PV: 6 July, 6-8PM
Project Native Informant proudly presents Deep Nap, a solo exhibition by Curaçaoan artist Rinella Alfonso. In her first UK exhibition, Alfonso constructs poetic, biomorphic abstract channels between misty memories and hallucinatory fictions. Using imagery informed by archives that she has collected over the years, rendering ordinary objects and personal symbols, her paintings become evocations, carrying knowledge we cannot fully understand but intuitively feel, speaking in a decentered and transformative language.

Mo Shaolong: Spiritual Politicians
7 July – 29 July, 2022
PV: Thursday, 7 July, 1-3PM
Jack Bell Gallery is pleased to present a solo show of new paintings by Mo Shaolong. This will be the artist’s first exhibition in the UK. Shaolong (b.1989, Henan, China) currently lives and works in Shanghai. Through his use and reflection of cinema4D software, Mo seeks to redefine the long-standing genre of portraiture. Mo sees himself as belonging to the generation informed by globalisation, the Internet, and digital technology. In this sense, his work hints at the fact that every present-day individual is a cyborg, whose ethos exhibits a human-computer hybridity.

PROTEAN. A solo exhibition of new works by Max Maxwell. Four years after his last solo show at No 20 Arts, the exhibition presents an exciting continuation of Maxwell’s central interests: materiality, transformation and alchemy.
