Thompson Hall: Making Together

ActionSpace artist Thompson Hall and artist Simone Kennedy exhibited in Making Together


9 October – 24 November
Royal Society of Sculptors, 108 Old Brompton Road, Dora House, London, SW7 3RA

ActionSpace artist Thompson Hall and artist Simone Kennedy exhibited a new body of work created as part of their Art et al x Royal Society of Sculptors collaboration in Making Together. The exhibition presented work created across two collaborations. ActionSpace artist Thompson Hall worked with Simone Kennedy MRSS, while Leslie Thompson of Venture Arts in Manchester collaborated with Eleni Maragaki MRSS.

Prior to the exhibition, Thompson and Simone worked collaboratively over four months, inspired by the inequalities of society. Thompson explored colourful, recognisable symbols to give visual references to his chosen subjects, whilst Simone’s multi-disciplinary practice reimagined the realm of being human.

The exhibition featured an accompanying text titled Tenderness and how to get thereĀ by curator Jes Fernie.

The exhibition was the result of a collaboration between Art et al. X Royal Society of Sculptors, creating an innovative collaborative programme and inclusive exhibition which featured artists working from UK supported studios, alongside their artistic peers, members of the Royal Society of Sculptors.

For their collaborative project titled Absence/Presence, Thompson and Simone explored personal identity, in particular the experience of growing up without a father figure. This then broadened to consider the relationship between identity and the home.
