Apr 27 - May 14, 2017
‘[The] simple act of tying a knot is an adventure in unlimited space ... an excursion that is limited only by the scope of our own imagery and the length of the rope makers coil.'
 
Clifford Ashley, The Ashley Book of Knots
 
From 27th April to 14th May, Lewisham Art House will present KNOTS, an exhibition of new work by Shiree Allen, Nancy Edwards, Jo Evans and Liz Workman.
 
Knots are everywhere in our daily life, often overlooked but always invaluable. Working in print, photography, sculpture and works on paper, each artist has responded to the theme of knots: the literal (tangled, connected, binding, tension, repetition); the psychological and emotional (stomach knots, ‘certain knot of peace’, tying the knot); and the mythological (Gordian knots, Heraldic knots). A collaborative sculpture forms the centrepiece of the exhibition.

THE REPRESENTATIONAL & THE REAL: DISTURBED, HACKED, REASSEMBLED
Oct 26, 2017 7:30pm - 9:00pm talk/event
Discussion panel hosted by DRIVE-THRU as part of the ‘Disturbed, Hacked, Reassembled’ programme at Lewisham Arthouse, London.
Disturbed, Hacked, Reassembled explores how artists today are employing technology to stage, interrogate and celebrate the digital female body. Disturbed, hacked, and reassembled, the body is being experienced in new ways digitally and virtually.
Titled The Representational & The Real: Bodies in Digital Space, the discussion will open up questions such as, who is represented in technology and art? Who is practicing in these spaces? Who is building technology, creating digital imagery and for who? We’ll hear from a range of speakers who will discuss how we can harness technology to serve our needs, challenge social constructs and create new creative opportunities.
The discussion will be part performative with some bodies IRL and others in digital space. It will show us what digital spaces can facilitate, what we need to be aware of when practicing in these spaces and how the digital affects our understanding and ethics of what we do.
