Lewis Betts and Stephen Cooper co-curate a group exhibition titled 'Caesura et Vide Supra' to explore haptic thinking in relation to the architecture of Lewisham Arthouse. The show is part of Art Licks Weekend and Deptford X festival.
Caesura et Vide Supra* brings together new painting and printmaking, exploring what the Finish theorist Juhani Pallasmaa describes as ‘tactile ingredients in our otherwise ocular experience of architecture’.
Six artists present new work conceived in response to the architecture of Lewisham ArtHouse, an Edwardian Carnegie building originally erected to house a library. Their new work considers possibilities for playful relating to architecture, understood both as the most concrete of structures and as an imaginary relatedness.
* Caesura -- n. a complete break, pause or interruption
* Vide Supra -- see above, see earlier (in the text)
