliamentary Archives (UK), V&A, Arnolfini Collection Trust, and Limerick National Drawing Collection.

Maria studied glass and ceramics at West Surrey College of Art and Design, Farnham and the Royal College of Art, London. She is currently undertaking doctoral research  in the School of Arts & Humanities at the Royal College of Art and the title of her project is Making that remembers: a correspondence between emotion and material.
