Somerset House Studios announces the relaunch of project space G31

G31 at London's Somerset House Studios, formerly known as Gallary 31, will relaunch in February as a project space dedicated to the work of in-house artists and residency programme work.

The evolution will refocus efforts on connecting ongoing work to audiences, allowing them an opportunity to ‘look behind the curtain’.

Open year-round, there will be installations and durational activities, most of which will be free to attend.

From Friday, February 9th, Studios’ resident Libby Heaney will present their new VR installation, Heartbreak and Magic.

Exhibition Studio 01 will follow in March, presenting the work of early career artists enorê, Leila Dear and Ufuoma Essi, supported through a residency at the Studios.

Curator Jareh Das will share a new collaboration with Studios’ residents in June.

Somerset House Studios also announced two new commissioning partnerships for 2024: with Berlin’s CTM Festival x Goethe Institut London and Roberts Institute of Art.

The partnership between Berlin’s CTM Festival and the Goethe Institut London will support a Germany-based female or non-binary artist whose practice is within music and sound to create a new work. 

The collaboration with the Roberts Institute of Art will support the creation of a new performance commission to premiere at Somerset House next year. 

New Somerset House Studios Residents

Somerset House Studios welcomes artists Harun Morrison, Cooking Sections, and Aoibheann Greenan as new residents and CCI fellow, Louis Morlæ.

Harun Morrison is an artist and writer based on the inland waterways, whose work often employs collaborative processes.
Cooking Sections examine the systems that organise the world through food. Using site-responsive installation, performance and video, they explore the overlapping boundaries between art, architecture, ecology and geopolitics.
Aoibheann Greenan is an Irish artist whose practice is rooted in a critical exploration of experience design, navigating its dual nature of capture and escape. 

Louis Morlæ is the recipient of the inaugural 12-month Creative Technologies Fellowship in collaboration with UAL Creative Computing Institute (CCI). 

His sculptures reference domestic and industrial design language, through which he proposes an act of 're-worlding' - creating objects that question technological constructs and explore our potential to dream of new worlds.
