    Clive Hodgson: The Thing About A Name Is That It Doesn’t Refer To An Object

    06 March - 05 June 2021
    First Floor Gallery Just what is that makes a Clive Hodgson worth a second look? The reason is that it is intelligent painting, but at first glance one's gaze tends to slip of the surface. In general the parameters of his work appear simple: marks, gestures, blotches, spatters, but also elements drawn from representational painting, like cross hatching, outlines, as well as graphic elements like crosses, circles. In the past some of his paintings have used decorator's efects, like ragging, sponging and sprays. More recently, numbers, suggesting a countdown or resembling a list on a page, have also been deployed. In a large 2017 work, Untitled (CH3092), faint circular marks take up most of its background. It's like a bored kid doodling. Who does that?? And yes, that's what makes his paintings joyful. The marks ideate the language of representational painting, but what is representational mark-making without representation? This question...

    Group exhibition featuring works by Christiane Blattmann, Eva Gold, Sebastian Jefford, Stanislava Kovalcikova, Tala Madani Ground Floor 'The original field of aesthetics is not art but reality-corporeal, material nature. 'As Terry Eaglton writes: 'Aesthetics is born as a discourse of the body' It is a form of cognition, achieved through taste, touch, hearing, seeing, smell - the whole corporeal sensorium. The terminal of all of these-nose, eyes, ears, mouth, some of the most sensitive areas of skin- are located at the surface of the body, the mediating boundary between inner and outer. This physical-cognitive apparatus with its qualitatively autonomous, nonfungible sensors (the ears cannot smell, the mouth cannot see) is 'out front' of the mind' - Susan Buck-Morss, Aesthetics & Anesthetics, October, Vol. 62 Corps (French for Body, also derives from the Latin Corpus) revitalises an attention to what Susan Buck-Morss refers to as the 'sensible experience' of the material...

    Julia Adelgren: The Watery Realm

    24 April - 19 June 2021
    Lower Ground Floor MAMOTH is proud to present The Watery Realm, the first presentation of the work of Julia Adelgren in the UK, featuring a selection of paintings produced over the course of the last four years. Born in Sweden, Adelgren has lived and studied in Stockholm, Bergen and Düsseldorf and is currently living and working in Copenhagen. Highly attuned to the natural world, everyday life in these diverse cities has provided her with constant visual stimuli, especially the sweeping mountainscapes, dramatic skyscapes and earthly colour tones of Bergen's natural scenery. Taking its title from Yuko Tsushima's story of the same title, Adelgren's exhibition at MAMOTH uses water as a poetic protagonist, and chimes with the more folkloric events of Tsushima's story. Her work hones in on the interplay of light and reflection on the surface of water, whilst rendering water as a perpetually unknowable body, enveloping, sometimes threatening, but...
