ERIK VAN LIESHOUT
Apr 7 - Jun 11, 2017
Erik van Lieshout’s work explores themes often rooted in his experience of living and working in the Netherlands but nevertheless relevant to contemporary experience across Europe and beyond. His SLG show brings together works that draw on socio-political observations, marginalised identities and the role of the artist in society. Interconnected architectural environments house three videos characterised by an absurdist sense of humour and ranging from a study of cats living in the basement of St. Petersburg’s Hermitage Museum, through to interviews with the artist’s family members, and a series of monologues set against an investigation into the life of a deceased man called Janus.

Apr 7 - Jun 11, 2017
Following six months as the South London Gallery's Graduate-in-Residence in the Outset Artists' Flat, Alicia Reyes McNamara presents her first solo show in a public institution. Reyes McNamara's work aims to challenge incomplete identities constructed by two-dimensional ideas of Latino culture. Her work translates the Mexican American or Chicana identity through her explorations of language as a territory and space to challenge ideas of authenticity within a diaspora. Combining sculpture, painting and video work in the exhibition, Reyes McNamara investigates key texts by Mexican American theorist Gloria E. Anzalúda, Dominican American writer Junot Díaz, and Cuban American poet Gustavo Pérez Firmat.
