Chelsea space. Jerwood/FVU Awards. Selected for the Jerwood/FVU Awards 2014 - 2015, Marianna Simnett used her first-stage development bursary to make the short film The Udder, which was followed up with major new work, Blood.

Jerwood/FVU Awards

Blood 2015 26 minutes 15 seconds Digital Video Blood runs thicker than water – which is maybe why it clots and coagulates. Emotions adhere to notions of blood, and what it represents; signifying kinship, invoking destiny; marking the body as a source of vitality or, on occasion, a site of shame. MARIANNA SIMNETT - Zabludowicz Collection. British artist Marianna Simnett creates fable-like film, performance, sound and light installations that examine the sense of intimacy yet anxious unfamiliarity we experience with our own bodies.

She particularly focuses on the means we deploy to control these bodies, both technological and cultural. The exhibition presents a group of recent work from the Zabludowicz Collection: three films The Udder (2014), Blood (2015), and Blue Roses (2016) – installed as a trilogy for the first time – alongside a sound and light installation Faint with Light (2016). Simnett’s films unfold from multiple, occasionally impossible perspectives (from within dreams or personifying internal organs), reflecting the fluidity of our identities as they are embodied and performed. Frieze:Marianna Simnett. That two audience members fainted during a recent screening of Marianna Simnett’s videos at the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion in London was neither surprising nor incongruous.

Far from disrupting the event, these instinctive responses to the sensory onslaught seemed entirely appropriate. (This interpretation was seemingly shared by the security guards, who were initially reluctant to clear space for what they assumed to be a choreographed intervention.) Marianna Simnett. Arcade - Caroline Achaintre. Goldsmiths CCA — KRIS LEMSALU. Kris Lemsalu’s 4LIFE, her first solo exhibition in London, presents newly commissioned works that manifest the stages of life; from birth to death, and ‘the bit in the middle’.


Lemsalu’s practice is a continual evolution of ideas, forms, anecdotes and personal histories, expressed through sculpture and performance, in which the division between life and art is blurred. In the 4LIFE cycle Lemsalu combines collected and crafted objects to create totemic sculptures in a visual narrative that gives shape to the formlessness of lived experience. Goldsmiths CCA — ALEXIS HUNTER.

Sexual Warfare presents key work by Alexis Hunter (1948 – 2014) made between 1968–86.


The first solo presentation of Hunter’s work in the UK since 2006, and in London since 1981, the exhibition brings her acerbic critique into dialogue with the contemporary moment and reinforces her importance both as an artist and a feminist. An influential figure in the Women’s Art Movement in Britain in the 1970s, Hunter is best known for her staged photographic works in which she used the medium as a tool to manipulate normative power dynamics within society through gender role-play and fetishised objects. Her images draw upon the violence within capitalism’s abuse of gender stereotypes and sexuality for the pursuit of profit.

Tate Modern-Anni Albers – Exhibition Guide. Talk at Tate Modern-Performance in Contemporary Art – Lungiswa Gqunta, Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum and Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa. What makes it possible for certain individuals’ stories to prevail, while others remain invisible, or disappear into oblivion?

What are the intricacies of institutional or structural erasure? And how does the unveiling of such silenced narratives contribute to collective thinking? The Showroom and The Otolith Collective raise these questions in a curatorial format in the London iteration of Women on Aeroplanes – an international multi-part research and exhibition project, which loosely borrows its title from the novel by Ghanaian writer Kojo Laing, and its ethos from his implosive deconstructed syntax. Women on aeroplanes. Alter Heroes Coalition — Mimosa House. OPENING 21 SEPTEMBER, 6:30–8:30pm22 SEPTEMBER 2018 – 19 JANUARY 2019Open Thursday–Saturday 1–7pm and by appointmentFREE EXHIBITION Featuring: Tomaso Binga, Leah Capaldi, Cibelle Cavalli Bastos, Gery Georgieva, Yolanda López,Kent Monkman & Gisèle Gordon, Adrian Piper, Tabita Rezaire, Super Sohrab and Super Taus The group exhibition 'Alter Heroes Coalition’ presents a selection of artworks which explore the concept of an alter ego.

Alter Heroes Coalition — Mimosa House

The artists included in the show reinvent themselves as unconventional and empowering heroes reflecting on cultural displacement, belonging and unbecoming. The show exposes the constructed nature of identity and challenges gendered behaviours by embracing the polyvalence of reinvented personas. The exhibition title marks the first step in Super Taus’s intent to form a Super Heroes Coalition – a community of every day super heroes who support each other and unite to achieve a common goal.
