In 2016 the Art Assassins developed a two month research project with artist Hannah Lees investigating how we catalogue our daily lives.

Their exhibition, #allinsouthlondon in May 2016 brought together their evolving Instagram feed (@allinsouthlondon), objects collected when mud larking on the River Thames and a soundscape recalling the objects found in their pockets.

This project was part of Stories Uncovered led by TATE with 198 Gallery Contemporary Arts and Learning, Black Cultural Archives, Octavia Foundation, South London Gallery and Whitechapel Gallery and was included as in the Stories Uncovered exhibition at Tate Britain Mon 12th Sept – Fri 9th Dec 2016.

Art Assassins are a group of young beings aged between 14-21 years old who meet every Tuesday at the South London Gallery. To find out more about the Art Assassins click here.

Hannah Lees (b. 1983) work investigates ideas of the cycles of constancy and mortality; the sense that things come to an end and the potential for new beginnings. This constancy, be it in religion or in organic matter, is visible in her practice through her attempts to make sense of and recognise traces of life. Her work focuses towards an understanding of the essential nature of the materials she uses. Lees completed a Post-graduate Diploma at Chelsea College of Art, London (2011) and a foundry residency at the Royal College of Art, London (2012).

The South London Gallery’s young people’s programme is supported by the SLG Council and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
