Gigi Giannuzzi, the maverick publisher of Trolley Books
and more recently TJ Boulting gallery, was recently
diagnosed with cancer of the pancreas. This is devastating
news for many who know him and respect his work as one
of the bravest and most beautiful of creative forces,
publishing through Trolley many important stories
through photography, reportage and contemporary art,
but also personally, as a rare and one-off crazy spirit.
To support him now, as he has helped and recognised many over the
years, artists who know Gigi have donated their work for a special
auction to help raise money for him. The funds will go towards alternative
cancer treatments which he is currently seeking at a private clinic near
Munich, Germany. The auction will feature works by many major artists,
as well as several who have worked directly with Gigi over the years.
In particular Polly Morgan and Mat Collishaw have been the driving
force behind the artists and auction itself, and Sarah Lucas, who has
given over her 'situations' space for the night, has hence given the
name of the auction - SITUATION GIGI.
