The resulting imagery forms an evocative, moving, juxtaposition, confronting the viewer with a world that is at once familiar and yet strangely disturbing. Artists: Annouchka Bayley, Anna Courcha, Lisa Cradduck, Giada Ghiringhelli, Amanda Greenidge, Anna Krimerman, Laurie Lipton and Tuva Novotny

Annouchka Bayley, Performance Annouchka Bayley is a performer, multi-instrumentalist, singer and poet. She trained in the Roy Hart method in Paris and has apprenticed "long song and overtones" among the wild women of Mongolia. She is the voice and face of the band Radio Mori, and her work for Gone promises to be overwhelmingly unusual. Anna Courcha, Paintings Sometimes painted on detritus or found objects these paintings bear words or letters borrowed from de-contextualized conversations, ordinary familiar phrases reprocessed through the act of painting into a secret internal language, saturated with memory and personal meaning. In Gone Courcha will exhibit a series of paintings that reveal an astounding amount of honesty and vulnerability, like delicate coded notes to a very personal, intimate narrative. Lisa Cradduck, Floral tributes Lisa Cradduck is a florist, "Proletarian Art Threat", and reverend of the Universal Life Church. Cradduck's work uses and plays with the associations and floral aesthetics that surround rituals in our culture: Funerals, weddings, romance, etc. These immediate readings are averted in the detail of the work which leads us into other surprising directions creating new inter-textual interpretations of death and celebration. Giada Ghiringhelli, Video Giada Ghiringhelli is a multimedia artist and filmmaker; her works principally concern the body - usually the artist's own -- both in space and in the void: in her own words, "eternal obsession and narcissistic dilemma, companion and co-operator." Coolly sensual, spatially cerebral, her films and photographs create the sense of being suspended in the present. Amanda Greenidge, Illustration Amanda Greenidge is an illustrator and artist living and working in London. She is a recent graduate of the University of Westminster and has had works featured in the Free Range exhibition at the Old Truman Brewery. She makes tough, hard-hitting, intensely personal images, often using her [found] materials as inspiration - in the work Domestic Violence, for example, we see an arguing couple and a small frightened child painted on a domestic door, the centre of which looks as if it was smashed by someone in a genuine fit of rage. Greenidge also combines collage, digital, freehand drawing and photography to construct the complexity of urban lifestyles, broken families, and womanhood. Anna Krimerman, Video Anna Krimerman is a Berlin based photographer and video artist. About her video "My Daddy he treats me so well" she says: "The moment when trust stops to be something one can have blindly…. Trust is a rare thing, more valuable than gold that can be found in rare moments. The search for it is what leads people in relationships, the way they move in the world, and perceive it. It is a choice to trust, to mistrust, to misuse trust. Usually, what we find when we look for trust are traps. We want to trust blindly, but we know it is impossible. It always contains fear.It is physical.It begs the possibility of revenge. But it still exists." Laurie Lipton, Drawings Laurie Lipton is a "self-taught artist" who was born in New York and has been based in London since 1986. Her intensely intricate, hyper-realistic drawings reveal a world as familiar and foreign to us as our own bodies, they materialise all the loss, disillusionment, hope and fallibility of the human experience with tender sensitivity and dark humour. "We frantically... throw vitamins, creams and money at death. Death only happens to other people. Only losers die", say's Lipton. Her work for Gone reveals the dark truth - and the bright side - of death, life and everything in between. Tuva Novotny, Photographs Tuva Novotny, a screen actress since the age of sixteen, has been travelling "all of her grown life", obsessively taking evocative photographs both on location in her native Sweden and on her travels throughout the world. These photographs seem to capture a sense of loneliness but they also seek warmth and intimacy, they appear as an archive of grounding actions that catalogue familiarity in an unfamiliar world. They are an affirmation that "home is where the heart is". "Things go, people go, all the time... I've been gone all the time" EXHIBITION SHOTS
