‘i’m not against guided tours, but I won’t take one’ presents new works by London-based artist Pandora Lavender. Lavender’s works emerge from a heavily involved action based practice in which materials are activated through detached gestures (often through machinery or nature, not of the hand). Materials are crushed, dropped, melted, suspended, and removed from their industry through a series of repetitions. Repetition is used to bring out difference, otherness and unlimited variations. In this exhibition, through sculpture, performance, film and a publication – the relationship between material, process and site is explored.

Odira Morewabone 9.12.16 | 7pm

On 9th December, Block 336 screened the short documentary: MATATUism: Stylising A Rebel by Brixton based artist Odira Morewabone. The film explores the subcultural creative workspace of Nairobi’s Matatu industry and its creative output in the form of art, design, fashion, music and language. Matatu, as they’re referred to in Kenya are a collection of minibus share taxis known for their exuberant visual style, operating on fixed routes with no fixed timetable serving as the public mode of transport in Kenya. In association with the event, Block 336 collaborated with Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen, a local restaurant offering a contemporary twist on traditional Ghanaian dining experience.
