The phrase ‘going south’ has at times been colloquially figured in the North, as going down under, down on, cashing out, towards a worse position…. off the map. This Going South exhibition challenges such stereotypes and inaugurates a project which references landscapes from New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Brazil, Argentina and Chile. This exhibition consists of a set of paintings whose metaphors and methods speak to a radiant and subversive nether world.
This Going South exhibition in Somerset House East Wing will be the concluding event of Lola Frost’s Leverhulme Artist’s Residency in the Department of War Studies, King’s College London. Throughout this residency Lola Frost has engaged with students and scholars in the Department of War Studies on the productive possibilities of aesthetic risk, as a riposte to the ubiquity of risk management values in contemporary life and war.
