Threshold celebrates the work of a selection of female artists represented by Simon Lee Gallery and coincides with the launch of Jennifer Higgie’s new book The Other Side. Featuring work by Angela Bulloch, Rachel Howard, Donna Huddleston, Josephine Meckseper, France-Lise McGurn, Paulina Olowska, Mai-Thu Perret and Clare Woods, this presentation considers many of the themes explored by Higgie in The Other Side, traversing the solace of ritual and the continued impact of spiritualism in contemporary art and feminism whilst offering alternative perspectives of the world. These themes are compounded in the work of Donna Huddleston in particular, who’s drawing Brighter, 2021 adorns the cover of Higgie’s book.

France-Lise McGurn: Aloud, The exposé

Simon Lee Gallery is pleased to present France-Lise McGurn's installation Aloud, The exposé, on view from 20 December 2022 - 14 January 2023.

Composed of a wooden frame and painted Perspex panels, McGurn’s characteristically fluid figures are all the more dynamic when presented across transparent screens, appearing to reach, lean and leap through the air. The outline of faces, torsos and limbs traverse painterly swathes of colour to form a narrativedefying ensemble of figures, crested by glowing neons.
