Radical Residency III
Unit 1 Gallery is opening its doors again for the third installment of the Radical Residency® programme following 2 successful iterations in 2018. This dynamic and innovative opportunity provides 10 artists from across the world with a communal studio space for 4 weeks, culminating in a group exhibition featuring works created on the premises. 10 places have been awarded to a multi-disciplined group of artists from 5 different countries: Tobias Becker (Germany), Sam Carvosso (UK), Sooyoung Chung (South Korea), Juliette Dominati (France), Géraldine Honauer (Switzerland), Hun Kyu Kim (South Korea), Jean-Baptiste Lagadec (France), Henry Tyrrell (UK), Lucille Uhlrich (France) and Poppy Whatmore (UK). The Solo Studio Residency, with artist Ubada Muti, will be running in tandem upstairs.
With issues around the ever mounting costs of studio space in London coming increasingly to the fore, this initiative not only alleviates commercial constraints but offers the additional enrichment of dialogue and exchange. The normally hushed gallery space is converted into a thriving hub of potential provocation and conversation in which the individual artists can respond and grow as they develop their own practice.
