You are invited to join us for an inspiring display of contemporary art from some of London and the South East's most talented graduates. Islington Arts Factory’s sixth Metamorphose exhibition will present works in drawing, painting, site-specific installation, large-scale print, photography and sculpture.
The unique nature of Islington Arts Factory has inspired site specific installation work from Katherine Tolladay, as she references the multi arts nature of the centre in a new collaboration with performance artist and choreographer Antje Hildebrandt and Simon Veis will create a new drawing installation inspired by the fascinating history and architecture of the building.
Sculptor Dylan Shields has created a new large scale cardboard piece based on The Incredulity of Saint Thomas by Bernardo Strozzi. Also on a grand scale is Jennifer Price’s mono print of a shopping trolley on to fabric.
Just-Us is challenging series based on Jessica Piddock’s correspondence with criminals awaiting execution on death row in the USA; from this she has developed an installation especially for Metamorphose featuring a portrait of Steven Woods who was executed on the13th September this year.
David Cutts presents key works from his series exploring early childhood memories of the Fairground. Kristian Evju has created two new drawings for Metamorphose, working. His enigmatic imagery evokes limbo states, where animal and human protagonists are frozen in dramatic juxtaposition.
Other exhibitors include Chloe Precey, Joseph Goody and Jonathan Kelly who will exhibit highlights from their degree show presentations.
