Proudly presenting my new exhibition:
Merging the boundaries between music and art Lobster and Pearls reimagines this century’s hit songs through illustration. Fascinated by Wim Wenders’s collection of polaroids L&P was inspired to explore how the two most nostalgic artefacts of the 90s era – mix tape and polaroid – can sit together. Through her work, the artist explores what makes them the perfect mementos.
A cassette filled with carefully selected songs that one created for themselves, a BFF or a high school crush, if played today without doubt would bring the memories of the day it was first listened to. And a polaroid in the age where thanks to social media and a generation of over sharers photography has become over saturated to have and to hold a polaroid picture that cannot be ‘re-posted’ is something quite unique. It is all about capturing a moment in time.

Generally, a mixtape (… ) is a home-made compilation of music (… ) recorded in a specific order (…) Compilations may include a selection of favorite songs, or music linked by theme or mood, perhaps tailored to the tape’s intended recipient.
