Gallery 46 in Whitechapel is our new sister gallery to be used as Londonewcastle Project Space. The new space, established through the partnership of Martin J Tickner and Sean McLusky and Fruitmachine founders, Martin Bell & Wai Hung Young breaks fresh ground for the open-source, non-conformist curatorial approach Tickner and McLusky employed at their (rightly) notorious MEN Gallery, in Shoreditch.Housed in a pair of newly renovated Georgian houses in the grounds of Whitechapel Hospital, GALLERY 46 is set over 3 floors and 8 rooms and is a kaleidoscopic addition to Whitechapel’s burgeoning gallery scene and close by its artistic...→

F**k Off I Love You is a collaborative photographic project conceived by director Huse Monfaradi and realised in collaboration with photographer Dan Wilton.
Huse has directed acclaimed music videos for artists such as Arctic Monkeys and Razorlight, as well as commercials for brands such as Nike and Samsung. Dan is a portrait & fashion photographer, shooting editorial for creative publications such as VICE, TANK & 'SUP along with promo work for Universal Island, Red Bull & Smirnoff amongst others. He is known for his unposed and unobtrusive style resulting in honest and candid portraits.
The concept is simple – to capture the emotive and cathartic outburst of energy from swearing to camera – a freeze frame moment in mid action. Swearing is unarguably a hugely powerful tirade on the senses, not only for the person swearing but also for the person/people/object on the receiving end.
A personal and emotive project for both Huse & Dan, F**k Off I Love You combines a total of sixty of their friends, photographed on medium format film, in a homogenous portrait style for an exhibition, showcasing what will undoubtedly be a revealing and interesting range of facial characteristics and emotions ranging from anger to humour and perplexity.
Whereas normally one would search for flawlessness and beauty in conventional portraiture, imperfections and facial contortions will be the driving force behind this project. Undoubtedly images will be captured that are far from flattering – eyes closed, faces abnormally crumpled. Therein lies the charm behind F**k Off I Love You.
