BEN & MARTIN, aka BAM, presents the exhibition ‘GUAYOTA – The Vanishing of Light’ at the Tête Gallery Berlin on 7 Oct., 2022. Save the date. Follow the light.

The photographer team BAM presents an art project created with Creative Director Anna Berlin in Tenerife alongside commissioned work. The opening of ‘GUAYOTA – The Vanishing of Light’ will take place on Friday, 7 October starting at 7pm at the Tête Gallery (Schönhauser Allee 161A, 10435 Berlin). Also appearing is a hardcover book on the project which began at the beginning of 2022.

Guayota was the name of an evil demon who lived within the Mount Teide volcano in the mythology of the Guanches, the indigenous inhabitants of Tenerife. The primitive people once gave the volcano the name Echeyde, which means hell or home of the demon.

‘GUAYOTA – The Vanishing of Light’… “According to legend, GUAYOTA, a malevolent deity, kidnapped the sun and locked it up inside Teide, plunging the world into darkness. By praying to the god Achamán, humans could save the sun by locking GUAYOTA up inside Teide, instead. In this modernized version of the saga, GUAYOTA is still, to this day, trying to escape by deceiving humans. GUAYOTA uses hidden signs and objects like a mirror in an attempt to reopen Teide and cast darkness over the land once more.” BAM tells us.

Very Private? Exploring themes of sex, intimacy, gender and identity, this exhibition presents a selection of Duncan Grant’s recently discovered erotic drawings alongside responses by six contemporary artists – Somaya Critchlow, Harold Offeh, Kadie Sa

Two new exhibitions are opening at Charleston with the first ever showing of Duncan Grant’s erotic drawings alongside responses by six contemporary artists, and a solo presentation by Linder Sterling inspired by the history of Charleston and the Bloomsbury group.

Charleston is delighted to announce details of Very Private?, the first exhibition of Duncan Grant’s recently discovered erotic drawings, which will be shown for the first time alongside new contemporary responses by artists Somaya Critchlow, Harold Offeh, Kadie Salmon, Tim Walker, Alison Wilding, and Ajamu X. The exhibition will open alongside a new installation by artist Linder, Linder: A Dream Between Sleeping and Waking, which is a multimedia response both to the history of Charleston and the work of Duncan Grant.

Exploring themes of sex, intimacy, gender, and identity, Duncan Grant’s recently uncovered erotic drawings were produced during the 1940s and 50s, a period of persecution and oppression of queer bodies and culture from the authorities, when sex between men was still illegal in England. The drawings, long feared lost or destroyed, were donated to Charleston, Grant’s former home, in 2020.

A selection of over 40 of Grant’s drawings, of varying shapes and sizes, will be brought together alongside responses by contemporary artists. Photographer Tim Walker, who photographed Charleston for Italian Vogue in 2016, will create new works inspired by Grant’s erotic drawings. The artist, curator, archivist and activist Ajamu X is producing a series of photographs that reflect the different aspects of Grant’s work. ....



17 September 2022–12 March 2023
Charleston is based in the heart of the South Downs National Park in East Sussex, UK.
