Pavla and Lucia Sceranková: Surface Tensions

12 April – 11 June 2017

Wednesdays – Sundays 11am – 5pm

Pump House Gallery and Czech Centre London present an exhibition of new and existing work by sisters Pavla and Lucia Sceranková. Their first major exhibition in the UK reflects visual, material and conceptual influences on their work and its contexts. Pavla and Lucia Sceranková have developed the show in response to the unique architecture of the gallery and its setting in Battersea Park.

Pavla Sceranková’s sculptural installations and video-performances express minimalism, subtle humour and sensitivity to surroundings. They invite the viewer to interact and explore the relationships between perception and the perceived world. Lucia Sceranková makes photographic and sculptural installations, inspired by her surroundings, playing with illusion, reality and fiction.

In addition to the exhibition at Pump House Gallery a new, temporary public artwork will be sited in Battersea Park’s Pleasure Garden fountains, inspired by their research into the history of the fountains as part of the 1951 Festival of Britain. Accents of this research are picked up in the work on display at the gallery.

Tension is at the heart of the exhibition: the tension between two artists’ and their work that is being presented at such close quarters, the physical tension within many of the works and the tension of the artists inviting the audience to interact with certain works. The audience is invited to explore the site of Battersea Park as a whole and think about the meaning of the exhibition within the setting of the park.

This exhibition was initiated by Czech Centre London, organised in partnership with Pump House Gallery and curated by Pump House Gallery and Lily Hall.

Supported by The Elephant Trust; the Ministry of Culture, Czech Republic; and the Embassy of Slovakia in London.

Final display and workshop: Shared differences by Nicola Pomery

Final display and workshop: Shared differences by Nicola Pomery

11 June 2017, 12 – 4pm

Join Nicola to explore the final installation of her evolving InHouse project, through distant gazing, squinting for detail and everything in-between. Families will create interesting looking devices to support the viewing of all the work created over the past two months. These devices might help this process or playfully obscure our sight, leading to alternatives ways of investigating the work. Over the duration of the workshop we will discover the fascinating shared differences of all the personal objects created and the people behind their stories.

Drop-in workshops for all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Free, no booking required.
