a so-called archive, Onyeka Igwe @ LUX

LUX is pleased to announce an exhibition of moving image, sound and ephemera by Onyeka Igwe showing at LUX, Waterlow Park from 8th September to 17th October 2021.

Booking is encouraged but you are welcome to walk-in. Book here

With a forensic lens, Onyeka Igwe’s a so-called archive interrogates the decomposing repositories of Empire. Blending footage shot over 2020 in two separate colonial archive buildings—one in Lagos, Nigeria, and the other in Bristol, United Kingdom—this double portrait considers the ‘sonic shadows’ that colonial images continue to generate, despite the disintegration of their memory and their materials. Igwe’s film imagines what might have been ‘lost’ from these archives. It mixes the genres of the radio play, the corporate video tour, and detective noir, with a haunting and critical approach to the horror of discovery.

a so-called archive depicts the former vaults—along with their histories of hoarding, monetisation, documentation and now abandonment—as metonyms for the enduring entanglements between the UK and its former colonies. These sites were and continue to be home to purulent images that we cannot, will not, or choose not to see. -Mason Leaver-Yap

Igwe’s first solo exhibition at LUX a so-called archive, includes the film of the same name, as well as an outdoor audio piece and ephemeral display in the library expanding on the archives interrogated in the film. A collective reading event will also take place on Saturday 16th October – details to be announced. Audio described and captioned screenings will take place daily.

This exhibition is part of this year’s Curatorial Fellowship programme this broken piece of yard by Cairo Clarke. 


Screening Schedule

The runtime of a so-called archive is 20 minutes. The film will screen three times within a one-hour time slot.

Penny Elder: Beyond Confinement @ Highgate Gallery
Sep 21 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Penny Elder’s exhibition, ‘Beyond Confinement’, gives expression to her feelings during the past year or more of lockdown and the consequent longing for social connection again.  Her experience of this troubled time is depicted in a series of acrylic paintings and collages of ‘Lockdown’ and a series of screenprints entitled ‘Together Again’ and ‘Closer’.

The theme of ‘Beyond Confinement’ in her printed images is accompanied by colourful abstract and semi-abstract oil paintings of imagined landscapes.  Her use of striking colours applied in deepening layers on the canvas gives rise to a hope for future renewal from the natural world.  These fantasised landscapes are inspired by the Scottish countryside with which Penny has become familiar over more than thirty years.  She has a studio close to the coast in south-west Scotland where she produced many of the screenprints conceived during lockdown.

Some of her landscapes and abstracts are full of movement and exuberance while others are quieter, more peaceful and reflective.  Titles such as Rebirth, Out There, What will Emerge, Connecting and Seeing Beyond, describe images which are looking at the future and the importance of connectedness.  Penny enjoys the contrast of oil painting and printmaking which lead to very different images.  Her layering technique in both mediums is a strong characteristic of her approach.

This exhibition comes at a time when the restrictions of quarantine are being lessened and people are able to meet up again, although still facing a somewhat unknown and uncertain future.  The importance of close relationships has been uppermost in Penny’s mind during the pandemic as is illustrated in her exhibited work.

Apart from participating in many group exhibitions over the years, this is Penny’s ninth solo exhibition in London.  She is a retired psychoanalytical psychotherapist who has lived and worked in Muswell Hill for nearly 50 years and who has painted all her life.  She has a studio with Collage Arts in Wood Green and has had annual Open Studio weekends in the Chocolate Factory and Artspace 3 for twenty years.

See more of Penny’s work at www.pennyelder.co.uk; www.eastfinchleyopen.org.uk/artist-listing and instagram@pennyelder.

Exhibition continues until 23 Sept.  Highgate Gallery open Tues-Fri 1-5pm, Sat 11am-4pm, Sun 11am-5pm; closed Mon.

a so-called archive, Onyeka Igwe @ LUX

LUX is pleased to announce an exhibition of moving image, sound and ephemera by Onyeka Igwe showing at LUX, Waterlow Park from 8th September to 17th October 2021.

Booking is encouraged but you are welcome to walk-in. Book here

With a forensic lens, Onyeka Igwe’s a so-called archive interrogates the decomposing repositories of Empire. Blending footage shot over 2020 in two separate colonial archive buildings—one in Lagos, Nigeria, and the other in Bristol, United Kingdom—this double portrait considers the ‘sonic shadows’ that colonial images continue to generate, despite the disintegration of their memory and their materials. Igwe’s film imagines what might have been ‘lost’ from these archives. It mixes the genres of the radio play, the corporate video tour, and detective noir, with a haunting and critical approach to the horror of discovery.

a so-called archive depicts the former vaults—along with their histories of hoarding, monetisation, documentation and now abandonment—as metonyms for the enduring entanglements between the UK and its former colonies. These sites were and continue to be home to purulent images that we cannot, will not, or choose not to see. -Mason Leaver-Yap

Igwe’s first solo exhibition at LUX a so-called archive, includes the film of the same name, as well as an outdoor audio piece and ephemeral display in the library expanding on the archives interrogated in the film. A collective reading event will also take place on Saturday 16th October – details to be announced. Audio described and captioned screenings will take place daily.

This exhibition is part of this year’s Curatorial Fellowship programme this broken piece of yard by Cairo Clarke. 


Screening Schedule

The runtime of a so-called archive is 20 minutes. The film will screen three times within a one-hour time slot.

Rachael Weitzman: The Heath in the Waves @ Highgate Gallery
Oct 1 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

In 2020 and 2021, when waves of pandemic locked down London and elsewhere, the Heath became a place of escape and refuge for many.  Rachael Weitzman’s exhibition of paintings made during this period is a celebration of the Heath and the ancient trees that live there.

Rachael describes these paintings as ‘portraits’ of trees, the paint forming a lattice of trunks and branches, dappled with light or silhouetted against the sky – characterful and strange, rather than pretty or picturesque.  Her inspiration comes from Japanese prints as well as 20thCentury abstraction; she uses different elements to produce a particular style that conveys the solidity, scale and unique ‘personality’ of each tree.

When she first visited the Heath she was amazed at its size, losing her bearings and loving the feeling of being in an endless wilderness.  As she says, “There is something really magical about this area of woodland.  It’s so unusual, even outside London, to find such ancient trees in non-agricultural land.  The people who manage it have done such a fantastic job of maintaining it in an unspoilt way”.

It is now 150 years since an Act of Parliament saved the Heath from development, after a long campaign by activists to save it.  In recognition of the history of the area, its beauty and the way in which it has been of such solace to so many in recent times, ten per cent of sales from this show are being donated to Heath Hands, a charity which organises volunteers to maintain, conserve and educate people about the Heath.

Rachael Weitzman has lived in North London for most of her life.  She went to Chelsea College of Art and Design in 1992 and taught there for a number of years while painting and exhibiting at various galleries and art spaces in London.

These sites were and continue to be home to purulent images that we cannot, will not, or choose not to see. -Mason Leaver-Yap

Rachael Weitzman: The Heath in the Waves @ Highgate Gallery
Oct 6 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

In 2020 and 2021, when waves of pandemic locked down London and elsewhere, the Heath became a place of escape and refuge for many.  Rachael Weitzman’s exhibition of paintings made during this period is a celebration of the Heath and the ancient trees that live there.

Rachael describes these paintings as ‘portraits’ of trees, the paint forming a lattice of trunks and branches, dappled with light or silhouetted against the sky – characterful and strange, rather than pretty or picturesque.  Her inspiration comes from Japanese prints as well as 20thCentury abstraction; she uses different elements to produce a particular style that conveys the solidity, scale and unique ‘personality’ of each tree.

When she first visited the Heath she was amazed at its size, losing her bearings and loving the feeling of being in an endless wilderness.  As she says, “There is something really magical about this area of woodland.  It’s so unusual, even outside London, to find such ancient trees in non-agricultural land.  The people who manage it have done such a fantastic job of maintaining it in an unspoilt way”.

It is now 150 years since an Act of Parliament saved the Heath from development, after a long campaign by activists to save it.  In recognition of the history of the area, its beauty and the way in which it has been of such solace to so many in recent times, ten per cent of sales from this show are being donated to Heath Hands, a charity which organises volunteers to maintain, conserve and educate people about the Heath.

Rachael Weitzman has lived in North London for most of her life.  She went to Chelsea College of Art and Design in 1992 and taught there for a number of years while painting and exhibiting at various galleries and art spaces in London.
