PAUL WESTCOMBE : A SOUL TWIRLER BOOMS TROUT WET
Feb 18 - Mar 8, 2019
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.

The changing room is a place to transition, a place to come and go, to pass through. Bodies changing reveal a shedding of a layer, outfit, costume, persona, memory, skin or life.
 
This painting and sculpture exhibition looks at intimate traces of the body through a chasm between public, private, projected and theatrical personas; between the external and internal self. Physical, cast-off garments leave a trace of the body's activity behind, whilst the paintings capture ghostly figures in a state of dress/undress. These forms and gestures hold memories of our ghost bodies and evidence our continual search to reinvent or re-find ourselves/others. Here ghosts remain as a constant reminder of the body’s shifting states.

EPIC WIN
Nov 22 - Dec 6, 2019
Private view Thu Nov 21 5pm - 8pm
EPIC WIN is part of an on-going series of work by artist William Waterhouse, and is the result of a series of one-to-one “play dates” with colleagues and friends.
 
EPIC WIN aims to please and ask questions later. Low-fi, painted, MDF cut-outs form the building blocks of shanty structures destined to fall. A prescribed logic informs the activities carried out by the participants, allowing for a freedom within its constraints.
