Part of Camden history

New Zealander Francis Upritchard, 33, is one of 3 artists and designers included in a Camden Arts Centre (CAC) exhibition curated by British artist and Turner prize-winner Simon Starling. In ‘Never the Same River (Possible Futures, Probable Pasts)’, Starling brings together works from London’s CAC shows over the past 5 years, the result being both a homage to the gallery and a meditation on artspaces in general. Put broadly, Starling’s take is this: however you cut it, showing art means showing history. ‘Never the Same River’ runs through February 2. Upritchard won the Walters Prize in 26. Last year, her book, Every Colour By Itself was launched at New Zealand House in London, where she lives. Every Colour By Itself is a visual journey through 39 of Upritchard’s modelled figures. She is represented by Kate MacGarry in London and Ivan Anthony in Auckland.
