FILM SCREENING: Sophie Cundale’s After Picasso, God

Saturday 01 July at Roman Road | Associate Programme of Art Night 2017

Read More

Roman Road is pleased to be participating in the first associate programme of Art Night with a special screening of Sophie Cundale’s After Picasso, God on Saturday 1st July 2017.

 

After Picasso, God (2016) was a co-commission between Serpentine Galleries and South London Gallery. The film sees a woman (played by Cundale) visit a hypnotist to address an unwanted addiction. As part of her cure, objects, people and images are transformed through hypnosis; pain is bought to the surface and removed through analgesia. The title refers to the artist Dora Maar, Picasso’s lover and muse, who after the break-up of their affair, declared: “After Picasso, Only God.”

 

The screening has been organised as part of Meshes of the Afternoon, a group exhibition curated by Attilia Fattori Franchini, on display at Roman Road until 20 August 2017.

ARTIST INTERVIEW: Natalia LL in i-D

Read More

“Art is in the process of becoming in every instant of reality: to the individual, every fact, every second is fleeting and unique. That is why I record common and trivial events like eating, sleeping, copulation, resting, speaking… Moreover each activity of a person as a component of their reality evokes an equal mental reaction in the person who watches the notation.” – Natalia LL

A new article by Tish Weinstock for i-D looks at Natalia LL’s prolific career and includes an interview with the artist.

FEATURED: Roman Road in Wallpaper*

Read More

Roman Road’s transformation has been featured in a Wallpaper* article by Ellie Stathaki. Designed by Threefold Architects, the space harmoniously connects art and residential, being an extension of the gallery as well as the director of Roman Road, Marisa Bellani’s home.

 

The renovation was completed in late 2015 and the exhibition TEMPO AL TEMPO. ART FROM ANNO DOMINI TO RONI HORN was the first to utilise the gallery’s extended space. As well as the internal rooms, the building also opens onto a courtyard, providing a new area for sculpture displays.
