20 NOVEMBER 2015 - 13 JANUARY 2016

    Curated by Sarah Myerscough, "Random Growth" is a selection of works by established European contemporary ceramicists. "Random Growth" is an introduction, the first of a series of curated ceramic shows, which aims to present and promote the diversity and inventiveness of today’s European ceramic scene.

    The ceramicists on show are breaking away from the traditional functional vessel, moving towards the sculptural form, as they challenge the boundaries between craft and fine art. In doing so, they push the limits of their material and processes of making to create striking and sensual objects, reinvestigating mastered traditional skills while exploring new techniques and technologies.

    The displayed selection featuring works by British and European makers - Gordon Baldwin, Karen Bennicke, Thiebaut Chague, Christina Schou Christensen, Cathy Coez, Michael Geertsen, Martin Kaldahl, Jonathan Keep, Anne Marie Laureys, Aneta Regel and Bente Skjoettgaard - aims to reflect these new exciting directions taken by the medium.

  2. 30 October 2015 - Marian Goodman gallery presented an exhibition by Cristina Iglesias, this is the artist's first solo presentation in London since the her 2003 exhibition at the Whitechaple Gallery. Iglesias has completely transformed the London space through the installation of three sculptures with water in the ground floor.

    The three water of Tres Aguas are reflected in the gallery through the installation of three new fountains installed in the central gallery on the ground floor, With a raised, paved floor, Iglesias has created continuity with the exterior pavement leading to Golden Square. The fountains are lined with bas-reliefs organic forms, cast in aluminium, through which water ebbs, flows, gushes and drains in a carefully syncopated choreography of movement and sound that transforms the gallery into a sensory, alternate world where the constraints of architecture dissolve into landscape.

None of the works in the exhibition has been previously exhibited in the UK.

    There will be seven installation works at Ambika P3: the centrepiece will be NOW (2015), a powerful 8 channel video installation with surround sound originally commissioned for the Venice Biennale 2015. For this work, Akerman collected images from desert regions, specifically violently contested regions in the Middle East, her aim to present the current condition of violence and conflict as lived experience.

    Other works in the exhibition span from 1995 and investigate a variety of emotive themes such as issues around the border of Mexico and America (A Voice in the Desert, 2002), the atom bomb and Hiroshima (Maniac Summer 2009), woman reclaiming images of herself (In The Mirror), the dichotomous relationship between presence and absence (Maniac Shadows 2013), the Eastern bloc countries before the fall of Communism (D’Est 1995) and the sublime (Tombée de nuit sur Shanghaï 2007).
