ANA ČVOROVIĆ : BORDERS UNFOLD
Sep 28 - Oct 26, 2019
'Borders Unfold' presents the latest expression of Ana Cvorovic's ongoing enquiry on migration and displacement. As part of her Arts Council England funded project with the same title, Borders Unfold is the culmination of a yearlong exploration of the complex psychological effects of geographic dislocation, particularly within communities from former Yugoslavia displaced during the civil war of the nineties. Aiming to create a link between her own experience of displacement and that of others, the artist pursued a research residency in Utica, New York, the city with the largest rate of refugees per capita in the US, in the Summer of 2018. Working with the local community on interviews, workshops and sound recordings, she now returns to sculpture to unfold her own interpretation of this investigation.

Nov 21, 2019 - Jan 11, 2020
Private view Thu Nov 21 6.30pm - 8.30pm
Selma Parlour is a prolific award-winning artist known for her oil paintings that look as though they are drawn, dyed, or printed. With over 30 unseen artworks from the last 2 years, ‘Activities for the Abyss’ showcases the artist’s soft films of luminescent colour, her delicately-rendered pencil-like oil-made lines and sumptuously refined matt surfaces, her diagrammatic approach that stresses painting’s two-dimensionality, her units of colour inlaid as though through a process of marquetry, her fascination with homeless representation, trompe-l’oeil illusion, multistable perception, and cognitive completion, her emphasis on mise en abyme, and the material apparatus of painting, as well as her architectural and virtual spatial explorations.
