Solo exhibition of paintings by Agnieszka Mlicka.
Set in a building awaiting its own refurbishment, the exhibition shows the artist's view on how the city is planned and built, in contrast to its organic growth.
In cities as old and dense as London, old buildings are constantly reused and the list of planning applications islong.
But why do we need to ask permission to plan, and who do we ask for this permission? What does it mean when we are not permitted to do as we wish?
These questions attempt to erase and redraw the line between the individual's own territory and that of greater authorities. Do citizens have a voice? Does the urban planner/architect have the veto power?
The paintings are a visual critique of these conflicts in the cityscape, and show how urban planning is transforming the view through our window.
