Locate

Locate

Curated by Sarah Williams
Part of the Jerwood Encounters series

11 August – 12 September
Jerwood Space
171 Union Street, London, SE1 0LN
 
Featuring the work of artists Mel Brimfield, Sarah Pickering and Aura Satz, Locate will exhibit three experimental new commissions exploring the idea of ‘site’.

Each of the artists was asked to propose ideas for new works that responded to a geographical location, institution, collection, a fictional or conceptual space. They are now embarking on a five month research project to develop their ideas and the resulting works will be exhibited at Jerwood Space in August. The commissioning fee will support the artists to develop their practice in new areas and the exhibition will provide a platform on which to showcase their new works. 

Locate
is the third in a series of experimental exhibitions curated by Sarah Williams and demonstrates a commitment by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation to supporting new experimental commissions within the Jerwood Visual Arts programme. Previous exhibitions in this series include: An Experiment in Collaboration (2008) and Laboratory (2009).

Jerwood Space

Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm
Saturday 11am – 3pm

Delicately gruesome remains spill enticingly across the space in a globular installation of painting and collage. The paintings seemingly ooze from the corner of the space, dripping down the wall into collages of pigment and imagery. The strange shaped canvases provide a base for these abstract paintings, which appear to have grown extensions and additions. The installation sprawls across the space as the border between abstraction and representation melts away and the recognisable is homogenised into a new entity.

Since 2004 Jerwood Space has provided emerging artists with the opportunity to create new work in the Project Space, an exciting and vibrant environment located in the Café. Curated by Sarah Williams, the Project Space showcases up to seven exhibitions a year, which run in tandem with the Jerwood Visual Arts programme in the gallery.
