Also last chance to see Closing Day of Sarah Sparkes exhibition Ghost Parlour.
The Ghost Tide was curated by Monika Bobinska and Sarah Sparkes. The exhibition featured over 30 international artists and took place at Thames-side Studios Gallery in the autumn of 2018. The Ghost Tide was was supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
The Ghost Tide took as its starting point the perspective that ghosts exist as an idea, or as part of a belief system, across cultures, across national borders and throughout recorded history. Most languages contain words to describe the ghost, spirit or immaterial part of a deceased person. Often, these words – like the type of ghost they describe – have traversed borders and been assimilated across cultures.
The exhibition, situated next to the Thames Barrier in South-East London, evoked ghosts as a migratory tide, washed up along the shore of the Thames their historical baggage in tow. It also explored the presence of artists in this part of London, as a migratory tide of creative flotsam and jetsam which ebbs and flows as the city gentrifies and develops.
Artists featured: Andrea G Artz, Chris Boyd, Davies, Monaghan & Klein, Gen Doy, Sarah Doyle, Graham Dunning, Diane Eagles, Andrew Ekins, Charlie Fox, Katie Goodwin, Kio Griffith, Miyuki Kasahara, Calum F Kerr, Rob La Frenais, David Leapman, Liane Lang, Toby MacLennan, Laura Marker, Joanna McCormick, Josie McCoy, Jane Millar, Miroslav Pomichal, Brothers Quay, Anne Robinson, Edwin Rostron, Matt Rowe, Sarah Sparkes, Charlotte Squire, Sara Trillo, Yun Ting Tsai, Kate Walters, Patrick White, Heidi Wigmore, Neale Willis, Mary Yacoob, Neda Zarfsaz.

With winter coming to an end, we rely on nine artists to help us turn on the light. We boldly look into its source, whether natural or artificial. Light means energy, ideas, and risks. It is inseparable from shadow. While it can dazzle, it can also be played with.
