Sharing its title with the current exhibition at Sid Motion Gallery, ‘Play on Repeat’ is a short series of podcasts that interview some of London’s most exciting emerging artists working today; Louis Caulfield, Morgan Wills and Alice Irwin.
The podcasts are led by Martin Mayorga and Vanessa Murrell, co-founders of dateagleart, an online platform giving visibility to emerging artists – who invite Gallery Director and curator Sid Motion to discuss with each of these artists the themes of their works in the exhibition.
In this week’s episode, Sid Motion speaks to artist Morgan Wills. Since Sid exhibited Morgan in his first ever solo show in 2016, Morgan has evolved his practice to include sculptural works, and has developed the use of motifs in his work. This conversation explores how the work has changed since having the experience of his first show, and how the new sculptures sits within the larger context of his drawings and painting. The conversation addresses how the repetition of a motif has become the starting point of many of the artist’s compositions, and the autobiographical qualities of the work.
This conversation is the second of 3 in this series. The first conversation with Louis Caulfield is already available to listen to, and an interview with Alice Irwin will be release next Friday 9th February.
The exhibition, ‘Play on Repeat’ is on view at Sid Motion Gallery until 17th February 2018.
