The Doldrums is the first gallery solo exhibition by Andy Wicks, the culmination of an intense residency within the gallery space over the summer.
For this show Wicks has produced a new body of site responsive work that investigates Deptford and its historic links to the river. Moving away from a studio-based practice, his time in residence offered a unique opportunity to unite a site of interest with a place of making and display.
Wicks describes himself as an “urban walker”; learning about a place by walking, repetition and absorbing the sites, smells and characters that inhabit it. He has taken on the role of the collector; a collector of knowledge, detritus, stories and data. Conceived through a period of heavy research and extensive readings, The Doldrums explores the remnants of the industrial past and its effect on the area today through sculpture, photography and performative expedition.
