13 – 22 November 2015

The Bread and Jam series gives artists the run of a near-empty, soon-to-be-remodelled house in Brockley. In the third show, eleven artists explore the territory between order and disorder, potential and realisation, unformed and defined.

Each has chosen a shape to insinuate or impose – to varying degrees – in advance of the fuller reshaping to come. Yet it doesn’t seem conventional family living will follow: none of the artists define themselves as purely a man, although Brian Dawn Chalkley does gain the rare distinction of featuring in all-male (Chercher le garcon at Mac/Val, Paris) and no-male exhibitions in the same year. Ten men are, however, busy doing the washing in Claire Macdonald’s film Launderette, and Frances Richardson is fully in control of moulding the phallus. What can it all mean for the shapes we’re in? Jennet Thomas’s film threatens to provide an answer, but it keeps slipping away…
