FRANKO B: STILL LIFE

Booking essential £12 / £7.50 concessions
The South London Gallery relaunches its live art programme, following
refurbishment, by welcoming the return to the SLG of artist Franko B with
a performance of Still Life on 12 November. The performance is invested
with a serene and quiet pathos by the artist, who lies naked and bleeding
upon an illuminated bed.

PLENGE JACOBSEN: SOLO SHOW
14 January – 27 February 2005
Danish artist Henrik Plenge Jacobsen’s sculptural objects, scenarios,
performance pieces and elaborate installations play on our responses to
controversial or politically loaded subjects. For his first solo show
in the UK, Jacobsen will transform the South London Gallery space with
a combination of new and existing works.

3 – 5 March 2005

DEPTH OF FIELD: KELECHI AMADI-OBI, TOYOSI ODUNSI, AMAIZE OJEIKERE, EMEKA
OKEREKE, JAMES-IROHA UCHECHUKWA AND OLUTOYIN SOKEFUN
The urban life of Lagos, West Africa, including corruption, affluence,
poverty and a thriving hip hop scene, is the inspiration for the work
of a group of young artists showing contemporary photography at the SLG.
The exhibition is the SLG’s contribution to next year’s London-wide
Africa 2005 celebrations.
11 May – 26 June 2005
Winner of the 2004 Beck’s Futures award, Saskia Olde Wolbers’
video work straddles the worlds of visual fantasy and narrative reality.
In previous work detailed models of fictional locations are accompanied
by extraordinary personal stories from unseen narrators. For her solo
show at the SLG Olde Wolbers will create entirely new work.
