LONDON.-Returning to the collection for one night only, Joan Molloy exhibits Table and Window for the first time. The works offer a complex and highly original exploration of time, focusing on memories of childhood, family relationships and ageing, through a combination of photography, film, object-making and installation. A central theme is the definition of time itself as both an experience and a process which impacts on mankind, specifically the familial unit, the audience and the artworks themselves. Moving around Table, we see the combination of materials actively distorts the image just as a memory of an event changes over time. Window is a new series where large sash windows display film stills from Molloys earlier work, Photograph.
Due to popular demand, Stephen Walters exhibition of The Island: London Series has now been extended until July 2009. The works are inspired by the unfolding drama of city life and its continually shifting cultural identity. From a distance, the drawings look like old historical maps, geographically accurate and including many of Londons main roads and historical landmarks, but on closer inspection each has a unique identity fashioned by the artists idiosyncratic semiotics, which are wittily juxtaposed with the familiar everyday signage of maps and public spaces.
