Last week I opened a solo show at The Cube at ASC Croydon in London. It will run until the 28th of June 2023.
In this exhibition I am showing works that reflect how chronic and ongoing states of pain, struggle, distress and many other experiences can shift the sense we have of our own bodies. More than that, they make us rethink what a body even is and how human beings strive to feel or not feel it. The exhibited artworks emerge out of a dialogue with this shifting sense and wonderment.
Rather than a result, the works are a trace of a process of creation. This process goes back and forth between sensing my body in movement and composing imaginary landscapes. Part of this process is also being in conversation with people, friends and experts. The emerging landscapes form anatomies which negotiate: tension and release, strength and softness, tangible and intangible parts of myself and others, the present moment and moments to come.
The exhibition is connected to a show and performance happening at June 3rd/4th at ASC Project Space. For more information click here (link opens in a new tab).
Some information about The Cube
ASCs The Cube was installed in its Croydon Grafton Rd studios in 2020. It is a bespoke exhibition structure that is a sister space to its original M2 gallery in Peckham, London. M2 Gallery was designed and created by the late artist/architect Ken Taylor and still has monthly exhibitions. ASCs The Cube has used this original template and looks to showcase new bespoke work from both artists from its Croydon studios and elsewhere.
