For immediate release.

Justina Kochansky at The New Artist Fair
Old Truman Brewery, London E1 6QR
8-10 September 2017

Justina Kochansky will be showing her newest eggshell based artwork at The New Artist Fair. The Summer Exhibition will take place 8-10 September 2017, at the Old Truman Brewery off Brick Lane in London. Over 100 artists will be selling their work directly to the public; a private viewing will be held on Friday from 18:00 to 21:00, and free entry will take place Saturday and Sunday from 12:00 to 18:00.

Justina's work is a combination of found objects, surface techniques, and the careful handling of eggs. Ranging in size from three centimetres tall to five meters in length, her work explores the balance between strength and delicacy while challenging the notion that art must be big to be noticed.

Making tiny worlds and figures has long been a passion for Justina Kochansky. After studying Wayang Kulit (shadow puppetry) in Bali, she has gone on to perform puppet shows in places ranging from Wilton's Music Hall to Abney Park Cemetery. For five years she ran a sculptural webcomic called Articulate Matter, making tiny vignettes for a cast of sea creatures three times per week. Her current work with eggshells is a result of an artist residency at the Rensing Center and their focus on “ecology, economy, and creativity.”
