New Work - Mixed Medium
Lindsey Mendick & Paloma Proudfoot + Stevie Dix - Proudick + Magnesium
Stevie Dix - Makes paintings that are heavy and thick, composed in a personal language where figures and symbols are metaphors for intimate feelings and, at times, political perspectives.
For her first solo show at the gallery, Dix presents a new body of work that continues her interest in the cold and hard-edged character of urban living, contrasted with an investigation into the legacy of craftsmanship and artisanal practice in post-war Belgium.
Proudick - An immersive display of teenage nostalgia and self-discovery, the show follows from their eponymous exhibition here curated by Marcelle Joseph in 2018 and an off-site project with the gallery at Ballon Rouge Club, Brussels in 2019.
Furnished with large-scale, cosmic interventions to the gallery space and an array of clothing, ceramic, embroidery and stained glass works, Today but not today explores the alluring yet baited image of adulthood we consume in our adolescent years, its compulsion toward glossy standards of self-improvement and the mercurial worlds of futurism and desire it manifests in.
