Overview

This exhibition marks the conclusion of the 2017 Jack Petchey Start Programme, bringing together works by pupils from ARK All Saints Academy, Compass School, Evelyn Grace Academy, Harris Academy at Peckham, Harris Girls Academy East Dulwich and Tuke School.

Artists Chloe Cooper, Rosemary Cronin, Marysa Dowling, Lucy Joyce, Jasleen Kaur and Helen Rousseau worked with the pupils to explore ideas and share skills based on their artistic practices. Generated from these diverse starting points, the works represent a range of ideas and art forms, including a wall of inspiration, rainbow chapattis, a printed newspaper and video works.

Please join us for our public opening on Thursday 13 July, 5.30-7.30pm.

Biographies

Chloe Cooper makes performative tours, lectures and instructional videos to propose something quite improbable to groups of people to be worked through together. This something quite improbable normally splashes about in the rocky waters of human relationships and acts as a way to rummage around in the processes of getting people on board, wading through scepticism and exploring the ways in which we locate ourselves in opposition to each other. Chloe has recently exhibited and performed works at What Happened Between? with Kerri Jefferis and Sophie Chapman, Lewisham Arthouse, London (2017); Love is Love, Catalyst Arts, Belfast (2017); Dedications, ArtReview Bar, London (2017); Pop Up Feminist Library, Tate Modern, London (2017); Bedfellows: Sex Re-Education, Tate Modern, London (2016), Encounters, Galleri Mejan, Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm (2016), Art From Elsewhere: Walk and Talk, Arnolfini and Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, Bristol (2016). 

Rosemary Cronin is an interdisciplinary artist working particularly with performance, film and print. Her practice is driven through keen research in gender, psychoanalysis and subculture. Rosemary has exhibited at the ICA, The Wallace Collection and The National Portrait Gallery.

Cronin is a writer and lecturer, with publications including Art-speak: A glossary and A Vehicle for Revolution. Cronin also contributed to Maria Fusco's The Cosey Complex: A Reader. Her practice is done in tandem with working on learning programmes at Zabludowicz Collection, The Photographers' Gallery and The Gerald Moore Gallery.

Marysa Dowling’s photographic practice is participatory and rooted within portraiture. Many of her projects have an international focus as she works across several communities and cultures simultaneously to explore universal, human and democratic themes of communication and interaction. Participation and collaborative possibilities are vital to her process.

Dowling has worked on commissions, projects and residencies in the UK, Ireland, Los Angeles, Cuba, South Africa, Mexico, India and Lebanon. Exhibitions include Journeys | Recoriddos with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Movement of an Object at The Photographers’ Gallery, How We Learn at Belfast Exposed and Reach Out at Tate Modern & MARCO Mexico, Portraits: Shared Experiences, Galeria Jardin, Mexico. 

Lucy Joyce makes unexpected sculptural interventions often residing in the public realm: outdoors, interrupting or punctuating a given landscape or architectural space. She takes over familiar spaces that surround us; the construction site, house or billboard to site momentary actions that cause the passerby to stop for a moment, look at their surroundings, re-look and quite often look up.

Lucy has worked on a number of public commissions alongside exhibiting and teaching. This year she was Artist in Residence at Studio 5 Porthmeor, Tate St Ives Artist Programme and has exhibited recently  in London at Chalton Gallery, 53 Beck Road, ICA and Whitechapel Gallery

Jasleen Kaur is a Scottish Indian artist based in London. Brought up in a traditional Sikh household in Glasgow, her work is an ongoing exploration into the malleability of culture and the layering of social histories within materials and objects. Refashioned objects are often based on instinct and resourcefulness, reflecting a hybridity of national custom and reconsidering the realities of materiality, usage and everyday routine.

Recent commissions including the Victoria & Albert Museum, Goethe Institute, Baltic 39, Figure Three and Art on the Underground. Her work is part of the permanent collection of the Royal College of Art and Crafts Council.

Helen Rousseau works with drawing, sculpture and installation. Through processes of making, she pursues a network of logic tuned within the formal and sometimes humorous structures of the work. In 2005 she was awarded an MFA in Sculpture from the Slade School of Fine Art and has exhibited in this country and abroad. Work within a variety of learning and play contexts extends her studio practice through an interest in the processes and possibilities of collective making. She has developed and delivered sessions for organisations such as Tate, The British Library, South London Gallery and the National Maritime Museum.
