Created by writer/editor/creator/mastermind Bryony Stone last year, All In: is an art platform highlighting emerging artists that takes place at House of Vans – that venue in the labyrinth under Waterloo Station. Increasing from a 10-day residency in 2017 to this year’s month-long one, Bryony’s IRL art platform is bringing together four of London’s most exciting new faces.
Featuring Wonderbabes fine artist Alfie Kungu and fashion designer
and illustrator Paolina Russo, alongside painter George Rouy and multi-disciplinary artist Wilson Oryema, all four artists will create a new body of work to electrify the space during the month giving viewers a sneak peek at how they work and ending with a week-long public exhibition. Talking to Wilson about it, he says: “I’ve never done a residency before so it brings a bit of a challenge. It’s part performative that you’ve people visiting and your work is on display while you’re actually working through it. It brings a very interesting challenge – how much do you trust yourself and your ideas, how will you react to people being able to critique or observe your work before its in a finished space?”
The artists will also be involved in panels throughout the month discussing “youth, power and the need for radical creativity in London’s changing landscape.”
Kicking off next week (on the 9th), this is sure to be one of the most exciting creative ventures you’ll see and you deffo don’t wanna miss out.
