Mar 16 - Apr 29, 2018
We are delighted to announce Kalliopi Lemos' second solo show, All is to Be Dared, curated by Christian Oxenius. The Greek-born, London-based sculptor, painter and installation artist unveils a new body of work investigating the essence of desire and pain.
Lemos elaborates, "At this very interesting and important time in history, with women celebrating 100 years of having the right to vote in the UK, while having summoned the courage to talk about abuse and seek justice, I use my new body of work to introduce the magnificent verses of Sappho, the celebrated ancient Greek poetess."

JAMES OSTRER : JOHNNY JUST CAME
Jun 8 - Jul 22, 2018
In 2016 world-renowned curator Azu Nwagbogu invited James to show his 2014 Wotsit All About series in Lagos, Nigeria. Naturally, Nwagbogu expected Ostrer to come along with his fetishised junk food portraits that had warned the west of over-consumption. Ostrer’s reaction in his own words was, “instant excitement for an ambition I never knew I had. However, this quickly turned into nervousness and suspicion”. He states, “I experienced perfectly and more clearly than ever before how the pervasive impact of racial cultural conditioning towards otherness affects us in terms of human divide through fear.” Even while aboard the plane to West Africa, the flight attendant amplified this sense of worry, warning him of the dangers of Lagos, explaining that the airline staff only travelled under armed guard.
