The Art Events to visit this week from Art Map London

WEEK: 31st March – 6th of April

There are loads of art events such as private views, artists talks, and screenings happening around London, and often it is impossible to choose where to go and what to see. To help you with the choice Jenny Judova from Art Map London will be advising on what events seem worth attending during the week.

TUESDAY 1 APRIL
CGP London Café Gallery and CGP London Dilston Grove, 6:30-8:30 private view Mark Titchner solo show
CGP London has, for the very first time, commissioned a single artist to present works across it’s two venues. Mark Titchner’s practise spans a number of media including digital print, wall drawing, video, sculpture and installation. Titchner will present a new series of wall drawings specifically conceived for Cafe Gallery. His practise explores systems of belief, both secular and spiritual, often focusing on the marginalized, discredited or forgotten ideologies and objects we place our faith in.

WEDNESDAY 2 APRIL
Standpoint Gallery, 6:30pm talk/performance by Laura Reeves 
Laura Reeves explores the commonality of nostalgia and experience. More often than not Laura directly situates herself within the work, using humour and pathos to consider notions of sentimentality. The works take the form of presentations and performance, printed matter and photography to mediate a memory or story.
For her event Laura will use objects, text and projection to consider her practice within the context of Standpoint, and her experience of the residency. Laura will also discuss the new ways in which her writing informs her practice.

Chisenhale Gallery, 7pm artist talk ‘Why the clock is to time what laminate flooring is to trees’
Cathy Haynes introduces her research project, Stereochron Island, for the Chisenhale Gallery Victoria Park Residency. Drawing on ideas from anthropology to astrophysics, and the skill of telling time through shadows and birdsong, Haynes argues that the Park protects a richer and more layered experience of time than the ‘mono’ time of the mechanical clock.

Stour Space Gallery, 7-11pm private view Sara Lofwander ‘Dinosaraus’
Sara says: “The exhibition DINOSARAUS features two of my greatest loves, freedom and nature. FREEDOM: Being naked in nature has always made me feel free and relaxed. As a photographer I wanted to capture this feeling of being free in images, so 3 years ago I started taking naked self-portraits on a trip to Alaska and I have been doing it ever since. NATURE: I want to make nature a more important and real element in my work for this exhibition. How? By bringing an element of real nature to the photos. The last three years I have experimented with scanned pieces of flowers and plants on top of photographs. This is what I am doing for this exhibition. The result will be a mix of free expression and fresh, beautiful nature – reflecting my vision and my aim with the series – to make people care more about nature.”
