Mirror Darkness
Artist-in-residence at Lumen Studios at St John on Bethnal Green during August, Julie Hill’s resulting site-specific installation is an exploration of the unknown in science and religion and the limits of our perception. Referencing the James Webb telescope and the phenomena of dark nebulae, Hill’s constructed nebulae respond to the space and context of the Lumen Crypt Gallery, appearing as cloud-like supernatural forms.
2-9 November 2017, Lumen Studios, The Crypt, St John on Bethnal Green, 200 Cambridge Heath Road, London E2 9PA.

The 86th National Honey Show
Being a central London bee keeper has inspired Corinne Edwards’ jewellery practice. The artist-maker will be presenting her hexagon rings and earrings at the National Honey Show’s Trade Hall. Alongside all products related to honey, the show features classes, workshops and lectures.
Until 28 October 2017, Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher, Surrey.

Inside-Out: The Spaces of Motherhood
A joint exhibition from Lizzie Philps and Liz Hart that presents their respective projects GPS Embroidery and Mummy Monster, within the wider context of motherhood. Photography, film and objects convey the largely performative practices of both artists, from Philps’ walking-based participatory works to Hart’s one-woman comic theatre show, which tours private homes – the perfect setting for a ‘Mummy Monster’ who tries to keep things together until she can’t.
Until 1 November 2017, Hamilton House Gallery, 80 Stokes Croft, Bristol BS1 3QY.
