‘Elsewhere’ has been especially curated for Peckham 24 by four artist from the Uncertain States project. Drawing on landscape, portraiture and still life,the work looks awry at the theme of refuge. The venue is called ‘safe house’. A term used to describe a refuge from danger, a secret sanctuary, somewhere transient that can offer protection. It implies that home is elsewhere. We didn’t imagine the past lives who had called it home, we marveled with delight at this inhospitable and beautiful space, with its coloured surfaces and remnants of paint and tiles. Home is elsewhere not in the bricks and mortar, for the artists in UCS home is imbued into nature, objects and ideas. Their work mirrors the inhospitable beauty of the space they inhabit.
