"The State Of It"
"The State Of It' 10TH - 16TH AUGUST 2023
Lebenson Gallery presents 'The State Of It' a group show of international artists.
'The necessity to turn to cynicism, humour and nostalgia as armour to endure in a world that feels inherently hopeless and deranged. 'The State of It' explores the convoluted reality of what it means to exist in the prevailing turbulent environment that is life in the UK. Hysteria, disillusionment and a longing for the past being a motif for survival.An assembly of artists, working in digital and traditional media. A dizzying profusion of turbulence, political indifference and an absence of opportunity; sentimentality and delirium gathers.

‘Those art school years are so vivid, it still seems like yesterday and I can still taste the exact air of the moments’

'Monster' by Joe Hesket. Opening Thursday 25th London
Lebenson Gallery is proud to present ‘MONSTER’ a solo show by Joe Hesketh - featuring previously unseen works at Gallery 46.
She explores a vivid depiction of the lawless territory that occupies the – often convoluted – reality of
what it means to be human, capturing an apocalyptic cynicism that seems to be inextricably bound to
life as a woman in the 21st century.
With themes of transgression and the grotesque pervading her work, ‘Monster’ is a search for meaning in
a world full of ‘ism’s’. Hesketh’s work probes and pivots between sex, life and death and humour, tragedy
and beauty that endures amidst the chaos of our world, saturated with a myriad of manmade horrors
‘Capturing an apocalyptic cynicism that seems to be inextricably bound to life as a woman in the 21st century’

31 Rue de Penthievre 75008 Paris
This photographic body of work began in late 1997 and continued for the next 10 years.
It documents the people out in clubs and the ebb and flow of the social situation that unfolds within them.
Night culture offers a physical and mental space for the suspension of the burden of everyday life through
the conspicuous consumption of drink, narcotics, relationships and time.
The pictures in this series depict moments of narcotic tenderness and navigates the choreography of
intoxication, capturing intimate and fleeting moments of late night culture...

deeep™ X coming back to London 2nd Edition- 10-13 oct 2022
deeep™ the NFT Art Fair will take place in Whitechapel London, an area that has been the conduit for huge cultural and artistic movements over the past twenty-five years. It will take place in this spectacular venue, unique in light and space, which provides the prime location and a worthy backdrop to the experiential and pioneering works showcased. In September, the world’s artistic communities come to London, and the deeep™ NFT Art Fair is timed to coincide with that influx - giving this medium its best chance to capture the imagination of the industry.
The new deeep™ X edition will present the idea of sexuality through the prism of Ai. Sexuality has been dominant throughout the history of art with nudes, eroticism from ancient Greece, to pop art and postmodernism. deeep X will revisit this theme through new algorithms and mediums including NFTs. How do Ai artists use coding and algorithms to bring a new dimension to the subject of sexuality? This will be the focus of deeep X, which will take place in London during Frieze Art Fair.

Artist sculptor from Berlin, Franz Schmidt essentialise, in its minimalist form, day to day objects producing an uber presence as much as a poetic effect.
By changing the scale of the objects, the meticulous production of the artist create a new radical dimension of reality. Objects becomes almost part of new mythology sometimes posing as antics.
THE HIDDEN PICTURE
From the 10th of June to the end of June @ Lebenson Gallery London

Anthony Bourached and George Cann, both PhD candidates, are heading the “NeoMasters” project through a company called Oxia Palus. They have ambitious plans to rediscover further hidden paintings on canvases that were reused by artists, who were perhaps too impoverished to buy supplies or dissatisfied with initial compositions.

Bourached is a specialist in high-dimensional neuroscience, trying to model human behaviour through AI.
