 “No alternative” is an exhibition of art work taking place from 13 to 27 December atUnit 3 project space, ASC studio, Empson St. London E33LT. Dedicated artist Jose Pindianis presenting his art installations for art lovers appreciation.

Jose describes himself as a multi-disciplinary artist. His practice is underpinned by ideas about the intermediate psychological space. There is a gap between one's desire for a sense of self at peace and the tantalising power of fear-evoking objects which also occupy the inner residence of the individual and social self. The experience of this un/conscious conflict can be understood as a result of the movement of time through the physicality of each present moment. Whether creating studio based painting, sculpture or installation, Jose's work is intended to have a visceral impact on the viewer.

Jose was born in Kerala, India, after his training in fine art in 1988 he started his career in advertising agencies. In 2003 he moved in the UK and received his fine art honours degree in 2010 from the University of Bolton, England.

The exhibition's center piece is a three and a half meter tall, thin linear sculpture, titled: Infuse. The piece might remind us of Romanian artist, Constantin Brancusi’s endless column, which symbolises the “Infinite Sacrifice” of the Romanian soldiers. Similarly, Jose’s work is a reflection on the individual’s endless responses to fear, the space it is occupied, as evoked in the public places. 

Fear is an emotional response to a particular object, interaction or incident. Jose explores how fear is about the movement of projected thoughts. For Infuse, Jose used disposable styrofoam cups that are commonly used in public places. The cups have been painted with acrylic black lines and the thickness of the lines on the cups gradually increases as the stack descends towards the floor; eventually also spreading around onto the floor and generating feelings of being engulfed.

Unholy, is another large piece work which has used more than seven thousand thermo cups and hundreds of plastic cockroaches. It is a reflection on fear as experienced in a city life. In recent times the many reported terror activities have generated immense fear in peoples’ mind. Most terror attacks have happened in cities and thus city living seems a more vulnerable situation than ever. Terror activities divide, kill or leave people in a mental disorder (trauma).

Jose's intention is to create a physical and mental movement in the viewer. A kind of ritualistic, movement around the work, look up and down and to be engaged fully in the work.  This movement is in response to the artwork within a confined space opening to negotiate the space, their secret fears; facilitating an objectifying and mirroring of the mind’s fear.

Jose states: Social issues are my big concern. I want to respond to what is happening around me; it is the only way to console me. 

He is regularly participating art exhibitions and exhibited in museums and contemporary art galleries throughout England. Some of his work can be found in private art collections. He currently lives in East London and works from ASC studio Bow.
