Jul 4 - Sep 8, 2019
Gasworks presents the first UK solo exhibition and a major new commission by Chilean artist Patricia Domínguez, who will transform the gallery into a ritual space bringing together her ongoing research on ethnobotany, shamanistic practices and the corporatisation of wellbeing.
Her most recent installations take the form of cybernetic fetishes, totems, masks and magical objects designed to exorcise the effects of late capitalism in the physical and social body, while playfully exploring the emancipatory potential of artistic imagination as a form of psychic guerrilla warfare. Built around a pyramid-shaped altar, the exhibition will comprise sculptures, video and a publication tracing the colonial circulations of seeds and data in a hyperconnected society.

KUDZANAI-VIOLET HWAMI (15,952KM) VIA TRANS-SAHARA HWY N1
Sep 19 - Dec 15, 2019
Private view Wed Sep 18 6.30pm - 8.30pm
Gasworks presents the first institutional solo exhibition by London-based artist Kudzanai-Violet Hwami. Born in Zimbabwe, Hwami left her homeland at the age of nine amidst political turmoil. Drawing on personal experiences of geographical dislocation and displacement, her intensely pigmented paintings combine visual fragments from a myriad of sources, including images found online and haunting family photographs, as a way to collapse past and present into bold afro-futuristic visions.
