Opening next month is Stolenspace Gallery’s new group show, VII, based around everything to do with that fortuitous little number that sites between six and eight.
It’s an especially important time for the gallery to try and garner luck. Now in, naturally, its seventh year, Stolenspace has just made the move to larger premises, albeit ones just a stone’s throw from its former home in the Old Truman Brewery, just off east London’s Brick Lane.
As the gallery exhaustively points out, seven is lucky for many reasons. At least eight of them, including the Seven Wonders of the World, the seven colours of the rainbow and the seven notes in the musical scale.
Artists involved in the exhibition include Dave Kinsey, EINE, Kid Acne, Pete Fowler, Word to Mother and many more.
Works range from the obviously seven-inspired, such as Aaron Rose’s talismanic numerical-led picture:
To the psychedelic, apocalyptic 7th Dimension, by Andrew Mcattee, which would be as at home in a video arcade as a gallery:
Cyrcle, however, takes a less colourful, luck-driven approach – instead creating this macabre image, bearing the cheery line – ‘there is no more death than dying.’
VII runs from 12 – 28 July at Stolenspace Gallery, 17 Osborn Street, London E1
