South London Gallery Fire Station, London, London, United Kingdom
Artist Susan Cianciolo presents a solo show across the South London Gallery Fire Station, inviting visitors into her unique creative world.
Drawing together elements inspired by craft, fashion and daily domestic life, Cianciolo intuitively combines all sorts of materials, from fabric off-cuts, buttons and glue, through to cardboard boxes, diary pages and her young daughter’s drawings, into works in which the seemingly casual and low-fi nature of their construction is at odds with the precision with which they are composed.
The works in the show are selected from several different groups – 'Mannequins', 'Kits', 'Tapestries' and 'Games' – but are clearly part of a single, overarching project. Cianciolo’s very particular sensibility is both intimate and generous, inspired by her daily life as an artist and mother, but equally by her deep spirituality.
The SLG has step-free access throughout its public spaces and accessible toilets.
