Disturbance is an all female exhibition chosen to run up to International Women’s Day on Sunday 8th March.

‘Disturbance’ draws together work from 8 artists. Using different media: sculpture, video, photography, installation, painting, text and performance; the artists take conventional objects or images and disrupt them. Though not necessarily driven by a feminist agenda, all the work is underpinned by a feminine perspective.

Painter and curator Paula MacArthur has carefully selected this group of artists both for their alluring and unsettling imagery; and to convey the disturbance thrown up by the complex negotiations facing artists engaged with female identity today. ‘Disturbance’ ranges from painter Susan Sluglett’s lushly painted floral bouquets which have been trashed and trampled, Hermione Allsopp’s ‘re-made’ sculptures which push at the boundaries of attraction/repulsion and ideas of taste, to Mitra Saboury’s surprising and sometimes visceral films.

The exhibitions showcases high quality work by contemporary women artists, not espousing a particular feminist line but working within their own practices creating art which moves from the subtly subversive to the overtly challenging. There is humour alongside serious questioning of norms – all combining to provide a feast of visual excitement.

Pocket Money Loans

27th October – 8th November

As 77 Stroud Green Road had been a payday lender it was a perfect venue for Darren Cullen’s ‘Pocket Money Loans’. The signage was changed and the posters in the show were swapped but otherwise everything was left as it was, and the result was so convincing that every day people were inquiring about loans for them or their children, or getting quite cross about the whole idea of trying to indoctrinate children into the culture of debt. Press coverage was extremely good including the Independent on Sunday print edition, the Huffington Post and BBC London News.
