Jealous welcomes back Dave Buonaguidi this September for an exhibition of cartographical curiosities. Maps typically point you in the right direction, however Buonaguidi’s Maps are more dynamic for they act as an efficacious reminder of our hopes, dreams and lustful desires to travel the world with loved ones.
‘You are Here’ is a solo exhibition of carefully procured vintage maps detailing locations all over the world. Each map has had a previous life of its own which can be seen through every tear, crease and stain, acting as a reminder of its once practical use. Buonaguid’s maps have been reinvented through his recognisable neon typography and bold statements. Each work is emblazoned with Buonaguidi’s wry and witty humor giving each map a new context and lease of life.
The works in the exhibition will be the biggest and best selection of reclaimed maps, with over a hundred works depicting of all corners of the globe. ‘You Are Here’ will transport you to the Californian deserts, the docks of Merseyside or even your own back door.
This body of work is individually unique and provides buyers with the opportunity to own a one-off piece by the artist. In a time where we are confined to the same four walls - allow this exhibition to transport you all over the world.
‘You are Here’ will run from 3rd – 27th September 2020 at Jealous North, 27 Park Road, London, N8 8TE
