In her first institutional solo show in the UK, Ilona Sagar presents Correspondence O, a multi-faceted work exploring the history of the Pioneer Health Centre in Peckham and its subsequent conversion into a gated community. Sagar’s moving image installation expresses the complex, changing landscape of public health and the social shift towards a more egocentric, user-focused and technology-infused understanding of wellness.

The SLG presents the UK premiere of a new commission by the LA and Berlin-based choreographer, dancer and visual artist Adam Linder. The most ambitious of his choreographic “services” to date, No.5: Dare to Keep Kids Off Naturalism extends for fifty hours across ten days as four performers occupy the SLG’s main gallery, utilising modular costumes to create ever-changing architectonic formations that reconsider the relationship between their theatrical sensibility and the exhibition space. Linder’s practice explores the notion of choreography as an economically viable public service in the form of physical, performed labour, drawing on the disciplinary sensibilities of visual arts and its inscribed histories.
See for performance times.
Service No.5: Dare to Keep Kids Off Naturalism is a co-production of South London Gallery and Kunsthalle Basel.

In a new series of meticulously produced sculptures, Reus integrates references to objects recognisable from our everyday experience into ostensibly abstract forms. Reproducing conventionally analogue gestures through complex casting and moulding techniques, she establishes a sculptural language which seems to be in a state of perpetual transition between different temporal stages: frozen in the process of becoming (mid-render), caught in the midst of a function (mid-use), or in a state of restoration, ruin or abandonment.
Commissioned and produced by Bergen Kunsthall and the South London Gallery. Supported by the Mondriaan Fund and Arts Council Norway.

Jun 7 - Aug 26, 2018
Luiz Zerbini is one of Brazil’s most established contemporary artists, known for his vivid works on canvas which draw on a range of themes from the abstract to landscapes, cityscapes, and domestic scenes using a range of techniques and styles. For his first solo show in a UK public institution, Zerbini will show a series of large-scale paintings referencing modernist architecture, contemporary culture and elements from the natural environment. These will be presented with a series of abstract works on canvas positioned around a sculptural centre-piece. The exhibition will also present Zerbini’s 35mm film and slide works.
