‘[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.

Mar 20 - 25, 2018 FINAL WEEK
Private view Fri Mar 23 7pm - 10pm
Five contemporary artists conspire within the confines of London's Lewisham Arthouse, negotiating an agreement with the space through five different modes of making. This work takes the form of drawing, installation, sculpture and painting, creating, without a doubt, a certain amount of friction between one another. Through this friction and perhaps, too, this idea of overlapping, comes a sense of necessity, prompting the work to stand for itself, gaining its own rights within the context of this show.

Apr 11 - 22, 2018
Private view Fri Apr 13 6.30pm - 9.30pm
In the Space of Elsewhere brings together work by Lu Mei and Sara Willett that responds to the phenomenology of space. The exhibition does not just examine space in terms of cartological location and fixity, but also refers to the realm of poetic space - spaces that exist internally, in memory and imagination.
Both artists have also created site-specific work, which responds to the scale of the exhibition space and the neo-classical architecture of the building.
The exhibition is accompanied by a soundscape by composer John Lunn.

Work by Billy Crosby, Thomas Grieg, Rebecca Guez.
This exhibition brings together each of the artists recent work and puts into dialogue the emphatic materiality and physicality of production, that surrounds their works. With an interest in labour and gesture, as well as object investigation, materials are bitten, squashed, cut, pressed, squeezed, moulded, painted and printed, creating highly charged and affective outcomes.
