About the work

A robin in your house means you need to rethink your relationship. It may be that most problems in your relationship may be solved with love and kindness, but if you believe something is not right, then it may be so and it is time to leave that relationship. Never try to keep a robin inside your home, especially if it wants to leave. A red robin tapping at a window can be looked upon as a sign of death in the family (https://www.worldbirds.org/robin-symbolism/).

About the artist:

Born Farnham 1980, Juliette Blightman lives and works in Berlin. Graduated from MA Fine Art at UAL Byam Shaw at Central St Martins (2007); and BA Fine Art at Byam Shaw School of Art (2004).

Since 2005 Blightman has been making portraits, whether they are of someone’s toilet, someone’s face or of her own daughter. Blightman’s methods of research draw on her experience as an artist and emerge as a response to the lived experience, whilst investigating the boundaries of physical and mental space, creative production, and gender. She is particularly fascinated by the inside/outside and the ambiguity between what is a private experience and what is made public.

Selected exhibitions include The Koln Concert, Kölnischer Kunstverein, Cologne (2020); Prologue, Arcadia Missa, London (2020); Wagnis der Öffentlichkeit, Halle für Kunst, Lüneburg (2020); A Carpet For Your Somersaults, Fons Welters Galerie, Amsterdam (2020); Maskulinitäten, Bonner Kunstverein, Kölnischer Kunstverein and Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf (2019); Familienbande, Museum Ludwig, Cologne (2019); Femme Maison, FELIX GAUDLITZ, Vienna (2019); This One’s For You, Maureen Paley hosting FELIX GAUDLITZ, London (2019); RELATIONS, O Townhouse, Los Angeles (2018/19); going to go out now, Western Front, Vancouver (2018); Nightshift, Fine Art Sydney (2017/18); Loved an Image, Fons Welters Galerie, Amsterdam (2020); Extimacy, Kunsthalle Bern, Berne (2016); holding one’s own in an unfinished system, Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe (2015); Eden Eden Eden, Karma International, Los Angeles (2015); Come inside, bitte, Isabella Bortolozzi Galerie, Berlin (2015); and Gerry Bibby/Juliette Blightman, KUB Kunsthalle Bregenz (2014).

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July. However, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Bid Increments

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

£500 increments for bids of £5,000 plus

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
