Marina Vishmidt & Danny Hayward @ Hollybush Gardens, Oct 9

8 October 2014

Marina Vishmidt and Danny Hayward are taking over London’s Hollybush Gardens for a talk and reading on October 9.

The event takes place alongside and as part of David Panos’s latest exhibition, The Dark Pool, which has been running at the gallery from September 11 until October 12, and Vishmidt and Hayward arrive at its tail-end to shed light, from their disparate perspectives, on the subject.

London-based writer, editor and critic Vishmidt – author of Speculation as a Mode of Production and presenter at the recent Re-materialising Feminism collaborative project, will be giving a presentation titled ‘Dither and Ooze: The Dialectics of Matter at a Standstill’, exploring the relationship (or crisis) between art and capital and the speculative movement of contemporary art. Hayward, alternately, will read from his recently published collection, People, a compendium of poems, essays and drama.

There is currently no event page for this. **

Benoît Maire @ Hollybush Gardens, Mar 13 – Apr 12

13 March 2014

Paris-based artist Benoît Maire is presenting solo exhibition, Being, at London’s Hollybush Gardens, opening Mar 13 and running to April 12.

Inspired by 16th century artist and theorist Albrecht Dürer‘s ‘table’ and giving “the image the power of the concept and the concept the power of the image”, pictorial references from Da Vinci to Man Ray are expressed through a flow of images, situated outside of hierarchy and recontextualised in a sculptural installation.

All the while retaining the possibility for interpretation in a space where images are still “to be read” and “words seen”.

‘You don’t need a weatherman…’ @ Hollybush Gardens, Jan 16-Feb 22

15 January 2014

London’s Hollybush Gardens presents group exhibition You don’t need a weather man to know which way the wind blows, running January 16 to February 22.

Lifted from the lyrics of Bob Dylan’s ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues’, the title speaks to contemporary social and political upheaval, through the American Civil Rights movement of the 60s. Artists Aaron Angell, Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz, Andrea Büttner, Helen Cammock, Knut Henrik Henriksen, Pierre HuygheJochen Lempert and Bruno Pacheco use not only the exhibition title but animals as cipher and metaphor for various states of transition.

See the Hollybush Gardens website for details.
