Darling Pearls & Co. is a Ltd. Company registered in the UK (January 2018) but also a cat that provides Creative Arts services. She partners with businesses, organisations and institutions producing art exhibitions and events for educational purposes but also, eventually, for the profit of the artists who participate to exhibits produced by not relying exclusively on sales. An example would be Darling’s Attic, a self funded residency & project space.
Darling’s Attic [ Darling’s home ] is located in a building which is one of four Edwardian Mansion blocks at Rowhill Road, Clapton (London Borough of Hackney), built c. 1901-04 by W. Andrews of Wood Green and designed by Alfred Bedborough, in a Jacobean Revival style. These blocks which are three storeys and constructed of red brick were locally listed before 2012. Darling’s Attic is a share of freehold property and it is the result of a roof conversion occurred in 2015.
At Darling’s Attic the company produced solo show art installations in collaboration with artists. These exhibitions were, prior to the current pandemic, visited by travellers who took time living at the flat while also creating funds for the following residencies.
In October 2018, Darling Pearls & Co started an ongoing partnership with the independent contemporary curatorial platform IFAC Arts (NY, Athens).
On 1 January 2021, the company launched Darling’s Only Fans for video art (paused) & in May 2021 Darling’s Vimeo On Demand with the aims of gradually building an accessible video art archive and paying artists on a monthly basis. Subscription is free & the account offers a mix on pay per view and free content.
