57a Lant Street London SE1 1QN

Studio Sienko Gallery has the rare pleasure of presenting an exhibition

by Catherine Shakespeare Lane running from the 6th to the 16th of March


This very private and intense artist explores the streets of London and

beyond with a scientific approach to objects and images discarded by

society, placing them in meaningful and eye opening assemblages.

Her sensitivity and intelligence makes us shrivel when realizing the

content of the piece NO LAUGHING MATTER. We see gas cartridges for

soda siphons lovingly placed in a pink lined box. Same size, some are

grey, some are silver and sometimes they kill the user.

Our walls, built of many ages of London warehouse bricks, are a fitting

backdrop for this show. We have not removed any of the character of

this Victorian wood workshop since it became the gallery in 1993.

Catherine's exhibition is the 69th in our premises.

Studio Sienko is open during office hours.

If you wish to meet Catherine at the gallery, please email her on:

Welcome - Olga Sienko, gallery curator.
