This autumn sees the launch of an exciting new pop-up gallery project, Folie à Â Deux, with the exhibition entitled 'I have this strange kind of feeling and I just can't place itâ¦' to be held at Utrophia Project Space, Deptford. The exhibition will run from 11 - 28 November 2010, and is a group show displaying the work of five artists: Judith Lyons, Nina Mankin, Giulia Ricci, Keith Roberts and Nina Royle.
All of the works engage in diverse yet equally beautiful, stirring and insightful ways with the notion of âenvironment', from delicate installations unlocking the poetic qualities of the flotsam and jetsam produced by today's disposable society, to camera-less photographs exploring the impact of scientific advances on the natural world. Other works investigate the roles played by memory and emotion in our perception of the world around us, or consider the finely-balanced relationship between chaos and order underpinning the systems of both mankind and nature. Together, these reflective pieces subtly reveal our complex relationship with our environment, the ways in which we shape it, and are in turn shaped by it.
The exhibition will be complemented by a series of events including talks by the artists about their works and a number of musical evenings, including performances by up and coming folk bands and jazz musicians - watch this space for more information.
