London artist David Stupple explores Islington's geography through this exciting new exhibition of drawing and photography. Stupple's work questions drawings' relationship with materiality, aesthetics and place. Whether a picture drawn whilst cycling around Islington or photographs taken from inside a moving van, he creates almost literal documents of movement that highlight the chaotic myriad of possibilities present in the simplest of actions. The drawings and photographs in this exhibition take Islington's topography as a starting point. The nooks and crannies cut by the historic movement of water form the inputs for a tilting table system that generates a series of chaotic line drawings and long exposure photographs. The works visualise Islington's space mediated through a process, the arm separated from the page, aspects of control apparently relinquished to the elements.
