Sid Motion, Gallery Owner
Though her eponymous gallery has been open but a moment in art world years (since last June, to be exact), Sid Motion is already garnering unfettered praise as a gallerist. Makes sense, given that she’s long been known as one of London’s young curators to watch. Located in an old betting shop in King’s Cross, Sid Motion Gallery’s success is, of course, a testament to Motion’s talents. Still, she remains characteristically humble. “There seems to be real excitement for the artists I am working with and it is so great to be part of their development,” she says

“I guess I’m trying to have my cake and eat it; I’m being two types of artist at once.” Roland Hicks creates his own unique blend of photorealism with unnerving reproductions of mundane objects and industrial materials.

Rodrigo is interested in photography as an expanding field, exploring its connections with film, sculpture, text, sound and localised performance in his many projects, exhibitions and publications.
The conversation was moderated by gallerist Sid Motion.
Nathan Eastwood’s paintings come across as snapshots of everyday life in England, because that is exactly how they came to fruition: Eastwood would take photos on a phone and work from these images to create his atmospheric paintings. Scenes in launderettes, a queue at a food bank and a man glancing at a ticket before walking through a doorway all make for remarkable subject matter, many crafted in monochrome and all with immense detail, and viewing that feels at once inclusive and voyeuristic. Sid Motion Gallery is still a young venture, in an area of London undergoing exciting regeneration, rendering Eastwood’s observations of English life especially prescient.

“Only 4 months ago the artistic manager of Photo London, Sid Motion, opened her eponymous gallery in a former betting shop near King’s Cross focused on modern art and photography. However, the place has become a key destination in the contemporary art scene in the capital. The director, of only 28 years old, wants to create a space to show what interests the real artists and make visitors questions asked and discussed. Until November 5th you can attend the show Francesca Longhini and Michelle Conway, where they explore the issue of existence and contemporary life in urban spaces through painting, sculpture and photography.”
