The mythological, the spiritual, and just rotten bad dreams weave tightly into the consciousness that we each use to navigate the everyday.  It isn’t possible to police the separation between the rational and any number of other projected (or embodied) anxieties.  Each glance is haunted by a miss-seeing, and each utterance is overshadowed by storms of contradiction, self-doubt and regret.  The only way to keep going is to welcome these spectres to be a real part our selves and our stories.

This exhibition does just that.  It welcomes these interruptions, allowing them to be manifest as material presences with their own potent agency in the forms, bodies and narratives that inhabit a gathering of painting and sculpture.


16:9 billboard commission by Joy Gerrard 'The North is Next'

PV Friday 29 June 2018 6 – 9pm

16:9 is a billboard attached to the yard-side of Kingsgate Workshops and visible from the street and from Kilburn Grange Park. Kingsgate Project Space commissions new works from emerging and established artists specially for this site. This summer, we have commissioned Joy Gerrard to make a new work for this site. The piece is called "The North is Next" and is a drawing from a photo-collage of the crowd in Dublin Castle on 26th of May, 2018.

Join us for th launch of both projects on Friday 29 June 2018 6-9pm.
