‘will it get some wind for the sailboat
and it could get for it is
it could get the railroad for these workers
and it could be where it is
it could franky, it could be franky
it could be very fresh and clean
it could be a balloon
all these are the days my friends
and these are the days my friends’

Loosely focusing around themes of history of location, archaeology and craft, ‘These are the days my friends’ brings together a diverse group of works by artists living and working outside London. In 2019, Kupfer responds to theme of ‘interdependence’ by extending an invitation to Margate-based artist Hannah Lees, to guest curate an exhibition that expands the space’s roster of exhibited artists, encompassing her own artistic and intellectual network. Lees has previously shown at Kupfer in the group exhibition ‘Amaranthine’ (2018), curated by fellow artist Dan Coopey. In this context, interdependence is understood as the often invisible or undocumented threads that draw artists together, a particular kind of affinity that escapes art-historical discourses and emerges in unpredictable, surprising ways.
