Zanny Mellor

RENDER PERMANENT

Lewisham Arthouse

14 - 23 June

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.
