ALISON TURNBULL: IF MIMICRY MINDED
Apr 21 - 29, 2018
In 2017 Turnbull travelled to Chocó, Colombia at the invitation of Más Arte Más Acción to study butterflies in the Pacific rainforest, working alongside Dr Blanca Huertas, Senior Curator in Lepidoptera at the Natural History Museum, London.
 
From this visit Turnbull has developed a series of observational watercolours produced from butterfly specimens gathered on her trip. The Heliconius melpomene vulcanus exhibited here exercised particular fascination and these works mark a distinctive detour or byway within the artist's practice as a painter.

Jan 19 - 27, 2019 FINAL WEEK
In 2018 Grimes spent 8 months on a fellowship at The British School at Rome. As she worked, her thoughts kept returning to Italian Cinema - from the Neorealists to late Fellini. She took walks in the early morning to enjoy the city before the crowds; gradually the walks and the films got woven together in Grimes thoughts, dreams and work. Grimes began to make video recordings, not acting she says, but 'drawing the moment.'

NATHANIEL MELLORS & ERKKA NISSINEN BAD MANTRA
Feb 2 - 24, 2019
Private view Fri Feb 1 6pm - 9pm
Nathaniel Mellors’ fourth exhibition at Matt’s Gallery and the first solo presentation of his collaborative practice with Erkka Nissinen. The pair established their collaborative practice when they developed The Aalto Natives for the Finnish Pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennale. It will continue along the artists' solo practices.
 
Bad Mantra draws its title from an episode in The Aalto Natives. The work presented is a darkly humorous take on Finnish identity, creation myths and nationalism. From that installation has grown a body a work that extends and develops narratives from the video.
