Autumn Exhibition - Roman Ondak
Internationally acclaimed artist Roman Ondak presents an exhibition lasting one hundred days which brings together a new body of work exploring ideas around the passage of time and the intertwining of present and past. Symbolising a period of one hundred years, on each day of the show a pre-sawn disk is separated from the trunk of an oak tree to reveal the delineation in ink of one of its age-defining rings and the inscription of a key historical event which occurred in that year.
The exhibition’s title, The Source of Art is in the Life of a People, is taken from the inscription on the South London Gallery’s original nineteenth century marquetry floor designed by Walter Crane and revealed by the artist for the first time in many years as part of the show.
Exhibition supported by the Henry Moore Foundation and kurimanzutto
