Thank you to everyone who has visited the Small World Futures exhibition on the streets or who has joined us online throughout February. The exhibition draws to a close today amongst the melting snow around London Bridge. Many of the mini sculptures have already been picked up but we'll try and visit all the locations in the #unsettledgallery over the next month to find if any still remain. You can see a full portfolio of the street placements HERE
As this is the last day of the exhibition we're placing all the sculptures that we couldn't quite fit into the 28 days of February. That means no imagined worlds from the writers but some fantastic treasures to find around London Bridge. Thank you to Kevin Acott, Dean Reddick, Natalie Low, Rebecca Lowe, Ed Arantus and Alban Low for your diverse and evocative writing throughout the month.
The artists have given us a real insight into what future worlds could look like. The project has been a genuine success and a joy to organise, it is one that we would like to develop in the future. The next chance to see these miniature dioramas is in Aabenraa, Denmark from the 3rd May until June 2018. Eskild Beck
will be organising this Small World exhibition and we'll post up some images when the time comes.
Thank you finally to all the artists involved - Sara Lerota, Ann Kopka, Bryan Benge,
Bethany Murray, Wayne Sleeth, Dean Reddick, Lesley Cartwright,
Melanie Ezra, Natalie Low, Stella Tripp, Tracy Boness, Jill Hedges,
Jenny Meehan, Francesca Albini, Alan Carlyon Smith and Alban Low.
Below are today's Small World Futures.......

seemingly empty space, juxtaposing it with physical matter in an
attempt to make the intangible tangible. Through the use of cast
space, poetry and found objects she attempt to describe a sense of
‘otherness’. Exploring the distinction between the known and
unknown that is directly linked to her research of the ‘sacred’.
These mere encounters with material and language sit in the
hinterland between that which is considered earthly and the

|Dean Reddick - #unsettledgallery No.7|
Dean Reddick is an artist, an art
therapist and a lecturer. He uses a range of media and enjoys
experimenting with casting processes using plaster, metal and resin
to explore the tensions between organic and geometric forms, positive
and negative space and the distortions that occur in producing casts.
As an artist and art therapist Reddick has a keen interest in the
role of art as a cultural phenomenon and as a container for
inter-personal meaning. He enjoys working collaboratively and has
been a regular exhibitor at Walthamstow's E17 Art Trail as well as
exhibiting with CollectConnect. Recently he published Art Therapy in
the Early Years: Therapeutic Interventions with Infants, Toddlers and
Their Families (pub. 2016, Routledge) alongside co-editor Julia

|Wayne Sleeth - #unsettledgallery No.8|
In his mature work since moving to the Lorraine region of France
in 2001, Wayne Sleeth reiterates and re-explores the source and
schema of his more formative sensations; the big skies above the flat
lands of both the Lincolnshire coast of his father and the polders of
maternal Flanders, where he also spent his childhood. The Lorraine
region for this confirmed European is not only geographically
strategic, but offers an echo of that very play of horizontality and
verticality where the artist draws freely on “l’espace” as he
knows and feels it, as far as the canvas

was born in Liverpool but later moved to
Essex to run a Hostel for homeless teenagers. She made her name in
the commercial graphic field and music photography until
she developed MS and now paints portraits from her Billericay studio.
Cartwright is a multitalented artist who is not bound by genre nor
convention. The work you see here is an extension of a fabulous
Pokémon Go project where she knitted small versions of Pokémon
characters and left them in public places for collectors to find.
Cartwright has been exhibiting with CollectConnect since the
Cardboard City exhibition in 2013.

St Thomas Street (London Bridge) at #unsettledgallery No.1.
|Ann Kopka - #unsettledgallery No.4|
Ann Kopka studied Fine Art at Central St Martins College of Art
and Design and the City Lit. She has studied The Practices and
Debates of Modern Art and graduated with a First Class Honours degree
from The Open University. She has also studied Museum Curating at
Tate Modern. Kopka has exhibited in London, the UK and USA. Her work
is held in private collections in France, Spain, UK, Australia and
Australia. Her experimental work engages with the research, process
and transformation of discarded everyday ephemera and disposable
objects of little or no intrinsic value. Through the concept of
‘making something out of nothing’ Kopka seeks to draw attention
to the throwaway nature of consumer society and question our
perception of its value systems.

Melanie Ezra is a Wales-based fine artist who works using her own
original photographs to create beautiful and intricate collages. She
often works in series, providing visual responses to external stimuli
such as literature, science, and music. She considers herself
a specialist in the deconstruction of time and the extension of
the moment. Recent works have evolved her practice to include three
dimensional mixed media art forms based on dolls, mannequins, and the
human form. The theme is always deconstruction and
reconstruction, whether this is through a photograph or through her
mixed-media works. Ezra openly describes herself as a ‘renegade
arts experimentalist’ and is happy dabbling in anything that pushes
her work to the limit and broadens her own
