Top 5 Art Exhibitions to see in March

Kenji Lim: Spend time not thinking about tomorrow @ IMT Gallery

How do other animals view the world? It’s something we can never truly imagine given how different creatures have evolved. It’s a concept that runs through Kenji Lim’s work where imagined shelled and furry creatures inhabit the plinths and cling to the railings of the stairs. While in his painting deep sea squat lobsters, which are normally suspended in water, appear to rain down from a magenta sky. Until 24 March. 

Peju Alatise: We came with the last rain @ Rele Gallery
The works of Peju Alatise look at both the innocence and wonder of children as well as Yoruba folklore around the rain and fertility – hence the many water and rain drop references throughout her works. It’s an impressive debut for this new and welcome addition to the Mayfair gallery scene. Until 23 March. 

Earth Monsters @ Sarabande
A chair and giant wall sculptures made from baling twine by Darcey Fleming (pictured) and Almudena Romero’s living portrait of her childhood friend who was a victim of domestic violence made using cress are two of the highlights in this nine woman exhibition in East London. All the artist’s works are on the theme of womanhood, the female body and the natural world. Until 13 March.

Drop Shadows by Oliver Projects @ Sims Reed
The botanical paintings of Katherine Jones, better known for her printmaking, and the terracotta figurative sculptures of Temsuyanger Longkumer are brought together by their joint inspiration from the natural world and its transformative power. Despite the artist’s differing backgrounds and practises the works complement each other, placed across the walls and shelves of the gallery space. Until 14 March.

Unveiling Abstractions @ Hypha Studios, Euston Tower

A hard spiky sculpture by Annie Trevorah inspired by plant-life and imagining a world where they take the world back from humans and a soft fleshy work by Damaris Athene are two of the highlights in this exhibition of 17 female abstract artists. Lisa Price makes her work using handmade pigments and Eleni Maragaki breaks a landscape into pieces that must be fit back together to reform the image in two more highlights. Until 30 March.
