Repetitive strain

Repetitive strain

23rd June- 3rd July 2018

Sometimes I’m looking down on it from above,

Other times it feels like I’m outside looking through a window, with nothing but my reflection separating me from the space on the inside.

Do you remember what I said earlier?


Lewisham Arthouse is delighted to present Repetitive Strain, a new body of work by Kate Fahey. The exhibition is her first solo presentation in the UK and embodies an exploration of her on going practice based PhD research completed while undertaking Lewisham Arthouse’s Graduate Residency Program.

Working across the boundaries of various mediums including moving-image, sound, stills, sculpture, and installation, her practice explores our relationship with images through contemporary screen-based perspectives: aerial, satellite and elevated (drone’s eye) views, particularly in the technological hard and soft wares of encounter. Focusing on imagery predominantly appropriated from YouTube, her multidisciplinary fine art practice engages with the surface and materiality of the aerial image employing metafictional and subjective approaches to their habitual modes of spectatorship online.

PV: Saturday the 23rd June 6 – 9pm.
Dates: 24th June and 27th June – 1st July. 12–6pm daily or by appointment.

The open call for the next Graduate Studio Award will be made public this coming July – offering recent graduates a fantastic, free opportunity to develop their practice in a 200ft studio based within our artist-led cooperative in South East London. Towards the end of the period the awardee will be supported to mark the occasion showcasing a project, event or exhibition of their choosing in the Arthouse Gallery in 2019.
