62 HANDS
Jun 13 - 17, 2018
31 painters, 62 hands, works no larger than 12”
The work of these emerging artists centres on ideas as diverse as the myths, histories and politics of the North Caucuses; the overlooked spaces of the tourist trail; the anti-history paintings of modern India; the colonial histories of the British landscape garden; ruined industrial spaces and liminal wastelands; plant/human hybrids; anthropomorphism and fictional beasts; geology and alchemy; the erotic imagery of the Golden Lotus and the female protagonists of contemporary fairy tales.

Jan 25 - 27, 2019 FINAL WEEK
Private view Thu Jan 24 6pm - 9pm
Echoing Walter Benjamin’s vision of existential possibilities within urban utopias, ‘A Thousand Configurations’ presents the beginnings of a barely envisaged creative formation and the final conclusion of fully realised works. At Lewisham Arthouse, four current students from the MA Drawing course at Wimbledon College of Arts will display new work that considers “what will have been wanted”, monumentalizing the notions of memory and emotional experience, archaeological traces and fleeting biological imprints. Diverse in the content and processes of their respective practices, Silvia de Giorgi, Lucy George, Hannah Gormley and Denise Poote each grapple with notions of process, possibility and memory whether archaeological, biological or experiential.
