The Naming of Things

2021

Exhibition and publication, curated by Bryony Dawson

‘The artists in this exhibition use writing as both tool and material within moving-image, sculpture and sound in order to interrogate the act of naming: its desires, textures, moods and virtual spaces; but also its complex role in the performance and construction of selfhood.’

a thing that remembers itself

2021

Exhibition and publication, curated by Holly Rose O’Brien

‘The show and publication capture an ephemeral experience exploring memory as embodied, and yet more than the body, leaking and excessive, and encoded onto objects. Framed in a moment of excess, the show and publication use leftovers, residues, and waste, to pause on dim or fleeting memories. The space becomes a theatre for continual dress rehearsals, things held in a delicate balance begin to slip, rupture and blur, enacting the fragility of memory, feelings, and constructions of the self.”

“The publication traces the odyssey of rubbish and accompanies the exhibition. Writing is central to each artist’s practice and the publication includes creative writing from each artist on the themes of memory and longing.’
