Fine Art: Sculpture - Painting - Printmaking - Photography
This was the first year that ‘Fine Art’ Degree shows took place in the new purpose built Studios in the College’s Battersea campus*. All these disciplines converged in Howie Street - merging practice boundaries and interspersing performance and zany kinetic installations with the more traditional wall works and static monoliths.
LEXICART: word as object
An exhibition of word art presented in the form of dry cleaning. There are two original aspects to this exhibition the first being the word as art itself and the second dry cleaning as the form of presentation. There is some historical precedent for words as art objects both in mediaeval illuminated manuscripts in Europe and in Islamic texts. The "Artists Talk" event took place on Wednesday evening - 4 May 2011.
LEXICART: word as object
The central point of the exhibition is word as a portable object, and not as encrypted information expressed as writing on a flat surface. These are words as entities divorced from semantics, these are cricket bats used as murder weapons and kitchen knives used as screwdrivers. They are the foreign languages you cannot read and can only comprehend the aesthetics of the forms.

400 Women is a project conceived by artist Tamsyn Challenger in response to the brutal murder and rape of more than 400 women over a decade in the U.S. border town of Ciudad Juarez and the region of Chihuahua in Mexico. Some 200 artists have each painted one of the murdered women, confronting us with a safeguarding in our memory the dead and disappeared.
In the city fringe areas of Shoreditch the Design and media industries are thriving - so it is good to see a pocket of RCA graduates setting up shop in Sunbury Workshops located in the Boundary Estate which straddles the boroughs of Hackney and Tower Hamlets . The Boundary, a result of a radical social programme which demolished the east end slums of the infamous “Jago”, is now home to new “designer-makers”. Web and ‘ap’ architects, hi-fashion jewellers, and chic interior designers... are fast replacing the old trade ateliers: leather, shoe and handbag artisans, carpenters and furniture makers. During the London Design Week the new ‘artisans’ of Sunbury Workshops opened up the gates and welcomed everyone to see their wares.
