Grey Gallery is a nomadic entity working with artists, writers and musicians on a project by project basis and returns to Eleven Spitalfields, newly reconfigured with a beautiful double height main gallery and retaining the ground floor of the early Georgian townhouse which hosted previous exhibitions since 2010. This new exhibition brings together the work of 7 artists who work either directly or indirectly with photography.
Greta K. Andresen’s photographs of dereliction present the aspirations of designs for living. Her interiors expose a sense of being and the exterior shots of these ruins and their place in the landscape remind us of life’s transience. In transit, for better or worse.
Liz Rideal complements the other photographers in this exhibition in a lateral sense. The ghostly drapes floating in these classical interiors present a positive view of the world. All might be lost but we are also made of liquid and air and it is good to be reminded that the built environment is only spiritual
while we occupy it.
Miranda Argyle’s drawings and stitched pieces connect to her photography. Like WG Sebald, her work speaks of edges and territories whether it be a hat, a jacket, a room, a building or even a natural space temporarily occupied. Like Rideal and Abrahams, the beauty of the materials is seductive and hopeful.
