CABIN gallery news and events.
Marlene Steyn has been shortlisted for the Saatchi New Sensations 2014.
New Sensations was launched seven years ago to support the most imaginative and talented young artists in the UK and to present their work to an international audience during Frieze Week.
The Prize is now established in the UK as the most important annual prize for emerging artists, and it showcases each year the best graduates studying at UK and Republic of Ireland art schools.
The New Sensations 2014 exhibition will take place in October 2014 at B1, Victoria House, Bloomsbury, London WC1, in a 22,000 sq ft venue exclusively represented by Location House. The opening party (invitation only) will be from 6.30-9pm on 13 October, and the exhibition will open every day from 14-18 October, 11am to 6pm.

Petra Power: The concept of place seems to be very significant in your work. What is the significance of documenting places through photography and then re-contextualising them through painting?
Juliette Pearce: The most important thing to me is that I visit these spaces and the most incredible frustration is that our eye-sight is not wide enough to capture it all. They almost feel quite cut-off, so putting collages and photos together gives me the opportunity to see a wider angle. When you go somewhere you don’t experience the world from one point of view, you look at one angle then go to the next and that is how you experience a place. So to photograph, it allows me to combine these spaces altogether within an image.
We're delighted to have on show the work of British artist Freya Douglas-Morris. Freya was selected for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries in 2012. She will later on this year be showing works on paper at The Saatchi Gallery in London.
