POTHOLES is a new exhibition by London based artists Sarah Davis and Alex Stone and Liverpool based artists Josie Jenkins and Max Mallender. The collective was brought together by Alex Stone, who recognised connections between the artists’ practices after following Sarah Davis’ time at City and Guilds Art School and exhibiting with Max Mallender and Josie Jenkins in Threshold Festival, Liverpool, in 2018. The work exhibited explores the urban environment through a variety of mediums, made in direct response to the exhibition opportunity at SET Lewisham. The collective has worked with the boundaries presented by the lockdown restrictions to present an exhibition that is viewed from outdoors, through the windows of the exhibition space.
The exhibited work includes paintings linked to Lewisham from Liverpool via Google Street View, a modular floor that explores the repetitive cycles of throw-away culture, sculpture with an accompanying sound piece, that draws on the city's independence and relationship with water and everyday materials of the city transformed into sculpture.
Audio, video and contextual information accompanies the physical exhibition, accessible through a QR code displayed alongside. For the full experience when visiting, please bring headphones.
from 5pm 24th to 29th November viewable 24/7 through the window
Artists: Sarah Davis, Josie Jenkins, Max Mallander, Alex Stone.
