More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Vulpes Vulpes exhibition "Views from Afar" 17th Oct - 8th Nov

Vulpes Vulpes exhibition
"Views from Afar"

with the launch of Simon Liddiment s Kaavous-Bhoyroo Quarterly Edition

Exhibition open:
17 October 8 November, Saturdays and Sundays, 11am 6pm
Exhibition party Saturday 17 October 6pm 9pm

Views from Afar, is a testing ground for a speculative hypothesis rather than a statement of fact and presentation of proof. Is there a discernible character to the work of those artists operating outside the main metropolitan centres of contemporary art production? Can a defining approach be discovered amongst groups of artists who work out of the same location, whether they are exploring similar themes or not?

Works on show include; Coco Crampton s upholstered hybrid art and craft object based on Marcel Breuer s Lattenstuhl; Nils el Grube s chain-sawn wooden figures and sliced man on an operating table; Robin Webb s self-mocking cartoonesque paintings; RJ Hinrichsen s film of an unfeasibly slow and deliberate walk along a dark street; Robert Filby s A0 photocopies that spatially reconfigure a single source photograph of a modern flint wall and Simon Davenport s painted and engraved plaster ingots and cardboard tube (Simon Davenport is also choreographing an event for the exhibition party).

Alongside the exhibition, Vulpes Vulpes will also host the launch of Simon Liddiment s Kaavous-Bhoyroo Quarterly Edition. Kaavous-Bhoyroo is an arts agency that curates events and commissions artists to produce limited editions.


Concurrently, Robert Filby has a solo exhibition mood boards at The Two Jonny s project space in Bethnal Green that runs until 24 October, while OUTPOST will be showcasing works by Coco Crampton, Simon Davenport, Simon Liddiment and Robert Filby at Zoo 2009, 16 19 October. Coco Crampton, Simon Davenport, Simon Liddiment, Robert Filby, Robin Webb and Kaavous Clayton have all had solo shows at OUTPOST.
