Philip Core

I am currently working with the documentary filmmaker, Adam Low, in trying to track down as many as possible of the paintings and drawings of the artist, Philip Core, who died of AIDS in 1989,iin the hope that it might be possible to put together enough material for an exhibition. In particular, we are interested in locating the conversation pieces which were exhibited at Francis Kyle’s Gallery in 1989 in an exhibition ‘Pieces of Conversation’ which included The Chance Meeting on an Operating Table of a Sewing Machine and an Umbrella: Andy Warhol and Marcel Duchamp, now held by the Arts Council (copyright):-

At the time, such literary and photographic work was deeply unfashionable, but we feel that it could be a good moment to reconstruct his career. Not least, we are hoping to identify someone who got in touch with me fifteen or twenty years ago who had a collection of his paintings in store – from memory somewhere in south-east London, in Bexley, Bromley or Beckenham.

Any help with this project, still in its early stages, would be greatly appreciated.
