For New York-based artist Amie Siegel’s first solo show in London, the South London Gallery presents recent works which explore the mechanisms through which objects become imbued with meaning. Known for her layered, meticulously constructed works that consider the undercurrents of value systems, cultural ownership and image-making, Siegel works across film, video, photography, performance and installation.

Quarry, 2015, projected at cinematic scale in the SLG’s main gallery, traces the excavation of marble from the deepest underground quarry in the world to its almost inevitable use in the modern luxury apartments of Manhattan skyscrapers. Beautiful, formally rigorous, and pointedly underscored by dramatic orchestral sound, this moving image work draws us into a mesmerising exposé of the multi-layered relationships between art, labour and value.

Fetish, 2016, presented in the first floor galleries, delves further into the stratified relationships between culture, value, and material by focusing on Sigmund Freud’s personal collection of archaeological statues and artefacts. Filmed at the Freud Museum in north London, it portrays the annual nocturnal cleaning of the psychoanalyst’s collection, suggesting an analogy between the careful, almost ritualistic removal of layers of dust from the objects and the intimate excavations and disclosures of analysis, both of which are normally hidden from view.

Proposing a conceptual link between Fetish and Quarry, Siegel presents a new work in the second upstairs gallery – a fragment of pink marble from the lobby of New York City’s Trump Tower. Offered for sale on eBay immediately following the 2016 US election, the marble fragment was purchased by the artist. The fragment’s transformations, from having had a clear use within a building into an apparently functionless piece of rock, and then into a historic relic, are both continued and emphasised through its incorporation into Siegel’s work. Parallel narratives are therefore set in motion, both with the material concerns of Quarry, and the potentially infinite circular conversations around the themes of objecthood and desire explored within Fetish.

The film-loving folk behind London’s Rooftop Film Club have brought the magic of the silver screen back to one of London’s earliest cinemas with the launch of Winter Film Club.

The cinema has taken residency in Peckham’s cherished Electric Theatre and is ending the run with a selection of Christmas showstoppers.

Staying close to their Peckham roots, the Winter Film Club has set up home in the stunning Edwardian cinema – First open to the marvelling public in September 1908, it was one of the first of the pioneering and influential Electric Theatres across London. After winning last year’s battle against turning the space into luxury flats, Winter Film Club is celebrating the theatre’s rich heritage by returning the space to its original purpose. With beautiful decaying walls, exposed original features and a 16’ x 9’ screen, Winter Film Club is sticking to the cinema’s original ethos – etched on the old theatre’s door – ‘To Elevate, Instruct and Amuse’.

Home to a licensed bar serving festive liquid refreshments and concessions to grab a snack or some freshly cracked popcorn to share. Settle in to a deckchair, slip the head phones on, step back into time and watch a festive favourite amongst one of London’s unique settings.

Taking over four floors of the Bussey Building in Peckham. Transforming the venue to give you the ultimate immersive fairground experience.

…a travelling troupe appeared on London’s outskirts, from whence no one could tell. They took up residence in an old and crumbling edifice and put on a fair that could compare with none encountered in this city before or since.

Though there were the usual fairground exploits – the games, the freaks, the stunts that inspired both terror and speechless awe – it was with a more mysterious power that entranced all who stumbled by. To chaos, sensual hedonism, devious misrule: in a giddy whirl we abandoned body and mind.

When we woke late the next day, all had vanished. We could only wonder whether it had all been real or the strangest and most fantastic of dreams.

DJ’s, fairground games and much, much more await… roll up, roll up, and don’t miss out.

Acclaimed American artist and reluctant pioneer of conceptual art Lawrence Weiner returns to the gallery with a solo exhibition presenting a series of recent sculptures that can be seen across the main and first floor galleries, and continue outdoors, running along the expansive Victorian brick wall of the SLG’s Fox Garden.

Visitors to the exhibition can venture further; beyond the gallery to an off-site work on the façade of the semi-derelict former Peckham Road Fire Station, located diagonally opposite the SLG.

Art Licks Weekend @ various venues / Thursday 2nd – Sunday 5th October 2014

Art Licks Weekend at various venuesTIME AND PLACE:

Doors: noon-18:00

@ Various venues across London

Free

www.artlicksweekend.com

The second year of the festival which showcases  work of pioneering young artists, curators, galleries and project spaces across London.

The dominant picture of the capital’s creative sector does not represent the wealth of projects happening amongst younger artists and curators in spaces outside of central London. Art Licks launched in 2010 and has since grown to provide an essential platform and voice for the lesser-known and under-represented activities that form the grassroots of visual culture in London.

Now in its second year, the Art Licks Weekend 2014 is a three-day event for which young galleries, not-for-profit projects, artist-run spaces and independent curatorial projects are open to the public with special events and exhibitions of work by emerging artists.

With over 70 participating spaces showcasing 200+ artists, the Art Licks Weekend is a unique event that encompasses the most exciting artistic talent and innovative ideas in London; celebrating the creative energy of this young art scene. The festival concentrates on those pockets of artistic activity in east and south London where some of the most interesting exhibitions, events, screenings and performances take place – including Bermondsey, Bethnal Green, Deptford, Elephant & Castle, Hackney, Hackney Wick, Haggerston, Lewisham and Peckham.

Preview night Thursday 2nd 18:00-21:00
