Rasheed Araeen, Peter Fillingham and Chelsea Space

Event date
14 November 2018 - 14 December 2018 (11am to 5pm)
Rasheed Araeen, Peter Fillingham and Chelsea Space

Rasheed Araeen and Peter Fillingham have very particular approaches to how an audience encounters sculpture through material, colour, space, repetition, modularity and unit structuring. Their sculptures are embedded with narratives, which are humanist and political in nature, and can be perceived through their abstract forms, colour and materiality. Together, they talked about a ‘Chelsea Space approach’ to exhibition projects, which allows artists to reveal their processes. From this they concluded that the title of the exhibition should be ‘Rasheed Araeen, Peter Fillingham and Chelsea Space’, implying a spirit of collaboration and equality.  

Peter Fillingham exhibited at Chelsea Space in 2011 in the exhibition ‘Ideal Home’ and was instrumental in the realisation of our 2014 exhibition Almost Bliss: Notes on Derek Jarman’s Blue. Chelsea Space included publications and multiples of Rasheed Araeen’s work, including The Golden Verses, Black Phoenix, Third Text and Making Myself Visible, in our 2015 exhibition Re-Recordings concerning Chelsea College of Arts’ African-Caribbean, Asian & African Art in Britain Archive established by former Librarian, Liz Ward.
