ROLAND CARLINE WITH COLLABORATORS : 4 LIVE WORKS
Nov 16, 2019 - Jan 12, 2020
Roland Carline has been working in social work and applied arts in community settings since 1998. His commission with Goldsmiths CCA is the result of a long-term engagement, and sees Carline present four live works that manifest across the span of the exhibition, and feature his signature props, costumes and ‘loose parts’. The work moves through the register of humour and absurdity, celebrates collusion, and forges an embodied mode of spectatorship that sits with ambiguity and discomfort. For Carline the performers are at the heart of the process, so that the work itself can fall apart and reconstitute in new and unforeseen ways. Carline’s approach is to retreat into the work, allowing collaborators to take the lead – disrupting prevailing ideas of hierarchy within the artists’ practice.
 
Collaborators include Francis Majekodunmi, Ambient Jam Collective, Meet Me at the Albany, The Rachel Macmillan Nursery, and Deptford Freestylers.
 
This project is in partnership with Entelechy Arts and Deptford X.

Feb 21 - Aug 9, 2020
Group show including works by Nairy Baghramian, Carlotta Bailly-Borg, Becky Beasley, Gareth Cadwallader, Nina Canell, Michael Dean, Theaster Gates, David Hammons, Marie Lund, Vladimir Nabokov, Virginia Overton, Lucy Skaer, Renee So, Kerry Tribe.
 
Transparent Things uses Chapter 1 of Vladimir Nabokov’s novel as a script. In this brief text objects exert uncanny agency, pulling us back anecdotally and materially into their past, and catalysing radical perceptual shifts, lending itself to an exploration of contemporary sculpture.
