Oddly Drawn Object @ Haunt Gallery, Oct 26 – Nov 27

24 October 2016

The Oddly Drawn Object group exhibition is on at London’s Haunt gallery, opening October 26 and running to November 27.

Curated by Rebecca Dick, the show features work by Anna Reading, Lotte Scott and Hattie Moore, with a music take over from East Anglia Records.

Bringing together print, sculpture and video, the works re-imagine the properties of objects, and the potential for shift into an “unusual form, growing or melting or seemingly formless, reminiscent of the organic and translated between dimensions.”

The opening night will be host to DJ Sets by (the headliner) Papa Limes with old school hip-hop, a selection by Sweatlana, “rhythm and disappointment” with DJ H.Bix  and ‘Songs to remember’ by P Flouncy.

See the Haunt gallery website for details.**

The Time Is Now Ready For Delivery (Orgasmos) @ Cinema6, May 2

2 May 2014

London’s new Cinema6 film programme, running at Arcadia Missa April 27 to June 8, is screening an evening of artists’ video on May 2.

Organised by artist Anna Reading, the event features single-screen video by Holly White, Fanny Aboulker, Connie Butler, Jesse Darling and Hannah BlackAnnie Strachan, Mary Vetisse and more, responding to the brief of translating “the materiality of their practice into temporality”.

Occupying a transgressive space, not only in crossing boundaries in a hybrid approach to art but also in considering the notion of Orgasm as “a moment where matter and energy create a time-based phenomenon”, artists question notions  of “honesty, physicality, objecthood, patriarchy and the personal/political dichotomy”.
