Bunkhouse is a non-for-profit artist-run project space, studio and residency programme, based in a Hackney home.
After an open call held in December, Luke Routledge has been selected and will be the first artist-in-residence at Bunkhouse. As a result of the residency, Bunkhouse is hosting an open studio weekend, where Luke’s work will be displayed in the ground floor project space. There will be an opening party and an artist talk and film screening as part of the public programme.
This is an opportunity to see contemporary art within a relaxed setting outside of the traditional gallery environment. It is a chance to actively participate in London’s DIY art culture where creatives are utilising private spaces in order to provide a platform for accessible contemporary art.
Bunkhouse welcomes all to the open studio weekend to see what Luke has been making over the week. The events are free and everyone is welcome. All you need to do is knock on the door.
Luke Bio: Luke is a visual artist working primarily in sculpture, currently based in Birmingham. Luke’s work uses the human figure as a framework for material experimentation, where everyday objects and materials are combined into life size figurative assemblages. Materials are central to Luke’s practice and his work explores their mutability when combined. Luke has exhibited at Two Queens; Leicester, Vyner Street Gallery in London and in 2017 participated in NAWKI, where his work was screened at 10 different locations across the UK including: CBS; Liverpool, EBC; Bristol, Focal Point Gallery in Southend and Limbo; London.
