Following six months as the Nina Stewart Artist-in-Residence in the South London Gallery’s Outset Artists’ Flat, Eoghan Ryan presents a multi-faceted installation of new work in the first floor galleries. Drawing on his everyday encounters with people, places, animals and objects in the course of his stay, Ryan translates his experiences of them into an assemblage of disparate and often obscure references. Offering glimpses of the thought processes binding these elements together, a short film exposes the practice by which they were selected and lures us into its bizarre logic.

A publication, also entitled Oh wicked flesh! also accompanies the exhibition. The publication explores the conditions of the contemporary human body and features contributions from Hannah Black, Susan Conte, Sam Keogh, Laura Morrison, Joseph Noonan-Ganley, Eoghan Ryan, Linda Stupart and Nina Wakeford. Edited by Joseph Noonan-Ganley.
