Exhibition Highlights, February 2018

Concrete Pitch, Eddie Peake, White Cube Bermondsey 

Peake’s fourth solo exhibition with White Cube  presents an immersive and fluid environment formed of new sculpture, painting, sound and performance work.  It excites and surprises through use of lurid colour, sound and constructed pockets of intrigue we have come to expect from Peake's multidisciplinary practice. The artist's use of looping is found in it's centrepiece 'Stroud Green', a large-scale sound installation which weaves through the South Gallery, split screen projection of choreographed movement and live elements including his own presence in the space as well as Kool DJs. 

7 February – 8 April 2018 | White Cube Bermondsey, 144 – 152 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3TQ | Opening times Tuesday - Saturday 10am - 6pm, Sunday 12pm - 6pm

 

Shadow, Catherine Story, PEER

Catherine Story's first solo exhibition riffed on all manner of reference points and took me straight back to Morocco. Cubism, 1930's film and North Africa all came to mind walking through this site-specific installation and minimal display of sculpture.  A bit late to the party but this was my first experience of PEERS's  two-phase capital development. Completed mid 2016, it has  transformed their street-facing gallery window, deftly integrating the gallery into the physical and physiological fabric of Hoxton Street. 

Wednesday to Saturday 12 to 6pm during exhibitions and other times by appointment | PEER,  7-99 Hoxton Street,  N1 6QL

 

A Continuous Becoming, Giorgio Griffa, Camden Arts Centre
It is hard to believe that 'A Continue Becoming' is this octogenarian's first UK exhibition, given his radical contribution to Italian abstract painting. Affiliated with the Art Povera movement and performative in his approach,  Giorgio Griffa  believes in the 'intelligence of painting' whereby the work is influenced by the essential elements of the process; brush width, nature of canvas and colour pigment. Minimal, gestural and rhythmic canvases are the result, reflecting the ongoing practice of painting: one which is never formally complete, only complete in a moment of viewing. 

26 January - 8 April 2018 | Tuesday to Sunday: 10.00am – 6.00pm, Wednesday: 10.00am – 9.00pm Closed Mondays | Camden Arts Centre, Arkwright Road, London NW3 6DG
