WHEN YOU TRAVEL IN TIME, LEAVE NOTHING BEHIND.
May 11 - 20, 2018
When you travel in time, leave nothing behind is a collaborative show with three emerging female artists.
Anna Hillbom, Amba Sayal Bennett and Emma Papworth share a deep interest in exploring intrinsic qualities of material and shape, in order to bring out a possible mystic through poetic, tactile means and a personal definition of logics.
In sculpture, drawing and installation, an urgency to decipher and re-think signifiers of authority becomes evident. Gestures from ancient art, classical architecture, modern cityscape and archaeological founds are canalized and obscured in order to question ideas of body, agency, canonic history-writing and a linear sense of time.
The works of the exhibition act as a collaborative installation between the artists where the agency of each artist at times is blurred, at times visible, in an attempt to question the relation of object and agency in the gallery space as well as in a broader context of history writing.

ST NOWHERE
Jul 16 - 29, 2018 FINAL WEEK
St. Nowhere gives us a space lost in time and purpose. It’s not important where these are located or if they are unidentified spaces. They are familiar and unfamiliar, between waking and reality. With a playful pioneering spirit, four artists - Narbi Price, Rosey Prince, Rob Reed and Gill Rocca - re-evaluate and re-purpose the quiet humdrum of suburbia with the ingenuity and playfulness of explorers. And their mission? To explore the common place, seek out the hidden havens and find a renewed meaning deep within.

Aug 14 - 18, 2018
Private view Tue Aug 14 6pm - 9pm
From the 14th – 18th August, Lewisham Art House will be showcasing a joint exhibition by artists Laura Greenway and Carlie Simpkin, both recent graduates from University for the Creative Arts, Farnham. The show provides an intimate look into the lives of those affected by psychiatric disorders, and aims to start a much needed and essential conversation about mental illness. 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.

GILL 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.
