THE SKY IN A ROOM
Part of DeptfordX
A twin installation exploring the theme of private/public space by taking the usual domestic setting out of its context. The project addresses the lack of outdoor public space to meet in New Cross by offering a playful platform for casual encounters and organic communication. By swapping the paradigms of indoor and outdoor, ‘The Sky in a Room’ questions the context of art in relation to space, and the gallery wall as the filter between art and non art. The value of art is the difference it makes to an individual or a group.
Video projections and -installations by: Andrew James, Antonella Ferrari and Sarah Doyle.
LET ME GO TO THE WINDOW
OCTOBER 2013 - APRIL 2014
A compelling new site specific art project created for and in response to the gallery window. From October 2013 until the end of March 2014, ten selected artists created site specific and temporary public artworks. Every two weeks a new artist engaged with the one and only window in Harts Lane as a platform to evoke, celebrate and inspire the passers-by and local residents of New Cross Gate.
PATCH UP - Quilt making activity for children and tour
Part of the Telegraph Hill Festival
Using a centuries old craft technique, Harts Lane Studios have transformed decorative references - pictures of landmarks, personal symbols, words, flagstone made by the children of New Cross - into a profound social, emotional message of pride, joy and hope, a celebration of a diverse and united New Cross Gate. Patch-Up! was part of Telegraph Hill Festival 2013 and took place at Harts Lane Studios in March and at the New Cross Learning library in April with children of the local Childeric Primary School. It then went on tour in SE14...

Featuring: Paul Clayton, Maria Christoforatou, Carla Cruz, Janet Currier, Eleanor Davies, Mikey Georgeson, Saskia van der Sluis and Paul Taylor.
Music: Jona Overground
“United” brought together artists who use units in their work. The unit could be a tablet, block, label, tile, bottle or even a bird box. As the artist unites the multiple units, the artwork takes on a collective presence that engages with notions of family, identity, community, mobility, the infinite and atomic.
The collective art exhibition curated by Paul Tecklenberg, showcased works by eight London based artists: Tisna Westerhof, Tommy Seaward, Melissa Alley, David Redfern, Susan Haire, Fiammetta Alley, Mikey Georgeson and Paul Tecklenberg.
The day will also featured music by local performer Nigel of Bermondsey who performed psycho-geographical songs and stories from Bermondsey, Wapping, Rotherhithe, Walworth and South London.
