New works by Rob Crosse, Susie Green and Georgia Horgan presented as three solo presentations at Jerwood Space. Diverse in content and materials, the solo presentations span painting, sculpture, installation, film, and photography, expanding upon the artists’ existing dialogues to position sex, intimacy and desire in a socio-political context.
Rob Crosse will present a new moving-image work set during a vintage sports car race, honing in on the meticulously choreographed routines of preparing each vehicle in the confines of the racing paddock. This will be shown alongside a series of sensitive and personal photographic portraits of male bodies.
Susie Green’s solo presentation will comprise new architectural scale paintings and framed works on paper alongside sound and sculptural works. These, when brought together, both question and celebrate ornamentation, intimacy and sexual pleasure.
Georgia Horgan will present a moving image work about The Poor Whore’s Petition, a satirical letter allegedly written by Elizabeth Creswell, one of the most successful sex workers and madams of the English seventeenth century.
Now in its third edition, Jerwood Solo Presentations, part of the Jerwood Visual Arts programme, offers a much needed platform for early career artists to make and show new work. Supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation, the initiative aims to foster and develop potentially influential artists who are at critical stages in their career as well as highlighting the value of research-based practice. The 2018 Jerwood Solo Presentations artists have been selected by the Jerwood Visual Arts team: Sarah Williams, Head of Programme and Oliver Fuke, former Gallery Manager.
