A new exhibition in Shepherds Bush called ‘Mapping the Imagination’ is celebrating life’s quirky and often overlooked moments.
Artist Alison Heath is staging the show at a pop-up gallery at 83 Askew Road until Saturday 17 March.
She explains: “It explores the line between reality and the imaginary, combining everyday urban imagery and mapping to highlight the incidental moments we overlook.”
Visitors become observers of London life, with the chance to escape humdrum reality and let their imaginations soar. The show is the last hurrah for the building, formerly occupied by A&B Minicabs near the corner with Hadyn Park Road, before it is redeveloped.
Alison herself will be on hand on Friday 16 March from 6-8.30pm to chat about her work.
Last weekend the show featured a workshop for children, to encourage the next generation of artists to make Mother’s Day cards.
Alison studied at the Royal College of Art (her dissertation was on City of the Imagination), City Lit and the University of Westminster, and has exhibited at the Royal Academy. In 2016, she staged an exhibition in the café area of the Laveli bakery in Askew Road.
The show at 83 Askew Road is open 11am-6pm through the week.
Alison is also collaborating with Shepherds Bush residents on an exploration of the journeys they make in W12. She is inviting them to photograph a place, person and object, and explain their significance in a project linked to the show and entitled Tell Us About W12.
