About the Apartment

The Apârtment, is now in it’s fourth year and we are looking forward to our 5th birthday event in November 2018.

The concept draws on the unusual homely layout of the studios, making it an open welcoming space for resident and invited artists to co-create and foster new networks. The Apârtment is about finding new ways to exhibit a spectrum of visual and performative work and explores a dialogue between the space, the art works and the visiting audience.

Guest artists Fruit Salad

Miriam Kilpatrick

Using performance as a vessel Miriam Kilpatrick challenges the fundamental behaviour we all share as a species. Control, power and comfort are examples of needs that everyone has which are explored in a basic form within her work. Website

Romulo Gonçalves

Brings attention to the issue of the precarious relationship between Man and Nature—and the interaction of Nature, Society and Technology— with inspiration from his immediate everyday experience of mass media and the contact with the textural elements. Instagram | Website Femke Winde Lemmens.jpg

Femke Winde Lemmens

Exploring the movement, colours and joy coming from the interplay between SAORI weaving—a process to uncover hidden power of creativity—and natural dyeing, creating her own colours from plants and kitchen waste. Instagram | Website

Maud-Barrett upcycling

Maud Barrett

Maud is a purposeful repurposer with extensive experience upcycling materials in both her artistic practice, and her personal life. Website | Article | Instagram

Gaynor Zealey

Gaynor Zealey

Gaynor questions “seeing is believing” and the viability of our visual perception when the interaction of light, shade, reflection and atmosphere, combine to confound ocular sensibility. She is inspired by the meeting of visual ambiguity, belief and doubt.

The core Apartment team

Teresa Witz

Teresa Witz’s oil paintings on wooden panels investigate patterns of behaviour in women’s handbag contents.

Paolo Fiorentini

Paolo Fiorentini’s biro drawings on paper depict incomplete portraits of individuals located in a distant past in an effort to rebuild an hypothetical long lost family genealogy.

Lynn Carter

From childhood reminiscences to actual observations, Lynn Carter’s small scale oil paintings depict how the East London urban landscape is changing.

Graeme Balfour

Graeme explores the human condition using refracted light through glass in photographic, video and mixed-media installations.
