PETER FRASER: MATHEMATICS
Jun 6 - Sep 16, 2018
For his exhibition at Camden Arts Centre, Fraser presents his most recent body of work Mathematics. Reflecting on the idea that time, space, and everything within it, can be described mathematically, Fraser brings together a series of photographs of seemingly disparate and unrelated objects and encounters – including still lives, landscapes and portraiture. Through their oblique juxtaposition and his almost analytical focus, he draws attention to the underlying patterns and forces which shape the world and our perception of it, as well as the systems of belief through which we try to understand and describe it. In this way his work might be seen to draw our attention to the spectacular and interconnected nature of everything that surrounds us, from the sublime to the mundane.

Apr 12 - Jun 23, 2019
In his new installation, devised especially for Camden Arts Centre, Jonathan Baldock (b. Pembury, UK) explores contemporary ‘primitivism’ to create a darkly humorous world in which his works are cast as characters in an alternate reality. Borrowing its title from Orwell’s dystopian future fable, ‘1984’, Facecrime meshes together ceramics, basketry, hand-spun yarn, textiles and sound, through precariously stacked, monolithic ceramic columns that crowd and teeter through the gallery space.

GRACE PAILTHORPE | REUBEN MEDNIKOFF
Apr 12 - Jun 23, 2019
'Grace Pailthorpe, Reuben Mednikoff and the Birth of Psychorealism'.
A Tale of Mother’s Bones tells the remarkable story of a unique artistic and personal collaboration. After meeting at a party in 1935, Dr. Grace Pailthorpe (1883–1971), a trained surgeon, and Reuben Mednikoff (1906–1972), an artist and designer, began collaborating on a project that would bring together art, writing and psychoanalysis in an attempt to create a better society.
