studio available now

Studio 5WS is an L shaped, small studio / large cupboard at the top of the stairwell on the top floor of the building. The previous tenant used this space as a small office for a while and has since being using it as storage. As a result it is in need of some attention, and the walls could do with being brushed back before applying a coat of anti-damp paint. There are two single strip lights in the room and two double sockets on the wall to the left of the door. The studio has no windows.

Quarterly rent of £82.25
The exiting Member is looking for a £237.50 Premium to re-assign the lease.

Joseph Hillier Incremental Objects


Saturday 9th November, 6pm – 8pm

@ 36 Lime Street Gallery
Saturday 9th – Sunday 17th November

Gallery opening times:

Saturday 9th November, 6pm – 8pm


Joseph Hillier is best known for his monumentally scaled sculpture for public sites in the UK and Ireland. This exhibition opens other parts of his practice to view. These new bodies of work are made on a more intimate scale and include tentative drawings and digitally rendered objects.

The exhibition includes two digitally made series of sculpture. The first of these groups captures the human body in motion sequentially through time and condenses these frames of movement into singular objects. The capture of human movement through the use of computer animation and CNC machining re-examine modernist experiments by futurists in contemporary, digital terms. The ability to capture and describe human movement through these digital means represents human actions as biomorphic abstracted, tangible and miniaturised objects.

The second of these groups are 3 small figure studies laser cut in steel, these figures appear to sleep or have been knocked unconscious, they are rendered like geological strata in many curving layers. The timelessness and specifics of their making are at odds. Knockout 2 is made from motion capture-data of a boxer knocked unconscious. The piece spawned the further 2 sleeping figures.

Further drawings in the exhibition are made over found fashion photographs of models. Their juxtaposition with freehand drawing creates an ambiguous relationship, and a potent reviewing of the human form in a contemporary context.

“By rendering the human form in new processes and through geometric operations, I aim to re-view ourselves, in many terms: from our atomic makeup to our societal structures. If in doing this I create an image of humanity which belongs to it’s place, the here and now, and yet takes part in a timeless act, to recreate our image in sculptural form, then I may have made something pertinent and beautiful, to hang a question on.”
