FOLD Gallery | London

Originally run as a crossover between a commercial gallery and a project space, FOLD Gallery | London specialised in producing group shows. This gave the opportunity for UK based and international artists, from emerging to mid-career practices, to be brought together within context. The principle goal behind the curated group exhibitions was to expand the reach of the gallery by constantly bringing in new audiences.

Re-located in Clerkenwell, FOLD Gallery continues to push its reach to new audiences. The gallery is now a commercial venture, where the focus still remains on strongly themed group shows, but the programme is now punctuated and enhanced with significant solo presentations. FOLD strives to present all of the artists work within context, to give the viewer the best opportunity to gain understanding of the intentions of the artist, whilst viewing the work displayed to the highest possible standards.

MAKE BE MORE THAN ONE START

FINBAR WARD

‘There is something death like about a painting finished’ Philip Guston

In his first solo show in London, Finbar Ward presents us with constructions that are born primarily out of the language of painting; the idea that a picture is found or ‘caught out’ during a deferral of closure is what determines the work’s identity.

The work is built up out of the stuff or matter in the artist’s periphery, brought to the fore and exposed in the gallery. Stretchers and stray timbers are stacked, packed and compressed in forms and motifs that allude to the tradition of minimalism, albeit a flat pack incarnation.

Elevated and momentarily preserved in a state of pretend completion, the debris of production is rendered through processes of reassembly and transformation in an endeavor to dramatize, and ultimately, test the potential of painting; the linen surface as likely to find itself hidden away or discarded, as it is to be found mounted on its support.

Anxieties regarding the validity and status of painting have become a driving force in defining the motive behind Ward’s ve... [ Read all ]

UNA KNOX

Friday 4th July - Saturday 19th July 2014

Curated by Erica Shiozaki

In filmmaking, room tone is the ‘silence’ recorded at a location or space. This silence is distinct, a presence created by the space boundaries – walls, ceiling, floor and other objects in the room, in relation to a microphone.

Knox’s research-based practice encompasses various media, including moving image, print and performance. For this exhibition, Knox’s works explore architecture through sound, incorporating thoughts on technologies, voice, fiction and historical events. Within a tropical landscape a speech pathologist, working with the human body as acoustic space, uses voice to sound out and understand the surrounding inner and outer atmospheres.

The exhibition is accompanied by a publication and an evening of films selected by the curator and artist.

Una Knox is an artist based in London, UK, originally from Vancouver, Canada. Knox’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, including Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge, Cell Project... [ Read all ]

ENANTIODROMIA

SIMON CALLERY | LAWRENCE CARROLL | ANGELA DE LA CRUZ | ONYA McCAUSLAND

This exhibition of paintings considers material as a cue for perceiving the world in an age of extreme image saturation. The emphasis on material over image is a counterpoint to the tyranny of the screen that realigns the visceral properties of matter as new potent narrative ‘actants’ for the 21st century.

The term ‘materiality’ has been banded around a lot recently, infiltrating contemporary discourse perhaps in recognition and acknowledgement of an increasingly virtual experience of the world, one in which the act of looking has itself been hijacked by the proliferation of highly co-modified imagery. In this scenario the once primary physical world becomes the shadow, other, and its simulacra experienced through the screen-world takes its place in a reversal of conventional oppositions of material-immaterial, physical-metaphysical, looking/non-looking, seeing/non-seeing.

We take our cue from images, in the beginning on cave walls, holy walls, canvas and screen but, saturation of image depotentialises image – over exposure lea... [ Read all ]
