Click to enlargeJONNA KINA : BELOW ZERO ART PRIZE
Mar 7 - Apr 22, 2018
Artist in Residence with Beaconsfield January-March 2018
Jonna Kina’s gallery studio is open to the public on Thursdays 2-5pm and Saturdays 2-5pm and by appointment.
 
Emerging from Finland into the international arena, JONNA KINA is the first recipient of BELOW ZERO – a new contemporary art prize for emergent Finnish artists launched in 2017.
 
Stimulated by a relationship between anarchism and the marble industry and a desire to work with sculpture and film, Kina set off to research the quarries of Carrara during the winter of 2017/18. She became fascinated with the structures of this landscape and the techniques of working with stone.

THE ORIGIN OF LIFE BY DEAN KENNING
Mar 20 - Apr 28, 2019
Dean Kenning explores political and philosophical material through kinetic sculptures, videos and diagrams, often employing DIY, allegorical and autodidactic methods and modes of representation to engender visceral, uncanny and humorous encounters. For Beaconsfield, Kenning brings the beautiful old creaking floors of the former Lambeth Ragged School into play with an interactive work where random symphonies are triggered by the movement of visitors in an automated parody of creative autonomy and vitalist impulses.
