by the way

The group of seven artists (Madi Acharya-Baskerville, Tom Banks, Joost Gerritsen, Sam Hodge, Mark Sowden, Matthew Swift and Ana Vicente) and one writer (Mike Sims) showing at Lewisham Arthouse in March all make work that emerges from an engagement with the landscapes they inhabit and move through.

Often this engagement begins with an unexpected encounter that demands attention. It may be the sight of a single lit window in a darkened cul de sac, a gnarled piece of wood that assumes the shape of a figure, an abandoned frame that demands to be given a new life or a discarded piece of plastic that will be given the close attention of a precious stone.
These incidental encounters and others like them have opened up new ways of working for the artists showing together in by the way. Through the diverse media of photography, performance, poetry, sculpture, printmaking and painting they have shaped and grown work out of these encounters.

We use the phrase ‘by the way’ when we want to introduce a new topic, something we have just thought of but needs to be said. We may not be quite sure of its importance but will share it anyway. It is this spirit of the incidental, tangential, happened upon, and the new that informs the working practices of the artists in this show and gives energy to the group.

by the way is part of an ongoing project called Things That Are There.

Featuring: Charlotte Edey, Emma Talbot and Gosia Walton curated by Martha May Ronson

A group exhibition of works by three female artists exploring themes surrounding the spiritual awakening process. The title of the exhibition Dark Night of the Soul refers to a poem written in the 16th century by mystic and poet, St John of the Cross. The poem describes the several stages one goes through during spiritual enlightenment: realisation, purgation, contemplation, ascension, and the feelings and emotions that arise along the journey.
