You know its coming but then there it actually is, your early thirties has arrived. It just kind of creeps up on you and then before you know it, has you anxiously by the throat. Thankfully, through the asphyxiation you can start to see things a little clearer; you can meditate your way through the issues.
Love reveals that it can be a getaway drug potentially leading you onto harder stuff; you take particular note of your diet and notice your guts are not a frictionless log flume but a much more complicated kind of fun; and those hoops you jump through to get to adulthood, the portals of your life, are in fact mesmerising forces.
Gradually you find you are sliding out of the pressures that want you to assume certain attitudes toward success and status, to become standard hetero gender roles. From this anxious climate you dose up on the power of failure; lubing up on its goofy freedoms and going with the flow, whether it’s the flow of sexual urges, digestion or meditative space.

Project LALO is an international exchange between dynamic emerging contemporary art spaces in London and Los Angeles. ARTRA Curatorial has partnered with Campbell Works, in London, to bring this 10 venue event to both cities – March in London and April in Los Angeles.
Artists make art, and galleries exhibit art, but what of the Artist-run-space? Spanning two cities and a large body of water, Project LALO explores the worlds of 10 artist run spaces in London and Los Angeles.
By pairing galleries and creating the opportunity to exchange both their artists and their spaces, Project LALO will present five exhibitions in London (March 20104) and five exhibitions in Los Angeles (April 2014) showcasing a deep cross section of current practice from the two cities.
Each space will present a curated exhibition comprising both visiting artists and their ‘local’ or represented artists, with an emphasis to include work by those who run the spaces.
5th March 6-9pm private view
On until 23rd March
57A Redchurch St, London E2 7DG
Wednesday to Sunday
12 noon to 6 pm – or by appointment
(check on Bank holiday weekends).
Part of Project LALO
“Artists make art, and galleries exhibit art, but what of the Artist-run-space? Spanning two cities and a large body of water, Project LALO explores the inner worlds of 13 artist run spaces in London and Los Angeles.
Project LALO will present six exhibitions in London (March 2014) and six exhibitions in Los Angeles (April 2014) showcasing a deep cross section of current practice from their reciprocal spaces.
Each space will present a curated exhibition comprising both visiting artists and their ‘local’ or represented artists, with an emphasis to include work by those who run the spaces.”
studio1.1′s partners in L.A. Monte Vista, have invited artists who’ve worked with them and/or whom they’ve been inspired by to create and send a greeting (or show of solidarity) to Studio 1.1 and its artists in the form of postcards, which should arrive stamped from Los Angeles.
studio1.1 will be sending Roxy Topia and Paddy Gould to L.A. – Roxy and Paddy will also simultaneously be showing work here in London – two parallel dialogues between artists, time and space…
We welcome from L.A.
