CONVOY is an artist-run exhibition space founded in October 2014 by Dexter Dymoke.
Based at APT in Deptford, it will feature a loose programme presenting artists at all stages of their careers and working in all disciplines. A consistent theme will be the pairing of sculpture and painting. The inaugural show is excellent, but runs for this weekend 29-30 Nov only. Here's my text for the show:
|Blue Curry: Untitled|
|Aglae Bassens: Cihangir Blues|
|Aglae Bassens: West Coast|
Both artists – consistent with the near-anagram of ‘absence’ in ‘Bassens’ and the gloomy sub-meaning of ‘Blue’ – catch the way in which even the most enjoyable holiday is infected by the commonplaces of the home towards which it moves , just as what is novel there is commonplace if that’s your home. Yet there are flashes of beauty here, and why not? When else can we enjoy life but in numbered days?
|Aglae Bassens: So Long|
