By the Way is the latest project from a group of artists and a writer who collaborate under the banner of Things That Are There.

About

The group of seven artists and one writer showing at Lewisham Art House in March all make work that emerges from an engagement with the landscapes they inhabit and move through. 

Often this engagement begins with an unexpected encounter that demands attention.  It may be the sight of a single lit window in a darkened cul de sac, a gnarled piece of wood that assumes the shape of a figure, an abandoned frame that demands to be given a new life or a discarded piece of plastic that will be given the close attention of a precious stone. 

These incidental encounters and others like them have opened up new ways of working for the artists showing together in by the way.Through the diverse media of photography, performance, poetry, sculpture, printmaking and painting they have shaped and grown work out of these encounters.

We use the phrase ‘by the way’ when we want to introduce a new topic, something we have just thought of but needs to be said. We may not be quite sure of its importance but will share it anyway. It is this spirit of the incidental, tangential, happened upon, and the new that informs the working practices of the artists in this show and gives energy to the group.
