Joseph Loughborough: The Anatomy of Strangers ‘A guilty conscience needs to confess’ at Old Vic Tunnels Private view Wednesday 13th June 2012

A work of art is a confession.’ – Albert Camus

The Future Tense in association with The Old Vic Tunnels are to present the first major London solo show by Joseph Loughborough.

This introspective, confessional corpus of work, developed over the last 12 months whilst living in self- imposed exile in Paris, speaks not only of mortal sins and desires, but also of fears and the acknowledgement of one’s own absurdity.

Working exclusively in charcoal and graphite, and at a much bolder scale, Loughborough has eschewed the vivid colour palettes seen in recent works in order to focus on the impulsive and expressive execution of line and form that has become his trademark.

On Saturday 16 June from midday, the public will have a unique opportunity to watch the artist at work as he creates the final piece from The Anatomy of Strangers series in-situ at The Old Vic Tunnels.
The Old Vic Tunnels provide the perfect backdrop for this intense and emotive exhibition, adding a foreboding sense of claustrophobia that perhaps echoes the artist’s own confrontation with the human condition.
To mark The Anatomy of Strangers, The Future Tense will publish a very limited new print edition by Joseph Loughborough. Toward the Infinite is the second result of an ongoing collaboration with world- renowned print studio, Thumbprint Editions, best known for working with artists such as Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin and Anish Kapoor.

Measuring 100 x 70cm, the print uses a traditional Polymer Gravure etching process to authentically reproduce the unique tones found in charcoal work.

The Anatomy of Strangers will open to the public at a launch reception from 6.30pm on Wednesday 13 June 2012.
