Tim Spooner - A New Kind Of Animal

Wed-Sun: 11-5pm

Southwark Park Galleries present an extensive installation by multidisciplinary artist Tim Spooner for his largest UK solo exhibition in a visual arts organisation. Spooner has been creating immersive sculptural interventions and performances since 2010, which have been predominantly experienced within theatre settings. Split across both out galleries, Spooner will work on a more ambitious scale than has been possible before.

A new commission for Dilston Gallery will continue Spooner’s exploration of using mechanics and animatronics to bring liveness, agency and unpredictability that transforms the audiences’ perceptions and expectations of what makes a sculpture. Our Lake Gallery will exhibit the breadth of his wider practice by staging a theatrical encounter of his recent works in collage, painting, sculpture and performative objects.

Commissioned by Southwark Park Galleries, London, and generously supported by Arts Council England and The Paul and Louise Cooke Endowment.
