Future Primitive at Gossamer Fog (Date: 1 June – 30 June, Price: Free)

Nestled away on Deptford high-street you’ll find Gossamer Fog, the low-key gallery space showcasing some of the capital’s most forward-thinking contemporary art.

The current Future Primitive exhibition is a collection of works exploring ideologies of progress, ritualism, medieval superstition and primitivism.

“Thus there is the Inside, and the Outside, which is the inside of an outside. Loop.

Hallucinatory interchanges between human and its surrounding. A voyage in psychedelic caves. Dream.

Silicon skins, post-human leather hanging like a hunting trophy. Wormholes.

Spirulina, a super food and the oldest form of life on earth. Recurrence.

Traditions and poetical metaphors of human culture that give access to future systems of collectivity. Cycle.

Arrowheads forged by a medieval fletcher using a meteorite bought through Google. Glitch.

And so on…”
