A group show exploring haptic thinking in relation to the architecture of Lewisham ArtHouse coinciding with Deptford X Festival, Art Licks Weekend and Lewisham Arthouse Open Studios.
Caesura et Vide Supra brings together new work by artists exploring what the Finnish theorist Juhani Pallasmaa describes as ‘tactile ingredients in our otherwise ocular experience of architecture’.
Exhibiting artists employ playful attitudes towards media-relevant genealogies of viewing and display, re-defining possibilities for the material object-hood of painting and printmaking in relation to architecture. Their new work responds to the characteristic architectural features and scale of the imposing Edwardian Carnegie building of Lewisham Arthouse,originally erected to house a library.
