Draw a Line on the Equator
'Just Dreams' by Oscar Murillo, 2013
An artist's studio is his/her private domain. The place where they can experiment with creative ideas and make mistakes with criticism, before going live to the public. Most people are not lucky enough to see this sacred space, but Oscar Murillo is offering the next best thing. In his first major solo exhibition in the UK, the Columbian artist has reconstructed his studio at the South London Gallery. The epitome of site-specific art, Murillo's exhibit not only displays his work, but also the entire contents of his studio. Everything was moved to the gallery space - and I do mean everything. From copper sheet tables to the floorboards (which are made from pulped biro drawings). It is not only the art on display, but the room itself.
Murillo's work includes sculptures, drawings, stitched canvases, and film. As part of a charity event, he is also holding a lottery, in which you can win three silkscreen printed metallic oil paintings. The exhibit is open until the 1st December and free to visit, but you can also book an artist talk starting from £3, which will be on the 20th November at 7pm.
