The London Group Annual ONLINE Exhibition

Sentinel XV is light on her feet, shown in a balanced motion, wrapped in long threads of silk and with stiletto daggers pinned in her head-dress. She transforms at will the textile threads veiling her into nets to catch and then dispatch any person threatening to hurt.

Wish You/We Were Here/There - The Power of the Postcard

This is an online exhibition of postcard sized art which can be based on where the artists see themselves now that the lockdown is easing, where they have been or want to go. How has the lockdown and the global pandemic changed them? Maybe they are looking forward to visiting more of the UK or escaping into a fantasy land where coronavirus never existed. View 39 works all contemplative of the current climate we live in, through the medium of video stills, sound recordings, sculptures, found objects, photos, prints, drawings, poetry & paintings.

14th May until 19th July 2020
My Favourite Work

Everyone has a piece of work that for some reason holds a special place in their heart. Maybe it was the one that changed their style or opened up a new aspect or maybe it was created because of something or someone. What is that special work for you?

Home Alone Together - Online collaborative project/exhibition hosted by Image Journal

'No Refuge Even Under the Dining Table' Photograph Week 4

Co-curated by artist S. Billie Mandle and visual arts editor Aaron Rosen, Home Alone Together is an online exhibition of twenty-five artists from around the world—aged twenty to ninety—that explores the shared, bounded environment in which people now live.

Quarantine is quickly redefining and reconfiguring how people experience home. It can be a space of refuge—representing safety from a nebulous, deadly threat, but also something of a pressure cooker. We are all caught up in a strange experiment of an uncertain duration, and even those fortunate enough to escape direct loss and trauma are forced to reckon with new realities—economic, emotional, spiritual—from the (dis)comfort of their own homes. In this unsettled moment, artists can help draw our experiences into focus.

Every week for the next three months, participating artists will contribute one photograph from a different room of his or her home. Together, these photographs—whether taken in a kitchen or bedroom, the world outside the window, or even the virtual space of technology—will articulate a new, collective picture of home.

We hope this project will create an opportunity to locate something of that quality Gaston Bachelard called “intimate immensity.” What we see has become limited, but not how we see. When the pandemic subsides and we re-enter the world, perhaps our way of seeing will have changed along with us. Maybe we will be more prepared to encounter transcendence, even—perhaps especially—in the mundane.

The Lockdown Chronicles - Online artists' interviews

'Sentinel XII - preparatory drawing (Drawing-book 51, p.99)' Graphite on moleskine paper, 20.8cm x 12.8cm. Sentinel XII's weapons are her flutes that play mysterious tunes and spirit away malevolence. Final large drawing on show in digital exhibition Isolation (see below).

The Lockdown Chronicles is a series of artist interviews carried out during the Covid-19 lockdown to artists around the world who have collaborated with hARTslane in the past 8 years. We believe that in times like these, it is important to reach out, connect and share common personal experiences, concerns and struggles, beliefs as well as practical or inspirational hidden gems. We hope that these artist stories will inspire other fellow artists as well reassure those who might feel alone or isolated or too overwhelmed to create.

Isolation - Digital exhibition

'Sentinel XII' Graphite on Awagami Kozo paper, 229cm x 97cm. Sentinel XII's weapons are her flutes that play mysterious tunes and spirit away malevolence. Preparatory drawing on show in The Lockdown Chronicles at hARTslane (see above).

Isolation and solitude are words that most visual artists will relate to, they work alone in a studio, a shed or at home so the prospect of enforced isolation may seem like the perfect time to make art. At the moment things are different though! It's not just isolation or social distancing, the entire fabric of society has been ripped apart before our eyes. The exhibition shows how The London Group artists are reacting to the current social and world climate.
