Lisa Slominski selects nine artists from disparate backgrounds for this group show with repetition at its core.


Spring Syllabus unites nine artists whose idiosyncratic methods blur the distinction between innate process and studied gestures. Resisting conventional art world labels - invariably based on education or formal training - Slominski invites us to look at how the psyche seeks familiarity through repetition, reflection, recording and reappropriation.

Discussing the participating artists, Slominski explains: Spring Syllabus is, in part, about exploring a wider totality of contemporary practices happening today. We’re interested in creating a dialogue amongst artists from distinct positions, including those from unexpected circumstances, rather than assigning restrictive labels like Outsider, self-taught, emerging and mid-career. 

Spring Syllabus brings together Brooklyn artists Raquel Albarran and Sophie Larrimore, Sydney-based Alasdair McLuckie, and six artists currently working in the UK: Richard J Butler, Nnena Kalu, Christian Newby, Andrew Omoding, Victor Seaward and Hidekazu Sogabe. These artists embrace repetition through physical process; from Kalu’s densely entwined sculptures to Sogabe's complex and very personal system of audio notation. Art historical references - including Modernism, Romanticism and Medieval tapestries - are juxtaposed with the outcomes of entirely intuitive influences. Together, they form an exhibition that is both familiar and unfamiliar; full of pattern, puppies, pareidolia and painted toes.
