= The Crawford Arts Review: April 2017

Monday, 24 April 2017

Until Saturday 13 May

Eastcastle Street W1, just north of Oxford Street, is now an established fine art destination. It already has a Kaffeine and I should mention too that across Oxford Street to the south you'll find the Photographers' Gallery.

PiArtworks resides at No. 55 Eastcastle Street. The World Made New exhibition is the fourth of five dedicated to a curatorial season that runs until July. The five artists too are from outside the gallery's roster, Sovay Berriman, Ilana Halperin, Iz Öztat, Lindsay Seers and Michelle Williams Gamaker. The show is curated by Oliver Sumner. As in much fine art, less is often more in curation and Sumner doesn't disappoint. 

Here are three works shot at random: 1., 2. Sovay Berriman's Resting Post (installation view) and Falling Wizard, and 3. Iz Öztat's Posthumous Production Series (installation view to street). All five artists deftly explore personal mythologies of birth, transfiguration and constructed identity.
