Gallery 46 in Whitechapel is our new sister gallery to be used as Londonewcastle Project Space. The new space, established through the partnership of Martin J Tickner and Sean McLusky and Fruitmachine founders, Martin Bell & Wai Hung Young breaks fresh ground for the open-source, non-conformist curatorial approach Tickner and McLusky employed at their (rightly) notorious MEN Gallery, in Shoreditch.Housed in a pair of newly renovated Georgian houses in the grounds of Whitechapel Hospital, GALLERY 46 is set over 3 floors and 8 rooms and is a kaleidoscopic addition to Whitechapel’s burgeoning gallery scene and close by its artistic...→
Our Street Art Programme is about turning over large canvases on buildings under our control – during planning and development – to artists, from the internationally renowned to the completely unknown. If you’d like Londonewcastle to showcase your work, contact us...→
An all-female group of artists present works that explore the evasive nature of memory and place – where they collide and what they conceal. Topophobophilia is an exhibition that considers the poetic and practical possibilities of the body and the familiar spaces it inhabits, acting as the subject matter and connected point of origin of their work.
A sense of habitation, characterised by an intangible familiarity in the houses that punctuate Lee Matthews' paintings, intermingle with fragments of space and the possibility of time in Sara Berman's multipartite compositions of the curated self. Lauren Coullard and Paula Kamps oscillate dream-like between abstraction and figuration, as aspects of both practices come alive on paper and canvas. For Carali McCall, the artist's body and moment of provenance are key to the physical act of making work as a drawing performance. Meanwhile, Laura Davis's sculptures occupy the nooks and crannies of small spaces; and Silia Ka Tung's anthropomorphic sculpture, made from stuffed sewn material, becomes a site of figuration inhabiting space.
The group's work – which fills the eight, intimate and entwined rooms of the two adjoining Georgian houses that contains Gallery 46 – weaves together notions of space, place and memory, that seeks to challenge and comfort in equal measure.
First used by W.H. Auden in the 1940s, topophilia defines a love of place derived from history and memory and it is these fragments of experience and imagination that dangle from this group show. topophobophilia therefore reminds us that the objects we hold on to and interior spaces that envelop us act as the structures to our very own museums of the self.
With thanks to Tickney, McLusky, Bell & Young at Gallery 46 – a Londonewcasle project space.
