An Exhibition by South London Women Artists

Over 20 female artists have their say on a blank canvas on the subject of coercive control and sexual abuse. The canvases are assembled into billboards, to create a ‘wall of unity’. Traditionally used for advertising, often objectifying women, the billboards serve as a reclaimed space where the female voice can be heard. The look of the billboards will depend entirely on the artists and their interpretation of the brief, making this exhibition truly exciting. The ‘Weinstein Ripple Effect’ and campaigns such as ‘Me Too’ have raised public awareness of sexual abuse and encouraged open conversation. Abuse can be subtle, coercive and manipulative or it can be overt, violent and explosive. It can be shrouded in silence and hidden within plain sight, or can erupt into our awareness through news stories and scandals. How do we change the culture of victim blaming and what can be done to end violence against women? The idea for using billboards references, SaveArtSpace:The Future is Female, The Guerrilla Girls, and ideas explored in the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. …

MINDSCAPES opens at bo.lee gallery

 “One source of the sublime is the infinity” Edmund Burke bo.lee gallery presents a show that explores liminal spaces – a place somewhere between one that exists and one that is conjured up in our minds eye. Time, light and narrative can evoke new meaning in a landscape, taking you from somewhere that is calm and inviting to a place that you might not want to inhabit alone. Saad Qureshi’s sculpture and drawings explores mental and physical landscapes; his work poetically probes cultural belonging, interconnectedness and separation through scale, material, and metaphor. Fascinated by memory and time, and how they affect landscapes – both internal and external – he seeks to deconstruct stereotypes and subvert narrow notions of belonging. Three dimensional landscapes presented in wooden drawers create worlds within a world, taking literal and metaphorical compartments, playing with scale, and examining their relation to the viewer. Patrick Jacobs produces miniature sculptures of hyper-realistic environments embedded into walls and viewed through glass portholes. Viewed at close range, his works are lit from within, revealing themselves with …
