PAUL WESTCOMBE : A SOUL TWIRLER BOOMS TROUT WET
Feb 18 - Mar 8, 2019
Private view Thu Feb 28 5pm - 8pm
Paul Westcombe presents 'A soul twirler booms trout wet', an experimental wall-drawing and painting installation with theatrical elements, in collaboration with Katrina Sheppeard (Dramatic Soprano) and students from Wimbledon Fine Art and Theatre courses. Using the architecture and idiosyncrasy of the exhibition space, the artist will create visual and conceptual vistas based on the writings of Raymond Roussel (particularly Locus Solus), and his disastrous theatre productions. Black portals, fragmentated body-architecture hybrids; the space will be transformed into a fantastical, grotesque and phantasmagorical space – a complex mechanism of desire.
 
This is the third exhibition in Wimbledon Space’s year of PORTAL themed projects.

WHAT IS A WINDOW?
Mar 13 - 29, 2019
Private view Thu Mar 14 5pm - 8pm
What is a Window? showcases a selection of in-curriculum work by year one BA (Hons) Interior and Spatial Design. Students started by choosing a London window and exploring it through orthographic scale drawings, models, photography and film. They then combined individual windows with their peers to create new spaces. The project culminates in this exhibition, collaboratively designed and curated by the students to present their proposals, ideas and research in response to the question ‘What is a Window?’
