In January London-based artist Ami Clarke travelled to Tokyo to
install two video works in The Container, a gallery space located in a
hairdressing salon in Nakameguro. Whilst in Japan she also launched her
free of charge publication “UNPUBLISH”, which can be picked up at the
exhibition, and delivered a talk at Konno Hachiman Shrine (January 25),
mainly discussing her passion for diagrams, her preoccupation with how
the cosmos functions, and past and present working practice.

Central St Martin's Fine Art Grad Show
Dazed speaks to a few of the most talented Art & Design students at the prestigious London college
Central St Martins College of Art and Design has a reputation
spanning decades, boasting an alumni that includes filmmaker Mike
Leigh, Paul Simonon of the Clash, author Richard Millward, Hussien
Chalayan, Lucien Freud and Faris Badwan of The Horrors. But the focus
this time is on the Fine Art MA. Founded by Joanna Greenhill, the show
marks the end of an era in two ways since this was Greenhill last show
as head of the department and also the last one before the college
relocates to Kings Cross in autumn 2011. Josh Baum, Ami Clarke and Funa
Ye were three of the artists that stood out. Dazed was lucky enough to
catch up with them to find out what brought them to this point, and how
they might move forward.
