IT GATHERED HERE
LOUISE FRANCES SMITH

17 February - 11 May 2024

The Cupboard, 34 Fort Hill, Margate, CT9 1HD

‘It gathered here’ is a solo exhibition by Ramsgate-based artist Louise Frances Smith and presents a series of site specific sculptures. Playing with scale, the organic, body-like forms appear to be engulfing the small space, growing, crawling and spreading around the walls - posing the question of what the repercussions of human intervention is on our fragile coastal ecosystems, hiding behind the door of The Cupboard.

TURNER'S FEMALE CONTEMPORARIES
MERCEDES WORKMAN

18 November 2023 - 10 February 2024

The Cupboard, 34 Fort Hill, Margate, CT9 1HD

‘Turner's Female Contemporaries’ presents a meticulously crafted and entirely tiled space, unveiling the faces of female artists who have long been overlooked by history, each of whom were creating their own work during J. M. W. Turner’s lifetime. Mercedes Workman's installation serves as a poignant reminder of the many talented women artists who have, for the most part, been denied the recognition they rightfully deserved. This exhibition shines a much-needed spotlight on their remarkable contributions to the art world and seeks to rectify the historical omission.

Main Space, 34 Fort Hill, Margate, CT9 1HD

Maud Whatley’s work explores the politics of looking at things, the unexpected eroticism of placing different ideas in the context of one another and the ways in which the repetitive insistent touches of drawing can be sexy and weird.

DEADLY BLOOM
JULIA ELLEN LANCASTER

7 - 28 October 2023

Main Space, 34 Fort Hill, Margate, CT9 1HD

Julia Ellen Lancaster's work delves deep into the relationship between humans and the landscape and encourages us to embrace the beauty of difference. 'Deadly Bloom' showcases Lancaster's innovative approach to ceramics, where she experiments with different clay bodies and complex glazing techniques, and employs her signature practice of digging clay from her local area in Thanet. A celebrated ceramic artist known for her distinctive exploration of primitive and otherworldly organisms, Lancaster repurposes previous ceramic experiments, adding layers of complexity to her creations. This intuitive and playful process is fundamentally linked to exploration and making.

Main Space, 34 Fort Hill, Margate, CT9 1HD

Liminal Gallery is delighted to present ‘Sanctum Futurum: Relics and Forbidden Desires' a solo exhibition by Henrietta Armstrong. This new body of work is an evocative exploration of religious iconography and the boundaries of sacred art.

 

A journey into a shrine-like space where old gods are left behind and new ones emerge. 'Sanctum Futurum' questions the historical authenticity and often gruesome nature of sacred objects. Using plaster, wax and a touch of satire, Armstrong rebuilds her own pseudo relics for a contemporary world.

'NOCTURNES'
ANDREW TORR

6 - 28 May 2023

Main Space, 34 Fort Hill, Margate, CT9 1HD

Liminal Gallery and The AOP Gallery are delighted to present Nocturnes a co-curated solo exhibition with Andrew Torr. It isn’t too far fetched to say that Torr has invented his own version of neo classical landscape painting with his Nocturnes. Each painting has a thin bright line that runs along the horizon and below the trees. The line contains a hive of city life, car lights, brightly lit houses and is placed within a setting that owes more to an old master than an urban location in London’s zone 2.

'TRY A LITTLE TENDERNESS'
INGRID BERTHON-MOINE, FLORA BRADWELL & DAMIEN FLOOD

4th - 23rd February 2023

34 Fort Hill, Margate, CT9 1HD

Tender moments, tender flesh, tender touch, tender thoughts, tender heart, tender mind; try a little tenderness. 

A tender moment is encapsulated in an act of thoughtfulness; a cup of tea at the end of the day, a gift of flowers, a display of love. Tenderness is to give up one's time, attention, precious moments devoted to another. Tenderness is also pain, a moment of fragility, of weakness. It evokes skin which expands, shrinks, multiplies, and shivers to the touch. Skin which is a dying organism, for surely that is what we all are. A tender morsel of meat, deliciously melts in the mouth. 

Exploring these themes in contrasting ways ‘Try a little Tenderness’ brings together the works of three artists whose practice is unified in the attempt to capture these fleeting moments.

'DANCING IN THE DARK'
ALEXIS SOUL-GRAY

7th - 29th January 2023

34 Fort Hill, Margate, CT9 1HD

Liminal Gallery is delighted to announce ‘Dancing in the Dark’ a solo exhibition by Alexis Soul-Gray. This new body of paintings by the Devon-based artist focuses on a children's party, devoid of parents, the children take on the burden of life amongst celebration, in all its beauty and sorrow. The figures Soul-Gray creates dissolve into dreamlike abstraction, overrun with vivid colour and this instability of surface blurs distinctions between figure, feeling, fantasy and reality.

DAMIEN CIFELLI
'TAROGRAMMA'

1st- 30th October 2022

34 Fort Hill, Margate, CT9 1HD

Liminal Gallery is delighted to announce the opening of a permanent gallery space in Margate. The debut exhibition will be ‘Tarogramma’ with London-based, Scottish artist Damien Cifelli. Cifelli’s work explores the fictional realm of Tarogramma; a civilisation which in parts is comfortingly familiar yet wildly bizarre in their peculiarities. The canvases feature tight, flat realism combined with a daringly bold palette while referencing historical paintings, sculptures and museum artefacts. Cifelli approaches his work as a traveller, or archaeologist, piecing together recounts, relics and memorabilia to present an overall sense of the mythical world which could be an afterlife, an alien civilisation, a parallel world disrupted by the flutter of a butterfly's wing, a dream, or completely fictitious.

'MATRESCENCE'
CATHERINE LETTE, SARAH MAPLE, JENNIFER NIEUWLAND & ALEXIS SOUL-GRAY

5th - 27th November 2022

34 Fort Hill, Margate, CT9 1HD

Liminal Gallery is delighted to announce ‘Matrescence’, an exhibition which brings together the work of four artists Mothers, curated by a Mother, with a portion of sales going to local non-profit organisation MAMA to MAMA.

The term ‘Matrescence’ is the physical, emotional, psychological, hormonal and social transition to becoming a mother.  

The artists Catherine Lette, Sarah Maple, Jennifer Nieuwland and Alexis Soul-Gray explore this concept in their works in varying ways. From the bold, brutal reality alongside a dose of good humour.

'OVERSIZED SWORDS, CHAINS AND GLOVES'
LINDSEY JEAN MCLEAN

3rd - 22nd December 2022

34 Fort Hill, Margate, CT9 1HD

Fleshy naked bodies juxtaposed against cool malleable textures, ask to what end will the pursuit of pleasure take; with the sting of passion or the emptiness of a glove? ‘Oversized Swords, Chains and Gloves’ features a new body of work and is a window into the recurring themes that provoke and inform Lindsey Jean McLean’s practice.
