   Leonie Nagel    with Kingsgate Workshops   Leonie Nagel (b. 1992) lives and works in Berlin.  In summer 2017 Leonie Nagel became the first international artist to take part in Kingsgate Workshops’ studio residency programme.  The Sirens of St L. The meeting-point  at Kingsgate Project Space is an exhibition of new works begun in London and developed in the intervening months between London and Berlin.  Accompanying the film stands a large black piece of non-utilitarian furniture. The interior space of this block is invisible, while each tile on its skin is imprinted with scavenged detritus to depict dumb smiley faces.

   Tamara Kuselman    with Delfina Foundation   Tamara (Argentina/Spain) is fascinated by the potential in the tension of a falling object - the loss of control between being dropped until it hits the surface below. She believes unexpected situations are an opportunity to learn about your own character and abilities. In her work, Tamara evokes the tug of war between anticipation and loss of control: ceramics that seem creased like a piece of cloth, and performers who analyse the fall while falling. The suggestion of movement immediately undermined by stillness.    Project: How Can Large Mountains Enter Small Ice, June 2018

   Nissa Nishikawa    with Phytology   Nissa Nishikawa works with performance, painting, ceramics, glass, and film. Her practice interprets traditional forms of dance, ritual and craft in ways that illuminate the current crisis in ecology and community. She engages with alchemical and animistic practices through the use of elemental base materials, forging processes of transformation that are intuitively informed by a close observation of the intelligence of nature and the non-human as systems of navigation.  The all-gender liquid loo came out of a series of  co-design  discussions with Phytology about finding alternative ways to transform and compost human waste, whilst also creating a toilet space which is accessible for all genders and practices.

   Laura White    with The Museum of Royal Worcester   For the next few months London based artist Laura White is working at RS to realise a commission for an exhibition at Museum of Royal Worcester (MoRW), organized by Meadow Arts. The installation which will be sited at MoRW from September 2018 - March 2019 explores our relationships to the production of porcelain today, such as how the digital environment has affected our relationship to porcelain, from the handmade museum collectables, to the mass-produced digitally designed slip cast crockery we use every day in our homes.  Laura has developed and produced a collection of porcelain objects that occupy and explore their own materiality - Working with the materials capabilities and limitations, such as the collapses, breaks and cracks to expose both the vulnerability of the material while offering up new possibilities.
