Pop-up Exhibition — Amrita Saraogi

Amrita Saraogi_The Yellow London Room Where I Learnt to be Happy Alone_Linocut (1)

Who : Amrita Saraogi

When : Friday 10th June 2016 7pm – 9:30pm

Where : East London Printmakers (RSVP)

Amrita, a printmaker from Calcutta, India, and our current resident Project Keyholder, is going to present  her work on reflective self-portraits, and her experiments with ‘cracking’ effects for etchings which she has been working on while at ELP. She has explored the relationship between the ‘self’ and space, and how space can trigger self-reflection and new ways of looking at oneself.

Amrita has trained closely under a master printmaker in Calcutta for 2 years. Her recent work largely deals with memories, and associations with private spaces such as bedrooms.

The exhibition will include a display of linocuts and etchings, amongst other media.

Pop-Up Exhibition: ‘The House of Refuge’: Constructing Fictional Architecture in Print

Imogen Humphris Pop Up Exhibition

Who : Imogen Humphris

When : Friday 20th May 2016 7pm – 9:30pm

Where : East London Printmakers

This year Imogen Humphris has been working on the project key holder residency at East London Printmakers; working with a variety of etching techniques, she has explored the translation from her ‘conglomerate drawing’ method to ‘conglomerate printing’, producing new pieces constructed from multiple plate printing and paper cut out. As part of the ELP pop-up exhibition she will present some highlights in the journey from research to the creation of ‘The House of Refuge’.

Imogen Humphris is an illustrator and printmaker bringing together themes of conflict and poverty in the context of architecture and the built environment. From travel, formal research, and informal conversations she creates fictional buildings that represent real life experiences of communities in the throws of change. Her current project ‘The House of Refuge’ brings together spaces of hostility and sanctuary throughout the migration paths across Europe in a discursive exchange.
