 to December 15, 2018

Free & open to all

OPENING NIGHT // Thursday 22 Nov, 5-9pm // Free & open to all, with free Turf cocktails, BYOB welcome.


Companion to a Fall is a sculptural installation by artist Kira Freije. The exhibition has been made whilst thinking about complicity and culpability. How we choose which thoughts to embody or enact, and the moralistic mechanisms that inhibit or propel us.


A ring exists around our movements, our being and our thinking. The ring is of our own making, its gape can widen or shrink.


What or who gives us this energy?


I think about leadership.


How cruelty and compassion come from the same face, the same smile, the same continuous thought.



We work closely with local partner schools, and all schools and groups are welcome to visit our exhibitions. Please book ahead to receive free resources and an intro to the exhibition. Contact for more info



The exhibition and events were made possible with the generous support of the Arts Council England & Croydon Council.
