MOST RECENT

Don't miss it - Join us from 12 noon tomorrow Saturday 21 April for a fascinating discussion with artist BENJAMIN DEAKIN about his solo exhibition 'Seeking News From Nowhere'
In conversation with Deakin will be:
James Derounian - Writer for Guardian and Principle Lecturer on Natural and Social sciences

Alison Hand - Painter, writer and lecturer with interest in art and architecture and research knowlege on utopia

James Hatton - Artist and writer with interest in surrealist writing and poetry.

Centred around exploring the notion that the search for a utopian environment is possibly a dystopian one in itself, the discussion will focus on the idea of Utopia, Dystopia and the legacy of the classic fictional novel 'News From Nowhere' by the 19th Century writer and poet William Morris on visual culture.
Deakin's work with its complex composition and blend of environments laced with architectural sensibilities explore the hybrid of the built / artificially constructed and the natural environment. It is the re-imagining of a utopia of ruins rather than the expected dystopian viewscape.

About @benjamin_deakin :
Benjamin Deakin's practice explores the way in which different cultures interact with their native landscapes and how certain places take on cultural associations as well as political and economic significance. This can be expressed through fictional hybrid spaces using a range of stylistic and historical references with densely layered surfaces in which architectural traces suggest ruination and geometric interventions that disrupt and bisect the composition and organic forms.

The inclusion of this written work in the discussions on utopia and dystopia is to relate the fact that the works in the exhibition, title and research for the paintings all lightly reference that classic novel.
