MY LIFE IN LONDON
Curated by ActionSpace
21 – 27 March 2018
The Koppel Project Hive
My Life in London will show new work created over the past year, during which the two artists embarked on an intensive programme of individual and collaborative creative development.
Thompson Hall says of his work, “my paintings are a combination of the galleries in London and West African influences from my Mom’s side of the family… What I’ve done in this commission is different to what I’ve done before. It’s very much about, you know, how I see myself and how other people see me. ”
Ian Wornast says of his work, “ My work is about transport links and changes. I see and notice sites that are being built and they catch my eye… For this commission I am working on a very long drawing that is taking about 6 weeks. I am almost finished it. It’s one of the biggest pieces I have ever done!”
My Life in London is the culmination of an Unlimited Emerging Artist Commission and explores Ian and Thompson’s experiences of living and travelling around London. Unlimited is an arts commissioning programme that aims to embed work by disabled artists within the UK and international cultural sectors, reach new audiences and shift perceptions of disabled people.
ActionSpace supports the development of artists with learning disabilities and creates innovative projects for people with learning disabilities to engage with the visual arts. ActionSpace was launched in the 1960s and established as an independent charity in 1984.
