Troglodyte Antiphone | Leah Stewart | ASC Rotherhithe Police Station Artist
June 22 @ 5:00 pm - July 28 @ 5:00 pm
Troglodyte Antiphon is a new immersive installation at Intercession Gallery by frequent collaborators Sebastian Thomas and Leah Stewart. Using digitally printed images of stone the artists have transformed the gallery space into a facsimile of a cave through which the public can enter and encounter the works. Working with a range of tactile processes, including plaster sculpture, collage, ceramics, textiles, basketry, silk painting and drawing, slow and fast making combine to create fragments of an imaginary civilisation speaking through the detritus left behind.
The exhibition has been kindly supported by The Elephant Trust.
Leah Stewart (b. 1985) works across painting, textiles, sculpture and print. Craft techniques such as natural dyeing, basketry, ceramics, and crochet are used in combination with painting, drawing and traditional apothecary to make installations exploring animism, ritual and our relationship with the natural environment. Recent exhibitions include Wild Service at Kingsgate Project Space, London, A Casual Texture at Outset Contemporary Arts, London and Your Arms Are Full Of Flowers, My Mouth Is Full Of Stones at Lumberjack, London.
