14th-23rd June 2019
Translating objects and experiences through physical intervention, three artists question the limits and promises of permanence.
Legibility is challenged as boundaries and mediums are blurred. Time becomes malleable in their hands, their artworks acting as physical and temporal punctuation.
Zanny Mellor uses painting and photography to address themes of speed, light and time, in a sensory exploration of place.
Kasper Pincis plays with the contradictions inherent in trying to produce original pieces of work on copying equipment, and inhabiting a space somewhere between the heroic and the mundane.
Nick Scammell examines the frailty and impermanence of media, via surface and word.
Generating extended instants through repeated combinations and interventions, each artist adapts ageing technology to new ends.

May 31st – 8th June 2019
Like catching snippets of other people’s conversations in a crowded bar Pears is an exhibition made up of fractured dialogues. Each exhibiting member of the Arthouse cooperative has invited a guest artist to show alongside them. Each pair of works will be hung side by side, encouraging a dialogue between them and hopefully allowing new conversations to form across the room.
This is a group show with the emphasis on looking outward, an open and expanding conversation. By focusing on the connections between different artworks and artists we hope to promote the creative networks that underpin our community and emphasise the role of the Arthouse as a resource for bringing people together.
Dates: May 31st – 8th June 2019
Opening times: Wednesday – Sunday 12-6pm
Private view: Friday 7th June 7-9pm

Lewisham Arthouse curates and helps organize contemporary art exhibitions and associated events. The Project Space offers a fantastic opportunity for artists, curators and community groups to realise experimental works, and contribute to an engaging and ambitious programme.
Lewisham Arthouse is working to ensure that the opportunity to use the Project Space is open and equal to all. We acknowledge the structural barriers that can block people engaging in and creating art. In an effort to do more about this in our programme we will be allocating time in the year equally to different kinds of applications. The form now encourages you to tick as many of the following boxes that apply to you or your group: schools or community group, mid career or established artist, emerging or early career, student or graduate show, non white or BAME. This system will help us ensure that the programme on offer at Lewisham Arthouse reflects the diversity of our local community in Lewisham.
