LEG UP : EMMA COUSIN
Feb 9 - 18, 2018
In Leg Up London-based artist Emma Cousin (b. 1986) investigates the body as the site of experience - examining what we can and cannot control in all aspects of daily life, and questioning the meanings of mobility, both physical and social. Using the body as a metaphor, and emphasising the role that the body plays in processing and defining our experiences, Cousin’s paintings present a pantheon of women performing everyday gestures to address notions of time, aging, strength, inertia and vulnerability.
Leg Up takes forward Cousin’s residency research project, Legwork, started at Wimbledon in October 2016 and is supported by paintingresearch at Wimbledon College of Arts and Isabel Bingley at Lewisham Arthouse Gallery. The work is accompanied by a text by Luce Garrigues and Amy Mechowski. The results of the artist’s residency research project, Legwork will be published on 8 October in the form of a catalogue including contributions from over 30 artists.

A staggering One in Four people suffer from a mental health problem in their lifetime, yet mental illness is still often regarded as a taboo subject that remains highly stigmatised - an issue that this unique and candid exhibition aims to tackle.

Click to enlargeGILL ROTH AND ANDREW CLARKE : MAKE BELIEVE
Sep 1 - 9, 2018
Private view Fri Aug 31 6pm - 9pm
Gill Roth and Andrew Clarke met at Maidstone College of Art in the 1980’s. They have lived in Lewisham for over 15 years, taking part in local Open Studios. This is their first joint exhibition.
 
Both Gill and Andrew make work that blurs the edge between abstraction and representation, where the observable world meets the environment of the imagination.
 
While drawing forms the core of Gill’s practice, Andrew’s figures emerge through a process of collaging and assemblage. Both work on paper in a way that embraces intuition, accident and play with recurring motifs hinting at inner bodily functions or states of mind.
