THURSDAY 13 APRIL

Preview: The World Made New

6:00 PM – 7:00 PM @ Pi Artworks London, 55 Eastcastle Street, London, W1W 8EG

The World Made New draws resonances in the work of five international artists (based in London, Glasgow, Cornwall, and Istanbul), through personal myths of history and landscape. Often departing from superficial reality, the diverse narrative practices of Sovay Berriman, Ilana Halperin, Iz Öztat, Lindsay Seers, and Michelle Williams Gamaker find another kind of truth in relation to land and time.

 

FRIDAY 14 APRIL

Preview: Storyboard

6:00 PM – 9:00 PM @ LUBOMIROV / ANGUS-HUGHES, 26 Lower Clapton Rd, London, E5 0PD

Paintings are viewed in a moment and then slowly unfold along different timelines as we continue to look and before they are hung in our memories. When viewing a moving image or reading a book there is a chronological time frame, however, in painting, looking can fold in on itself and back out; layers of meaning are accrued whilst looking at looking.
