‘[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.

ME, MYSELF ’N’ YOU : ZOE RICHARDSON AND VANESSA OMER
Aug 15 - 19, 2017 FINAL WEEK
Zoe Richardson and Vanessa Omer’s exhibition “Me, Myself ’n’ You” provides an experience for the viewer that they will never forget. This experience is dependant on the after affect that will be created for the viewer, in how it’s possible for the self and one’s body to be constructed in fragments. The work proposed will be installations such as projections and audio pieces, as well as some prints.
 
The self, the mask and ideas of identity form the conceptual axis of Zoe Richardson’s practise. Working mostly in film and photography to explore these ideas, Richardson takes herself as the subject, and within this exposes vulnerabilities and anxiety.
 
Vanessa Omer’s practise displays a heavy interest in the anatomical body with the use of functions and movements. Her work often is presented as a sensory based experience that aims to mesmerise and physically ‘affect’ the viewer within the space.
