JENNIFER HARDING & STEPHEN JAQUES : THE SHERBET HOUSE
May 15 - 26, 2019 FINAL WEEK
The Sherbet House originated in the kitchens of Ottoman palaces and is depicted in a Topkapi manuscript as a kiosk of concoctions being wheeled against a background of bands of intense colour. As an institution it travelled and eventually morphed into the London coffee-house, becoming less refined and more alcoholic as it went, but it remained synonymous with a refuge from the mundane with its richly-patterned textiles, multicoloured glass and nowadays, flashes of neon. Assimilating influences ancient and modern, from Havana to the Euphrates, Jennifer Harding and Stephen Jaques make paintings, constructions and prints which sublimate pattern and transcend the exotic, creating emblematic images of visual vibrancy.

RENDER PERMANENT
Jun 14 - 23, 2019
Private view Thu Jun 13 6pm - 9pm
Zanny Mellor, Kasper Pincis, Nick Scammell, Translating objects and experiences through physical intervention, three artists question the limits and promises of permanence. Legibility is challenged as boundaries and mediums are blurred. Time becomes malleable in their hands, their artworks acting as physical and temporal punctuation.
Zanny Mellor uses painting and photography to address themes of speed, light and time, in a sensory exploration of place.
Kasper Pincis plays with the contradictions inherent in trying to produce original pieces of work on copying equipment, and inhabiting a space somewhere between the heroic and the mundane.
Nick Scammell examines the frailty and impermanence of media, via surface and word.
Generating extended instants through repeated combinations and interventions, each artist adapts ageing technology to new ends.
