AboutFollowing a 6 month residency in Lewisham Arthouse, Nicky Teegan presents a collection of devotional objects, handmade oddities, sounds, texts and footage. Drawing from the every day, science fiction and local stories of mystical phenomena this exhibition will function as fiction rather than a hermetically sealed system of pedagogies.
Teegans' work deals with the fetishism, collecting and fanaticism. It specifically focuses on the fetishisation of everyday objects, outmoded technologies and found oddities and their subversion into devotional objects. It examines hidden meanings behind these devotional objects and rituals and their purpose. Underlying this, Teegans' work draws from dystopian science fiction and ufo cults.
Alongside the exhibition will be an event on 21 September, from 6pm.
You are invited to a dusk performative walk with the exhibition as a starting point. The performance will be a subversion of objects, science fiction and local stories of mystical phenomena, functioning as a fictional narrative and subverting the location and objects into a place of mystery.
This performance will last for 2 hours and tea and snacks will be provided at the end.
