Kieran Wakeman - Festering Under Tortured Skin

Matthews Yard: Gallery

Wakeman will be exhibiting a series of photographs/photo manipulations  titled  ‘Festering  under  Tortured  Skin.’  The title relates to my struggles with Anxiety and Depression and are all self-portraits.  Creating artwork for me has always acted as escapism from my depression and it’s also been a way for me to take these feelings that build up inside myself and to make them into something tangible that I can seewhich from a young age helped by acting as a coping mechanism.

This exhibition is FREE.

Niko Raes - This Boy Needs Love

The Front Room

A naked white body hanging in the void…with water dripping and penetrating its skin like a Japanese torture … washing everything away … revealing its true nature … waiting to be loved… with only the sound of dripping water and an audience walking through it, becoming one with this boy. 'This boy needs love' is an endurance performance/installation that investigates and questions the paradox of aesthetics and pain in the search for a new beauty. The duration of this piece depends on the physical endurance of the performer’s body at the time.

Nicole Murmann - 1140 Ways Of Closeness

Croydon Town Centre

The piece seeks to create a space of intimacy and consent, between the performer and an audience member. In respect to the engagement of each person’s boundaries, we will explore intimacy and find our own mutual connections and find out how far we, as a team would like to go.

This site-specific performance is FREE and takes place in a public space. Visit us at The Front Room for directions to the location.
