The Wick List

Viewing IRL (In Real Life), Timothy Taylor London

Just as we embrace the new normal comes this group exhibition of paintings, sculptures and textile-based works, which celebrates the joy of social and sensory experience, while also considering the profound impact of Internet culture on the ways we work, socialise and connect with the world.

From textured tapestries to hand-painted canvas wall hangings, many of the works on display are characterised by heightened materiality — a nod perhaps to our collective longing for physicality in lockdown.

Antonia Showering, William Brickel and Honor Titus express their desire for touch and connection in paint, while Alma Berrow’s quirky plates of food pay homage to the hedonistic pleasure of eating and drinking among friends and family. (Her ceramic fried eggs look good enough to eat!)

Uncanny gouaches by Rebecca Ackroyd are shown alongside arresting self-portraits by Lydia Pettit and tapestries by Kesewa Aboah, who uses her own body as a tool during the creative process. After the year we’ve had, a show devoted to our lives online and off seems pretty apt.
