David Austen - The Drowned

The Drowned
20 January–18 February, 2018
Matt's Gallery
92 Webster Road, London

David Austen’s solo presentation, The Drowned, is the inaugural exhibition at Matt’s Gallery’s new space at Ron Henocq Fine Art, 92 Webster Road, Bermondsey. Austen’s work will be the first to occupy a 3 x 3 x 3 metre cubic gallery space specially designed for the site. The exhibition sees the artist responding to the unique spatial constraints of a gallery space. The exhibition includes a series of watercolours the figures in which Austen likens to “naked ghosts” – survivors or victims of some unknown tragedy. With these, a new suspended sculpture will hang as if weightless in the space.
