Space Station Sixty-Five presents Only The World Remains, an exhibition of new works by Bridgette Ashton and Nicole Mollett. The outcome of an ongoing conversation between the artists, this exhibition is their first major presentation in London and will feature sculpture, performance, installation and print.

Focusing on notions of Artificial Landscape, the works depict elements and characteristics present in caves, grottoes and follies; reimagining histories, fragments and stories relating to Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens once located just around the corner from the gallery.

Ashton is exhibiting a series of sculptures, structures, models and prints suggesting connections between a pastoral past and our current urban environment, presenting fact, myth and contemporary observations.  To accompany these works she has produced a participatory map trail suggesting routes of navigation from the gallery along residential streets in the area.

New work by Mollett comprises of a series of hand painted Magic Lantern slides depicting landscapes, characters and imaginary creatures. The artist will stage a live performance during the exhibition eliciting stories and narratives both real and invented.

Both artists’ work references the past while contemplating the present and reflecting upon what this could be like. The exhibition will be accompanied by a new limited edition publication with an introduction by author Sally O’Reilly and a written piece by historian David Coke.

Only The World Remains is curated by Jo David co-founder, director of Space Station Sixty-Five. This exhibition marks a return for Space Station Sixty-Five to a gallery schedule following a period of intermission.

Only The world Remains is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
