About the event
Join fine art perfumer Michael Borkowsky for the Private View of Perfume as Practice - his solo exhibition at Asylum Gallery, Wolverhampton, on 15th June 2019 from 6-9pm
Perfume as Practice will house a number of bespoke perfumes, each a portrait of another artist. Michael creates these perfume portraits by asking artists 'why do you make art?' He then uses scent design and visual embellishment to respond to the response received.
The aim of the exhibition is to reveal the capacity perfumery has for contemporary art and how scent can be a viable and meaningful mode of communication.
During the private view Michael will be on hand to chat to, and he will provide an artist's talk to reveal some of the thoughts, desires and processes that drive Perfume as Practice. Refreshments will also be available.
Entry is free and everyone is welcome. Michael hopes to see you there!
