DESCRIPTION

A clue, 8 down, Peeking In.

You should see this exhibition. This is something unexpected. These are the blossoms of a rhizome.  The sound of flint striking beside a heap of flammable illusions.

Carried along in the tear-swollen torrent of the mighty Thames, eight artists wash up at Milroy Walk, SE1, to begin building civilisation in an abandoned restaurant. There is sculpture, painting, photography, and film. Fragments of glorious imagination and exquisite touch borne up on the rising floodwater of the globalised quotidian. Bring your broken certainties and flickering hopes and see beauty and meaning conjured from rubble, glimpses of a new, better life. We start from scratch today.

Playpaint sent out jigsaw pieces on a silver salver, invitations for a new reality delivered to seven of their favourite artists. Masterless samurai, whose work is their code and whose actions are their own reward. 

Born in the basements of Babylon, when the gravestone is heaved aside you see its mother was a jackal. Monstrous? Insane? You should look around you. You should see this exhibition. There will be more.
