Alex Dordoy | The Moss is Dreaming | curated by Tom Morton

4 October 2017 – 11 November 2017

Private View: Thursday 5 October 2017 6-8pm

The first in a new series of solo exhibitions, collectively titled Lodger, curated by the independent curator, writer and frieze Contributing Editor Tom Morton. Running concurrent to the exhibitions in the central space, Lodger will expand Blain|Southern’s programme into new territories, often spotlighting a younger generation of artists.

Alex Dordoy (b. 1985, Newcastle-upon-Tyne) inaugurates the series with a presentation of new paintings and sculptures, which are poised between representation and abstraction, the organic and the digital.  Lodger continues in late November, with a solo show by the performance artist and sculptor Sophie Jung (b. 1982, Luxembourg).
