White Out: An Exhibition At The Hundred Years Gallery I Am Participating In

Whiteout’ by Jill Rock. From 3rd of December to 9th of January

WHITEOUT – Jill Rock has invited artists, musicians, poets, writers and performers to explore their relationship to WHITE whether it be scientific, social, mythical, psychological, religious or aesthetic. Celebrating that split second of WHITEOUT – the imagination is accessed and the artist has the freedom to improvise.

In times when all points of reference are being eroded things are known by their shadow – the whiter the white the darker the shadow.

Wherever in the world, painting fragments of wood picked up off the ground, Jill Rock tackles the problem of the relationship between object and subject, working where nature, culture and art meet.

“It is as if in the time consuming and concentrated process of finding, cleaning and painting fragments of wood I am attempting to break down the dualism of object and subject to create a unity. In the work Remember the Dance I became fascinated by the fact that as I built up the layers of white gesso the relationships changed as the shadow took on the dominant role.”

Opening: Thursday December 5th. 6:30;  CYCLOPS – performance by Jo Roberts and KMAT, plus the inimitable Grassy Noel.

Venturing forth from where Professor Jim Al Khalili’s ‘Shock and Awe’ (BBC) left off, Deptford based
artist Paul Malone takes you on a unique and controversial tour of the Universe. Originally devised
to introduce artists and designers to the wide range of forms inherent in plasma structures, this talk
follows contemporary speculations into the role that electro-dynamics play in the morphologies of
objects that we see in modern astronomy.
“From the smallest particle to the largest galactic formation, a web of electrical circuitry
connects and unifies all of nature, organizing galaxies, energizing stars, giving birth to
planets and, on our own world, controlling weather and animating biological organisms.
There are no isolated islands in an electric universe”.
David Talbot and Wallace Thornhill, 2004

This event is to fund raise for the charity :
SE1 United
‘Empowering young people to be leaders of their own lives.’

The talk is free to the public but please donate what you can.
It would be very helpful if you could RSVP to: plasmatalk@paulmalone.co.uk
