For his first major solo exhibition in the UK, London-based artist Oscar Murillo empties his studio to present its contents in the main gallery space. Stitched canvases, drawings, sculptures and films, tables constructed from copper sheets, used as flooring in previous shows, and floor pieces made from masses of pulped biro drawings continue Murillo's practice of translating various aspects of studio endeavour into matter and then into form. Mobilising the physical remnants of distinct social situations, he exposes some of the contradictions and complexities apparent across socioeconomic, racial and cultural boundaries. For this show, he incorporates an active component in the form of a lottery, the individually screen-printed tickets for which are on sale from 2 September and are displayed in the SLG's first floor galleries. The first, second and third prize are each devised by Oscar Murillo and are revealed at a prize draw on 18 October.
