Diana Krilova New Works
Watching her children play and make art serves as the impetus for Diana Krilova‘s recent paintings, which incorporate a heightened sense of colour and multiple-point perspective. These paintings aim to ‘re-see’ landscape and nature in the way that children do, creating the feeling of a close-up experience and sense of ‘magic, vivacity and adventure’.
5-7 October 2018, 5th Base Gallery, 23 Heneage Street, London E1 5LJ.
Edge Effects: Artists and Animals on the Margins
In this film screening and peer-led discussion event, the phenomenon of ‘edge effects’ – the impact that agriculture, mining and urban development have on the ecologies that border them – becomes a means of thinking, not only about the ways that animals co-exist with human development but also an analogy for artistic survival. Work by Olga Koroleva, Bryony Gillard and Tuuli Malla explores human-animal relationships and peripheral ecologies. It forms the starting point for an exploration of what it means for artists who are also increasingly at the periphery of urban developments. Part of Art Licks Weekend 2018.
Friday 5 October 2018, 6.30pm, Evening Class, 48 Aberfeldy Street, London E14 0NU.
RiskLab: risk in art explored through technology
Speaking about political oppression and immigration, Russian artist Ada Mukhina creates telematic performances, each time inviting a guest artist, based elsewhere, to participate live via telecommunications technology. Her guests for these two performances are Anis Hamdoun, a Syrian director and writer based in Germany, and Abhishek Thapar, an Indian theatre maker, puppeteer and artist based in the Netherlands. The conversation and performance focuses on what it means for artists to take risks in life and in art.
4 & 5 October 2018, 9pm, Camden People’s Theatre, 58-60 Hampstead Road, London NW1 2PY.
Surface to Air
A solo show of works by Andy Bannister, including his ongoing body of work exploring the cold war era through cultural and historical reference points. This includes digital drawings depicting playground climbing frames from the late 1960s and early 1980s , the design of which highlights the ideals and anxieties of those times, and pencil drawings that rework photographs of atomic science and nuclear technology.
Until 28 October 2018, Turner Sims, University of Southampton, Highfield Campus, SO17 1BJ.
Corduroy Part Two
An exchange exhibition between Studio44 in Stockholm and neo:artists in Bolton.
