Curated by experimental arts space, Harts Lane Studios, and produced by Greenspace on behalf of Anthology; Deptford Stories will be an eclectic array of mixed-media installations, sculpture, prints, light displays, textiles and tiling. From James Capper and Katie Surridge’s imposing industrial and structural pieces to Cedric Christie’s iconic light-boxes and Margot Sanders’ site-specific painting portraying the frail beauty of human bonds, the artwork is varied and engaging.
