KUDZANAI-VIOLET HWAMI : (15,952KM) VIA TRANS-SAHARA HWY N1
Sep 19 - Dec 15, 2019
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.

Jan 23 - Mar 22, 2020
Private view Wed Jan 22 6.30pm - 8.30pm
Gasworks presents C I T H R A, the first solo exhibition in London by Lauren Gault, a Glasgow-based artist born in Belfast. Through her experimentation with unorthodox materials, techniques and manufacturing processes, Gault's work explores the transitions between different states of matter and non-human time scales, while also addressing the ethical and political implications of our everyday interactions with the environment.
 
In her sculptures, materials as diverse as polished horn, blown glass, pumped air, light, water or agricultural milk powder are transformed by processes involving pressure, tension and release. Her work evokes intangible encounters between radically different materialities and opens up a space for objects to communicate and resonate with one another.
