Evolutionary Love

Dean Kenning

Mark Tanner Sculpture Award Winner 2020/21
Private view: Friday 18th March 2022

Dean Kenning (b.1972 Hounslow, UK) makes kinetic and sound sculptures, as well as videos and diagrams. His work is engaged with political, philosophical and scientific questions, and is produced through hands-on material and process-based experimentation, and in the spirit of DIY problem solving

For ’Evolutionary Love’ in Kendal, Kenning has produced a series of semi-autonomous, interactive creatures, which crawl and drag themselves continuously around the gallery, avoiding obstacles and interacting with visitors and each other.

This new work is more technically sophisticated than Kenning’s previous kinetic artworks, but the effect is more ‘animalistic’ than ‘robotic’ as the focus remains on the aesthetics of movement, particularly nervous or compulsive movement.

Worlds Apart

New work by Rebecca Scott
Pop-up Exhibition
Friday 11 March 6-9pm & Saturday 12 March 12-5pm only.

 

Immigrants and Family Portraits 2021

The paintings of the Immigrants were inspired by the epic painting the ‘Raft of Medusa’ by Theodore Gericault, a tragic story of a shipwreck from the 1818/19, which hangs in the Louvre, and contemporary photographs from the internet of immigrants fleeing their homes with nothing but their lives. The images have such similarities despite them being 200 years apart, it fills me with compassion and makes me wonder what their lives and stories they have left behind are.

The juxtaposition of the Family Portraits show a dialogue between the different lives’ circumstances offer us.

Scott’s work shows a reaction, an empathic reflection of the images we see, the struggles of immigrants and people in a situation different to ours.
