Danielle Jacques, Betty Leung, and Eugenia Shishkina embrace the unexpected in the unique setting of a domestic houseboat. An immersive exhibition of prints, sculpture, projection, film and installation.


This thought-provoking exhibition showcases works from artists Danielle Jacques, Betty Leung, and Eugeniya Shishkina in a unique exhibition environment within a domestic houseboat. This unconventional exhibition inverts the houseboat into an immersive experience, where visitors are invited to have a cup of coffee or tea and explore the collection of prints, sculpture, projection, and installation.

Artists have employed chance as an artistic process since Dadaism, Duchamp and surrealism. It is central to practices ranging from the readymade, collage-based art, performance, and more recently digital art. It is this emphasis on serendipitous discoveries that link the works of Jacques, Leung, and Shishkina. Their approaches are as many as they are varied-feedback loops, kinetic sculpture, ceramics, and the fluidity of experience. From human minds to AI minds, these works sit at the edge of consciousness in a balance between chance and control.


Exhibition dates: Saturday 12th June through Sunday, 13th June 2021. Open to the public from 11 AM till 6 PM. Free exhibition.

Location: SLASH ARTS Gallery Boat, Regent’s Canal Tow Path, Moored between Kings Cross and Islington, Nearest access via Muriel Street, London N1
