Kitchen at ArtHAUS, DegreeArt, 2012, 07

I visited one of those shows, which makes you think about the set up of a gallery, curating of the artworks and at the same time, is so inviting that I felt like staying for a while just sitting on one of the sofas or at the kitchen table enjoying the art.

Unique ArtHAUS is an exhibition at London’s Vyner Street by DegreeArt, in their Execution Room. It is running from May 3rd – June 30th 2012. Curated By: DegreeArt & Ryan Lanji, who talk to me on camera during my exploration of the space (watch at the end of the post). Designed By: DegreeArt, James Fuller, Karen Storey, Ryan Lanji.

This exhibition shows works by 25 artists and other collaborators, I’ll mention a few that really stood out for me. In the kitchen, I was impressed by Louise McNaught’s paintings on food packaging as well as Jana Emburey’s egg shell sculpture. In bedroom I had a close look at the works by Yuki Aruga and Chantall Powels’ wall pieces. Living room intrigued me with the wall painting installation and quirky objects by Darren Macpherson and Nicola Anthony’s sliced bank notes caught my eye too. Not forgetting the dining room and GonnyVan Hulst’s sheep heads set as meals on the table, and another wall painting installation by Tahnee Lonsdale. My favourite room was, maybe unexpended for you, the bathroom! The pieces by Janina Holloway, Myung Nam An and Claire Jackson made my day.

The strength of London art scene and its richness is one of the reasons why I settled exactly here. You can see a new show almost every day of the year. You can go to West, North, South London to see artists from across the globe. Today I actually want to write about the art scene in East London, where one of the busiest “gallery streets” is located. Of course it is The Vyner Street. Vyner Street is a place where in one night, you can visit four, five, six or even seven new shows! If that’s what you are planning to do this special “First Thursday” I’ll be seing you. I’ll be in Cultivate Gallery exhibiting in a group show called “It’s Green.” Here is a facebook event with details.
