BENEDICT DREW: THE ANTI ECSTATIC MACHINES
Sep 22 - 30, 2018
Private view Fri Sep 21 6pm - 9pm
A song in digital video, painting and sound, Drew’s source material is a body of film he has shot in 16mm at sites around the south of England. 16mm film marks a new development in the artist’s practice, who has transferred the analogue footage into digital video for editing. Locations such as the port at Dover, the industrial greenhouses of Thanet Earth and new-build residential housing developments become material for a body of work whose backdrop is the social and political fall out of Tory austerity and the EU referendum. The 'Machines' of the title here stand in for forces at work in the socio-political climates we live in.

BORBALA SZANTO: HYPHEN
Oct 6 - 14, 2018
Private view Fri Oct 5 6pm - 9pm
Borbala Szanto is the recipient of the 2017 David Troostwyk Studio Award. The award, given each year, provides the recipient with a rent-free studio for one year at Martello Street, E8 — the SPACE studio where Robin Klassnik first opened Matt’s Gallery in 1979. Alongside Szanto has received mentoring from Klassnik and support from Jordan Baseman, Head of Moving Image, RCA. The artist will create a new installation with modular elements or ‘hyphens’ that flicker between an archetype and a mental image, between what is present and what is imagined.
