Morgan Tipping – No Fixed Abode
Saturday September 17th – Saturday October 22nd 2016
Private View – Thursday 22nd September 5-8pm
No Fixed Abode presents the work of Morgan Tipping, a London born artist whose artwork explores social and political issues through humour, film, performance, photography and sculpture. Passionately committed to community development Tipping has undertaken an artist residency at MildMay Park care home in Dalston, London. As well as being an educator and visual activist Tipping has recently volunteered within various refugee camps in Europe.
Tipping’s work focuses on the themes of housing, community and a sense of belonging whilst making it clear that failure is a vital part of being creative. Central to her practice is the idea of using comedy to explore deeper social issues.
The artwork exhibited in No Fixed Abode is informed by working with residents in a care home, students from London schools, students of diaspora in London colleges and displaced people within refugee camps in Europe. Exploring the theme displacement it draws together work made over the past two years showing the unique stories of these individuals and groups.
No Fixed Abode showcases two films ‘Outsiders’ and ‘Wherever I Lay My Hat.’ It will also feature artwork created by the STM Year 11 students in a collage workshop provided by the artist. For more information on Morgan Tipping please visit http://www.morgantipping.co.uk/
