Private View Invitation – Perfume as Practice at Centrespace, Bristol

I would like to invite you all to the Private View of my upcoming Perfume as Practice exhibition at Centrespace, Bristol on Friday 4th October, 6-8pm.  




Perfume as Practice is an exhibition that looks at the artistic potential of perfumery and how it can be used to create portraiture. The exhibition will comprise 18 perfumes, each a portrait of another artist. These perfume portraits are achieved through a process that begins by asking artists the question ‘why do you make art?’ Then, through a method of intuition and investigation, I create a perfume relative to the answer received – capturing the essence of an artist.


The exhibition will be supported by visual livery pertaining to the theme of ‘Voyage’, has been designed by the artists I have made perfume portraits for; resulting in a collaborative effort that builds a network of artists. The exhibition promises to subvert your expectations of scent, perfume and portraiture in general!



The artists involved are:

Jenna Fox

During the Private View Michael will be on hand to chat to, as will some of the artists involved. Michael will provide an artist talk providing some thoughts and insights into Perfume as Practice. Refreshments will also be provided. The event is free and everyone is welcome.



Perfume as Practice is supported by Arts Council England.
