Now extended: The Rebellious Script, a show I put together with Geoff Titley for ArtLicks Weekend 2017. Runs until 7 October at A/Side B/Side Gallery in Hackney.
The show’s title, The Rebellious Script, is a term borrowed from Yuval Noah Harari’s 2011 book Sapiens describing the ‘partial script’ of maths and accountancy. Harari explains that while this incomplete script is unable to describe the full gamut of human interaction, it has nevertheless come to dominate our worldview.
Here’s an interview with me about my macrame map which was installed in South London for the Deptford X Fringe.

I’m delighted to invite you to two exhibitions in London this Autumn:
The Cartographer Tries to Map her Way to Deptford | A site specific installation woven over a cafe courtyard on Deptford High Street
The Rebellious Script | A two-person show featuring photographic installation (Geoff Titley) and machine-cut sculpture (Amanda Lwin)
I’m pleased to be showing one of my Stoke Newington glass houses less than a mile from their inspiration.

Private view 12th October.

I’m spending June in Venice on a Fellowship with the British Council. I spend half the time looking after the British Pavilion as part of the Biennale and the other half doing my own research.
The artist showing this year at the British Pavilion is Phyllida Barlow. When I started, I wasn’t especially fond of her works so it’s been an interesting experience spending so much time in their company. More and more, I feel like they want to get up and start jumping and dancing around the space. So I made these gifs.
Her sculptural language works as a surprisingly potent metaphor for these uncertain, unreal times. See more gifs:

I enjoyed my weekend showing at Helena’s and Neil’s terraced house in the model town of Saltaire, Yorkshire as part of the Open Houses Arts Trail. Neil’s family was in the Merchant Navy and many of these trinkets are geniunely old. I thought they complemented the set-up quite nicely.
If you’re in Athens next week I’ve got a couple of pieces at Platforms Projects Art Fair showing with Lubomirov Angus-Hughes.

I’ve started a series of perforated metal sculptures called The Skyscraper Index.
These wall-hung panels are based on buildings that were once the tallest of their time. The series is based on a flippant idea formulated by economist Andrew Lawrence: “An era’s tallest building rises on the eve of economic downturn”. Continue reading “? THE SKYSCRAPER INDEX ?”
