After a pause due to the Cover emergency, Quartz Studio means to rethink itself by announcing the achievement of a new formula of confrontation and collaboration with various subjects (curators, art historians, educators, etc.), who across the time expressed and demonstrated common intentions in respect of a specific project.
On the occasion, three installations have been produced. The original project for the exhibition “Cool Your Jets” – writes the critic Marco Scotti – was born from a conversation between Jonathan Monk and Liam Gillick, in which to the questions posed by the latter related to themes of contemporary sociology, the former replied with quotations from the world of football. In Monk’s continuous interactions between conceptual art and autobiography, football regularly recurs, starting with his beloved Leicester City Football Club.
