Millington | Marriott are pleased to present London based artist Lois Farningham's first solo show with New Gallery London, Specious Present. Specious Present comes in as the forth instalment of a five part exhibition series from Millington | Marriott's curator residency at New Gallery London. Lois Farningham graduated from The Bartlett School of Architecture in 2007. Since then she has worked for architects in Edinburgh, New York and London. This year she completed an MA in Fine Art at Camberwell College of Arts where she researched transformative materials, active agents and potential energy. We experience time in intervals: an interval of time is an uninterrupted moment where our perceptions are considered to be in the present. Our perception of time can be manipulated by the form in which the transformation takes, the duration of the transformation, and the point at which we come into contact with the transformation - be it the beginning, middle or end. The tension created by potential movement dislocates the viewer in time as they anticipate change. The orchestration of transformative materials that are sensitive to their environments provides a platform for incidental interactions to occur. The disappearing line will last only a moment, like a worm underneath the surface until it fades under the fast approaching new impression. One feels a certain glee from interacting with something - in the slightest possible way - when their influence is temporal and unrecorded. One cannot measure this interactivity as a success or failure, just mere play for the wicked.
