Rabbet is hosting a solo exhibition of London-based painter David Bance, curated by Strange Days.

Join for the opening reception on the 16th May, 6-9pm.

The Turning Worm is a journey through an imaginal edgeland. Informed by the post-industrial landscape and marshlands that flank the banks of the River Lea in North East London and the visual vernaculars of suburban life in the coastal towns of the South East of England. Bance transforms the topography of the urban hinterland into a site of cultural, political and mythic importance. Unloved public sculptures and abandoned municipal buildings become poised surrealist objects, or sites of arcane worship. Concrete underpasses, and fetid canals, shopping trollied and overgrown, are transformed into a home to fair folk, goodfellows and boggarts. This is a thin place.
