INHOUSE PROJECT: SPIN THE BOTTLE

  • 25 April — 8 July 2018 *on now

Pump House Gallery’s InHouse Projects invite visitors to explore the themes of the exhibition through hands-on activities. Alongside We are having a little flirt, exhibiting artist Anneke Kampman collaborates with Tom Varley and invites visitors to drop in and play a game which uses chance as a creative tool. In each workshop, we’ll spin to let the bottle decide what is made. Using a host of materials and tools we’ll create stories, scenes, songs and images using the bottle's instructions as a starting point. Over the course of the exhibition, materials produced will gradually fill the Project Space.

A non-competitive gameshow for all ages, ‘Spin the Bottle’ uses chance encounters as a creative tool.
This project is supported by Wandsworth Council and Arts Council England.

WE ARE HAVING A LITTLE FLIRT

  • 25 April — 8 July 2018 *on now

Wandsworth Council’s Pump House Gallery presents 'We are having a little flirt', a group exhibition offering perspectives on the uncertainty of attraction and desire, including artists Adam Christensen, Monica Espinosa, Anneke Kampman, and Erica Scourti.

Through playful interaction, the exhibition examines the theatre of small everyday exchanges whilst also considering the shifting politics of human interaction in a digital age. Works ranging from installation, video and performance test the boundaries of the artists’ relationships with friends, future and past lovers, and even their audiences.

The exhibition is curated by Paula Zambrano and Ned McConnell.

This exhibition is supported by Wandsworth Council, Arts Council England and The Mexican Embassy.

Site Specific Installation by Nicolas Deshayes in Battersea Park

  • 4 July — 19 August 2018

NICOLAS DESHAYES
4 July – 19 August 2018
Preview: 3 July, 6.30 ¬– 8.30pm
Pump House Gallery presents a new site-specific commission by Nicolas Deshayes, his first exhibition of outdoor sculpture. Taking the fountains of Battersea Park’s Pleasure Gardens and the nearby River Thames as his starting points, the sculptures develop Deshayes’ interest in bodies of water. Disrupting the traditional spectacle of the fountains, the works combine fleshly forms with industrial material to explore the interrelation between bodily and urban structures.

ERICA SCOURTI
Saturday 16 June 2018, 2 – 3pm
Developing her live sound work Slip Tongue from our current exhibition We are having a little flirt, Erica Scourti will work with a group of performers, juxtaposing recorded synthesised digital voices and live vocals in a song written from a collection of WhatsApp and Facebook chats between the artist and friends, confidantes and ex-lovers.

'Floats Road' by Charlie Duck

  • 25 July — 23 September 2018

CHARLIE DUCK
Floats Road
25 July 2018 – 23 September 2018
Preview: 24 July 2018, 6.30 – 8.30pm

Pump House Gallery is delighted to present the first institutional solo exhibition by Charlie Duck, who lives and works between London and Germany. Presenting a series of new large pigment works on paper, alongside ceramics and smaller studies, Floats Road continues Duck’s fascination with history, form and the unreliability of narrative.

Varied in scale, his pigment works are expressive and do not rely on a fixed subject, but rather hint at forms and motifs, often pulling together subjects from his day to day routines as well as wider historical or literary tropes.

ART NIGHT 2018
Performances:
8pm, 11pm – Anneke Kampman at Pump House Gallery
9.30pm – Adam Christensen at Battersea Park Pleasure Gardens

Pump House Gallery presents performances as part of the exhibition, We are having a little flirt, that invite audiences to engage with the unknowable possibilities of flirting.

Anneke Kampman presents a new performance that forms part of a new series of works by Kampman that address the capitalistic functions of the music-video form.

Adam Christensen presents a new performance in relation to Nicolas Deshayes’ site-specific sculptural installation in Battersea Park Pleasure Gardens. Engaging with Deshayes’ use of bodily form and urban infrastructure, Christensen will perform a series of readings and songs linked to his work in the exhibition We are having a little flirt at Pump House Gallery.
