SEER


Opening times: 12noon - 6pm

The latest collection of works by Ed Mpisaunga. Ed is a painter and illustrator from Zimbabwe living and working in London.

Ed's fascination with the universe and the invisible curtain that separates us from life's mysteries is the theme symbolising his work.

Growing up in Zimbabwe, the variety of forms and colours in nature fine-tuned his understanding of colours and the magic that is the life that we are immersed in.

Disrupted


Opening times: Thurs/Sat 12-6pm and Sun 12-5pm

An artwork has the power to express more than it depicts; it can transform elements of the everyday into a force that affects space and inspires all those who see it to question the existence of themselves and the world around them.

We seek to integrate our work within the unique setting of the crypt. Here, underneath the city--in the darkness, the depths--in this array of chambers we seek to re-evaluate our practice, and invite the public to experience our transition.

We are a group of fifteen early career artists living and working across London, coalescing in the Crypt to contrast our work, exploring the physicality of materials, concepts of humanity and ways of seeing. Originally from all four corners of the globe, this exhibition represents graduates from Wimbledon College of Art, Goldsmiths, Chelsea, and Westminster University.

THE GATHERING


Opening times: Fri/Sat 11am-7pm and Sun 11am-2pm
Private view: Thursday 15 May, 6pm-8.30pm

An Exhibition of Prints Using Memories and Images of Past Lives by Jody Little.

London, 1946. A family come together to celebrate a wedding. It is a joyous occasion and the first gathering since the end of the war. It is, however, marked by absence. People cannot help but remember friends and relatives not lucky enough to return home from the fighting, both from the recent war but also the Great War almost a generation ago.

Using a variety of printmaking techniques, The Gathering examines loss and remembrance and considers how the past influences and forges our identities in the present.

The Artist: Jody Little is a recent graduate from Camberwell College of Arts, London, with an MA in Printmaking. He previously studied History and Classics before following a career in the city. Originally from Scotland he now works and lives in London.
