Orleans House Gallery : Oui Neun Sprunt and Sarah Hacking-Brian: Lose Your Mind

"I am intrigued by a lady, paralysed from the neck down, on TV news. She feeds herself chocolate using a robotic arm controlled by her thoughts. I decide to explore thoughts, to create a space where thoughts exist."

About the exhibition

Lose Your Mind is an exploratory journey through the mind, culminating in an installation and collaborative video with singer-songwriter Sarah Hacking-Brian, highlighting the everyday struggles of mental illness. The hope is that this artwork will help break the stigma surrounding these illnesses that affect so many with an overriding message of 'You are NOT alone' The work incorporates sumi-e (Japanese ink painting), copper and aluminium leaf, plaster, light, sound design and video, combining to create a rich and highly textural approach.

This project has teamed up with the charity Mind, which will benefit from the proceeds of artwork sales during this run.

Riverside Gallery at the Old Town Hall : Sumiko Okubo: A Poem of the Harvest

Japanese artist Sumiko Okubo is inspired by the natural world, combined with a deep sense of the spiritual. She works not only in woodblock and etching, but also pastel or bronze sculpture. Okubo's art evokes a sense of timeless peace and tranquility. Initially trained in Tokyo followed by studies in London, her traditional Japanese style is imbued with the western influence she absorbed during her time in England. She regularly exhibits her prints and drawings, collectively titled 'Poems of Nature'.

More Information

How to get there

  • By train: The nearest train station is Hampton Wick - 7 minutes walk away. It connects easily with Waterloo, Vauxhall, Clapham Junction, Wimbledon and Richmond. Turn right out the station and then follow directions below as if driving from Kingston. Langdon Park is off Kingston Road, opposite Wick Road. We are in the big building on the right once you have turned into Langdon Park.
  • By bus: The 281 stops outside the building, travelling from Tolworth and Kingston in one direction, and Teddington and Twickenham in the other. The 285, which links Kingston and Heathrow airport, also stops outside.
  • By car: If you're driving from Kingston, drive past Hampton Wick station on the right and then take the first right after Normansfield Avenue. This isn't named on the map but is called "Langdon Park". Turn immediately right again and park in one of the spaces marked "L.D.C. Reserved Parking". Walk down the gravel path (edged with red brick) and you will come to a big red door on the left, which is the main entrance into the building. If you are approaching from the Twickenham/Richmond direction then take your first left after Holmesdale Road into Langdon Park and then carry on as above.
