Click to enlargeCYRIL DE COMMARQUE AND KATE DAUDY : ARTISTS-IN-RESIDENCE
opens 2/11
De Commarque interrogates the impact of technological and scientific advancement on Earth’s geology and ecosystems, encouraging visitors to contemplate a new world where the notion of Homo Sapiens is superseded by a species of its own creation; Homo Artificialis, imagined through a series of sculptural mise-en-scenes.
 
In addition to de Commarque’s installation, British artist Kate Daudy utilises her vast knowledge of Egyptology and Ancient Egyptian faith and traditions to produce an installation that draws on her relationship with death and time. Starting with Daudy’s interactive study, visitors are taken through an immersive journey exploring themes that include mortality, faith and science, human presence, and history.
 
During the first months of the exhibition, ‘Artificialis’ and ‘It Wasn’t That At All’ will open the conversation further to the public through a dynamic programme of talks and events by collaborators and leading experts in their fields.

Click to enlargeHILARY LLOYD : CAR PARK
Nov 21 - Dec 20, 2019 FINAL WEEK
Comprising a new multi-disciplinary body of work – centred on a new large-scale video installation titled Car Park – the exhibition extends Lloyd’s long-term use of video and installation, and for the first time painting, in the form of large-scale murals on the gallery walls. With interests in architecture, fashion, textiles and colour, Lloyd’s work centres on film and video whilst also invoking sculpture, painting and installation. Engaging directly with their sites of production or of exhibition-making, her films resist conventional notions of ‘duration’, instead representing filmic tableaux’s to be encountered.

ALBERT OEHLEN
Oct 2, 2019 - Feb 2, 2020
Albert Oehlen (b. 1954, Krefeld, Germany) is one of the most innovative and significant artists working today. He has been a key figure in contemporary art since the 1980s and the diversity of his painting is a testament to the intrinsic freedom that remains at the heart of the medium. Through expressionist brushwork, surrealist gestures and deliberate amateurism, he engages with the history of painting, pushing its essential components to bold new extremes.

Nov 8, 2019 - Feb 9, 2020

Click to enlargeMERLIN CARPENTER
Nov 22, 2019 - Jan 18, 2020
An exhibition of new paintings by Merlin Carpenter. The show considers the hand-painted object’s capacity to engage with and complicate the language and history of the readymade.
 
Merlin Carpenter’s work grapples with the potential relationship between painting and the readymade; and the possibility of collapsing the ideas that distinguish these practices. Since the 1990s the readymade object has been an integral line of inquiry in Carpenter’s work; and in more recent years he has presented a number of readymade works that hang flat on the wall like a painting. Carpenter’s new hyperrealistic paintings push the boundaries of painting into the discourse of the readymade in another way: the five works are so highly finished that they appear like a product, delivered from elsewhere. In this stark new presentation, Carpenter encourages the audience to both critique the authenticity of the paintings and simultaneously accept the role of the artist's hand.

24/7 : A WAKE-UP CALL FOR OUR NON-STOP WORLD
Oct 31, 2019 - Feb 23, 2020
A major exhibition exploring the non-stop nature of modern lives. A host of international contemporary artists and designers will hold a mirror up to a world in which we are sleeping less, complex systems are exerting control, and the pull of the screen is disrupting our instincts to daydream and pay attention to the world around us, and each other. The exhibition is inspired by the book of the same title by art critic and essayist Jonathan Crary (Verso, 2013).
 
Contributors include Marcus Coates, Mat Collishaw, Harun Farocki, Pierre Huyghe, Rut Blees Luxemburg, Kelly Richardson, Pilvi Takala, Addie Wagenknecht, and ten artists and designers from Somerset House Studios, including Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard.

A diverse group exhibition of artworks which draw upon themes of science-fiction, utopia, ritual and the fragility of human hope and existence.

A part of the original text will be reprinted in S|2’s accompanying exhibition catalogue. The artists featured in the exhibition are Stano Filko, Peter Hujar, Marguerite Humeau, Charlotte Johannesson, Clementine Keith-Roach, Arik Levy, Charlotte Prodger, Paul Thek, Tishan Hsu, Nanda Vigo and Anna Zemánková.

Dec 8, 2019 - Mar 28, 2020
Commissioned solo exhibition exploring hindsight, nostalgia and storytelling through ceramics and textiles. This is the first exhibition to launch SPACE’s new gallery in Ilford.
Lindsey Mendick (b. 1987 lives and works in London) creates installations centred on her skilled work in ceramics and includes banner painting, sewing, metalwork, furniture making and sound. Her autobiographical works are often confessional, referencing the horrors and emotions of adolescence while narrating her experience as a female artist. Drawing from classical painting, mythical women and pop culture iconography, her gothic-like work tells a defiant story that is at once both vulnerable and resilient.

From 30 November 2019 to 26 January 2020, the building's grand entrance is turned into a marooned temple, appearing with tattered banners and tangled lights, while sculptural objects cascade down the steps from the shuttered central door, surrounded by an atmospheric soundscape of rain, thunder, birds and insects.
