Catching one’s breath can happen if surprised, impressed or even shocked by something, such as an extraordinary object or image stumbled upon that instantaneously changes a familiar viewpoint. It can also be a time to pause or reflect and take stock.

Life in 2022 continues to appear full of uncertainties – After a tumultuous few years with a global pandemic and other crises including the war in Ukraine, and events such as climate change. However, in other ways perhaps we have reached a point of emergence; a tipping point where the potential for possibilities seems real once again.

In St John’s Churchyard, Waterloo, The London Group and invited artists whose work fits the discipline of sculpture and installation are responding to the theme, whilst Morley Gallery will host a member’s only exhibition.

Work in the newly refurbished Morley Gallery will include a diverse range of media such as painting; drawing; mixed media; photography on lightbox; small-scale sculpture; code-based audiovisual; video; archival digital and woodcut print techniques. Whilst artists respond in the historic Churchyard gardens using wood; steel & wire; site-specific installation; found objects; bamboo canes & plastic foil; tarpaulin; soil, water, clay, straw, sand, and cement; papier mache and paint, and much more.
