Mental illness and its many faces are shown in an innovative portraiture exhibition by contemporary artist Andrea Tyrimos. A series of oil paintings, coupled with audio portraits of celebrities and non-celebrities alike, will be on show at London's 5th Base Gallery, this October.

As you enter the exhibition you will be confronted with intimate, illuminared oil paintings. Alongside each portrait is an accompanying audio piece, revealing the spoken words and innermost thoughts of the sitter. The visitor becomes fully immersed in a sensory exploration of the mind.

A graduate from Central St Martins, Andrea pushes the boundaries of portraiture, uniquely combining both visual and audio elements, in an attempt to give this invisible illness not only visibility but also presence.

Former world boxing champion Ricky Hatton, TV personality and presenter Gail Porter, former premiership footballer turned pro boxer Leon McKenzie, Tony Blair's former strategist Alastair Campbell, media personality Kerry Katona, famous birdwatcher and TV presenter Bill Oddie, and author and Guardian journalist Mark Rice-Oxley are some of the names involved.

From the mouthwatering vibrancy of home-made gelato, to the multicoloured swirls of fresh pasta; where politically charged Italian graffiti clashes with Michaelangelo's 16th Century chapel ceiling. Whether you're an art enthusiast or not, you cannot help but appreciate the art that saturates Rome...

Private View Thursday, 30 September 2010

'Cross My Art' Is the largest, most exciting Private exhibition of Contemporary Art for London 2010.

Showcasing recent Graduates from many top British Art Schools alongside experienced artists of renown, 'Cross My Art' offers an alternative to the frustrations of the Gallery system. This is an exciting option for serious artists to present their works to buyers and collectors on an even basis in a museum quality environment, allowing direct discussion and negotiation. This show is not to be missed.

The Middle of Nowhere: Objects and Actions in the Abyss is the latest in Departure Gallery’s acclaimed series of exhibitions in the vast warehouses of The International Trading Estate. Amidst a labyrinth of factories and haulage depots, over 40 artists conquer this cavernous space with ambitious sculpture, video and wall-based work, each offering a different perspective on the idea of ‘the middle of nowhere’, through exploration of themes such as disorientation, transience, camouflage, liminal space, spectrality and non-place.

Departure Gallery reclaims empty urban space to provide unique architectural contexts for projects and exhibitions showcasing work by exceptional emerging and established artists.


Press reviews of Departure Gallery’s previous exhibitions on the estate:

“A warehouse party with a difference…There is loads to explore. If you’re looking for something different (and free) to do this weekend, I would highly recommend a trip to Southall to see the show.”

Hannah Collingbourne,, 11/12/09.

“Edgy art warehouse shows – no need to go to Brooklyn or Beijing, even if the Southall Project may seem almost as far. But the huuuge space is well worth it. I went to the last show two months ago and what an amazing selection filled it, from the subliminal…to the magnificently mad.”

Herbert Wright, Le Cool magazine, 10/12/09.

Swan Song
A one-night exhibition in a building soon to be demolished
Curated by Rowena Chiu, hosted by Michael Pritchett

‘All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy, for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter into another.’

Anatole France


Swan Song is a one-night group exhibition that will take place in an evacuated 19th Century townhouse off Dean Street, the last remaining in its block of buildings destined for demolition to make way for the area’s new Crossrail station. Loaned to the project by the last of the former occupants of the house, the exhibition will encompass a variety of suddenly empty spaces, cleared of possessions with only hints of its former domestic past, as though abandoned in pre-apocalyptic haste.



The exhibition is a valediction to Soho after over a decade of inhabitation. Works in the show include film, painting, murals and works on paper. Many of the works have been created for the site and integrated within the framework of the building, conceived and installed 24 hours before the opening and lit using found lighting.



Artists include:
Carolina Ambida - Tereza Buskova - Romela Crnogorac - Keran Dee - Aidan Doherty - Katarina Forss - Mathilda Holmqvist
 Katie Honan - Yolande Kenny - Henry Krokatsis - Amy Moffat - Jamie Partridge – Nathaniel Rackowe - Alex Roberts - Harry Scoging Beer - Yukako Shibata -
Andrea Tyrimos


Date: Friday 15th January 2010
Time: 18.00 – 21.30 with afterparty on site
Location: St Anne’s House, Diadem Court, London W1D 3EF (Tottenham Court Road tube, off Great Chapel Street)

The exhibition will also be viewable by appointment on Saturday 16th January – please contact Rowena to book a viewing
