'Always Present' Exhibiton
29 April 2021
'What might have been and what has been point to one end, which is always present'
Burnt Norton, TS Eliot
‘Always Present’ is an online exhibition that brings together the work of 25 contemporary artists. Featuring photography, video, objects and printmaking; the works on show centre around themes of identity, remembrance and the transient nature of images.
From familial histories to memory loss, hand gestures to flying children, the works on show cover a broad range of creative responses and highlight how our past is always caught up in the present, and projecting itself into the future.
Guest artists: Alexandra Diez de Rivera, Greg Sand, Ioanna Sakellaraki, Veronica Losantos

'My work explores questions around memory, mortality and identity through emotionally charged and psychologically ambiguous objects and spaces which are imbued with history. My practice looks at the vacant space, the empty shell, the skin of things, and is informed by my own European heritage and research around the subject of Aura in art'

Book your visit here
SW Darkroom presents our first group exhibition, Can We Dance Again? showcasing the work of 14 artists who use the Darkroom as a space within their practice, working with both still and moving image. As we take a collective sigh of relief at the prospect of a new normality, we reflect together on the work made over the past year both within SW Darkroom and beyond.
There will be a private view on the 5th of June and the following day on the 6th of June will see a series of walk-around tours at 2pm, 3pm and 4pm, please select these tickets if you wish to join a tour.
