Ella Golt

Saturday, 25th June 2011
2-5pm

Ella Golt, I Command the Space, 2009

Ella Golt, I Command the Space, 2009


Ella Golt’s work playfully subverts materials and references, on a psychological quest for sense and order, through sculpture, drawing and video. Informed by theatrical performance, utilitarian apparatus and decorative finery, she makes work that sits comfortably on the stage and stands in the gallery. Experimentations between the life of a still object and one with a performative purpose, and the physical role of the body in performance, are themes explored throughout Ella Golt’s sculptural practice.

Born in London where she currently lives and works, Ella graduated from The University of East London, BA Fine Art in 2006 and from the Slade School of Art, MFA Sculpture, in 2009. Ella is a longstanding member of Albert & Friends Instant Circus.

Ella Golt will be in residence at 25 Stratford Grove from Monday 20th – Saturday 25th June.
We hope you will be able to join us for her performance on the Saturday.

A timetable of the event will be available on Friday 24th June. Stay tuned!

Colour this Book by Thomas Whittle
Commissioned by 25sg

Now available online from http://www.gofundme.com/support25sg

Only £8! All proceeds go to support the programme of artists residencies, workshops, discussions and live events at 25sg.

You are invited to 25sg to view an exhibition produced in collaboration with pupils from Hotspur Primary School and artist Thomas Whittle. The exhibition marks the launch of a special limited edition, Colour this Book, the first children’s publication by Thomas Whittle and produced with the pupils from the school.

Thomas Whittle led a series of exciting drawing and colouring workshops with a hundred and thirty-one children at Hotspur Primary School to produce imaginative illustrations for a unique book inspired by birds. This new endeavour began with a visit to the school from Wych Elm Falconry where the children met Fain the Raven, Torr the Harris Hawk and Duma the Eagle Owl and created drawings of the birds. In subsequent workshops, Whittle and the children have transformed their artwork into colourful imagery in Colour this Book to be presented in the exhibition at 25sg on Monday 27 June – Wednesday 29 June 2011. While Whittle’s work is known for its naïve and child like, investigative approach, in Colour this Book, he combines his fascination with children’s drawings and his passion for colour.

This is a must-have publication for art lovers, adults and children alike. Colour this Book will be on sale for a special price at the exhibition and book launch at 25sg on Monday 27 June, 4-8pm. It will also be available online at the normal price of £8 from the 25sg GoFundMe site http://www.gofundme.com/support25sg

We look forward to seeing you at 25sg!

“The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home is run out of a council property bedroom in Everton, Liverpool. twoaddthree are Gary Anderson, Lena Simic add Neal, Gabriel and Sid. We are artists. We are activists. We are a family.

Mummy and kids are in the frame and Daddy’s behind the camera.
We are a nice nuclear family.
We are a hetero-normative unit.
Tesco loves us, Disney adores us and McDonalds can’t get enough of us.
We are complicit in consumer capitalism (check out the footy gear!)
We, the family, are the solid bedrock of society, at least that is what we are told.
Instead we will dissent! We will have fun and take the piss.”

For more information about the artists please visit: www.twoaddthree.org

Lena Simic and Neal Anderson will be in residence at 25 Stratford Grove from 2nd – 5th June.
We hope you will be able to join us for their performance on Sunday 5th June.

A timetable will be available soon.
