Fat City: an Installation Performance by Bob Seng and Lisa Hein

10th-12th February 2017

“Fat City” refers to “Drop City”, TC Boyle’s novel about an idealized hippie future, where technical regression turns into a struggle for survival. The artists begin with a gallery, stripped of everything but its lights, and ask, “What would it take to light this space without them?” As haplessly as Drop Citizens, Hein and Seng challenge themselves to fuel a lamp from foraged natural sources. Boiling wax and grease, they succeed in primitive fashion, but also question the wisdom of forcing history backward.

Fragments: paintings, installation, and video projection by Valerie Bos

3rd-5th February 2017

The transformative power of nature and the imagination tussle playfully to create images and objects which become something other. Found objects that have been tumbled and tossed out by the sea - nature’s version of a ‘ready-made’- have been dematerialized and then rematerialized into other materials and medium. What is real, virtual (real or unreal?) and imagined are juxtaposed against each other using both traditional materials of a painter and newer digital technologies.

Remains of the Day: paintings by Rosie Lascelles

November 6 - 11 2015

Rosie Lascelles is a young emerging artist based in London. Her work evokes light fading on an imperial age, in pools of quirky ironies and strange harmonies, adrift in out of the way places on the edge of a receding era. Her impressions have been taken from extensive travel in South Asia and the Tibetan Plateau, and a recent residency in Nepal.
