The Portals Project presents Threadbare: A participatory workshop led by Wayne Lucas reflecting on drawing through sewing and memory


Come along to Bermondsey Project Space for Threadbare, a participatory workshop led by Wayne Lucas. In this workshop, you will use needle and thread as a drawing implement and tool for the exploration of memory.

The workshop will take place amongst The Portals Project | Part One: El Umbral - The Threshold An exhibition of works by Helena Goldwater, Lucía Imaz King, Wayne Lucas and Simon Vincenzi exploring portals and thresholds to other worlds; unbounded spaces, precarious caves, sites of uncertainty, displacement and risk. Works in moving image, installation, painting, thread and sculpture transform the gallery space.

Workshop suitable for people aged 16+

Wayne Lucas

Wayne Lucas’ work often takes on a biographical form, exploring his relationship to the body and the space it inhabits, while addressing the human condition, sexuality and isolation. Blurring the activities of painting and sculpture through a restless and obsessive accretion of materials including textiles, garments, found objects and paint, recent works are both a physical play with ideas and their representation. A reference to art history anchors the works, which oscillate between the two; a place between memory and fantasy. Selected shows include; Urban Bird, James Coleman gallery, London 2004; Obtractivism, Hales Gallery, London 2004, Prague Biennale, 2004, Deptford x retrospective, APT, London 2008. He was shortlisted for the Jerwood Drawing prize in 2008 and 2009. He was winner of the APT bursary to create a group show, Prognostic Bridewell, Apt gallery, London 2010 and The Thoughts of stuff, Royal Society of Sculptors, 2010
