From 6 February till 13 May 2020
Justine Mahoney’s second solo exhibition with Southern Guild delves into the tangled web of transformation from adolescence to adulthood. Many of the works in Mage are transgressive, tracing the dialectical forces that the artist sees in all of us – power and vulnerability, desire and self-protection, broken-ness and healing. She presents an alternative mythology for our times, given form through nine bronze figures representing antiheroes, archetypes and hybridised characters.

Leach Pottery | Selected Works
Currently taking place till 18 February 2020
This collection of 30 hand-built vessels, bowls and platters was made over a period of seven weeks while Andile Dyalvane was artist-in-residence at Leach Pottery in St. Ives, Cornwall, widely considered the birthplace of British studio pottery. Andile’s prolific output at Leach – founded in 1920 by master ceramicist Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada – is the result of a profound energetic flow grounded in the artist’s Xhosa heritage and embracing the world at large. The collection offers a fascinating window onto a collaboration between his African-inspired approach and the traditions of British studio pottery.
