Samara Scott @ Four Six One Nine, Nov 4 – 19

3 November 2016

Presented by The Sunday PainterSamara Scott is showing a solo exhibition at Los Angeles’ Four Six One Nine, opening November 4 and running to November 18.

Offsite Project: Los Angeles sees the London-based artist taking her “process-driven, large-scale environments of impermanent material” to produce a site-specific work responding to the cultural and physical landscape of the Californian city.  

Scott — who has contributed to SALT., exhibited her “sinkholes of paranoia” at Frieze London 2015 and shown Developer solo at Pump House Gallery in August this year — focuses on a saturated materiality within virtual space in her work.

Samara Scott in conversation @ Pump House Gallery, Aug 20

19 August 2016

Samara Scott is appearing in a conversation called ‘Shared, drunk, sweated’ with curator Guido Santandrea at London’s Pump House Gallery on August 20.

The evening, coinciding with the London-based artist’s current Developer show in the space, practice with reference to Gilles Clément, a garden designer, botanist and entomologist, in addition to the artist’s Lonely Planet (2015) publication and will be addressing the ecological discourse inherent in her recent work and new commission for the gallery.

Bologna-born Santandrea is a London-based curator who is currently a PhD candidate at the department of Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths University. Scott, who recently exhibited at Frieze London 2015 and East Side Projects in Birmingham, focuses on a saturated materiality within virtual space in her work. The event is free but booking is advised.

See the Pump House Gallery website for details.**

SALT. Noli Mi Tangere launch @ SLG, Mar 11

9 March 2016

SALT. is launching and celebrating its eighth issue, ‘Noli Me Tangere’ at London’s South London Gallery on March 11.

How can you touch something by not touching it? Freud’s aphorism, “touch is the first act of possession” hovers over the issue like a threat, says the event’s text.

‘Noli Me Tangere’ (‘Touch Me Not’ in Latin) aims to overthrow the privileging of the visual in favour of the sensorial: “It is an inherently feminist art practice to muddy the translation between the see-able and the say-able.”

There will be readings, performances and a live screening on the evening from Sarah Boulton, Bronte Dow, George Nesbitt and Holly White, and some of the contributors of the issue include Madeleine Stack, Rozsa Farkas, Samara Scott, Jennifer Boyd, Lauren Goddard, Marina Xenofontos, whose video is below, and Hannah Regel, Thea Smith, Jala Wahid – three of the editors of the London-based magazine.

See the South London Gallery event page for more details.**
