Preview: Watching Shadows Against A Wall


Three London artists, Paul Abbott, Simon O'Donovan, Sean Raggett have been working away in deepest south-east London over the last three weeks to put together a brand-new exhibition, Watching Shadows Against a Wall. This is going to be interesting: three sculptural works and two large light box photographs presented for the first time, in the cavernous setting of a former fire extinguisher factory in Hither Green.

Incorporating photography, taxidermy, light installation, found objects, this three-pronged art attack looks at life between inanimate objects, the science of vision, darkness and looking and 'defeatured landscapes'. We read with interest that a stuffed fox will be key to one of the works, giving appropriate limelight to the humble urban fox.

And have we mentioned it's on for one night only? It's on for one night only, tomorrow night, so keep your eyes open if you're heading south-east - head for the fire extinguisher factory, 174 Hither Green Lane, SE13. More information on Watching Shadows Against a Wall on the website.
