Coming in January - Pop Japan: An Exhibition by Sonoko Obuchi

Share

Sonoko Obuchi has been living in London for the last 16 years. During that time many things have happened. She studied, graduated, worked, got married, had children. She witnessed the 7/7 London bombings, the 2012 Olympics, the Brexit vote and, most significantly, the arrival of proper Tonkotsu Ramen noodle restaurants from her home town Hakata!

Given her Japanese background, her life established in London and the turmoil of recent times Sonoko finds herself in the grip of an identity crisis. You the viewer can join her on an emotional trip as she searches for an understanding of who she has become and what it means to live as a Japanese artist in this marvellous cosmopolitan city, London.

Pop means popular culture & Pop Art in general. But when Sonoko entitled her exhibition "Pop Japan", it felt like a bubble of Japanese-ness bursting and a new energy began pouring forth.

She wants to express this feeling through her speciality: Manga graphics, photography, 3D work and film.

Sonoko is very excited to show her latest collection in the Dugdale Centre, a cultural centre for the artistic community in Enfield and all London.

Small Commissioning Program for Recent Graduates

Share

Hotel Elephant is launching its first small commissioning program for recent graduates. This forms part of Hotel Elephants Creative Enterprise program for 2016/17, which has been funded through Southwark Councils Arts and Culture Grant scheme.

This program will commission 6 new pieces of artwork from emerging artists who have graduated in last 3 years. The artworks will be exhibited at Hotel Elephants new Spare Street gallery & mixed use public space in 2017.

The aim of this program is to enable these artist/s to further their current practice through the production of a new piece of work. We are keen to receive applications which can demonstrate that this commission would provide a valuable opportunity to expand their artistic investigation.

There is a maximum budget of 500 available to each successful application. This is to cover the cost of both the material costs and the time of all the artists involved in making the work.

Application guidelines & form can be downloaded from our website:http://hotelelephant.co.uk/theprogram/

Deadline: 5pm 16th December

Site visit: Monday 5th December 11am
