Lily trained in design for performance at Wimbledon College Of Art  and now works in London as a freelance theatre and event designer. She has worked on and for a very varied group of projects, productions and companies in the last 2 years including design work for PunchDrunk, You, Me, Bum Bum Train, Thames Festival, National Opera Studio, National Theatre, Shunt Vaults and the Etcetera Theatre. Lily is also currently writing a script for a production to be performed at the Edinburgh Festival 2010.

” For this project I wanted to create something that was an instant response to that specific area. Not too considered, but somehow obvious. I used things that i already owned, that have been used before. I wanted to create a living thing in a little place of calm.

I enjoy working on a smaller scale because you have to strain to look. And in that straining, we see things more clearly.

I enjoy working in a pre-existing environment because what is ordinary can become extraordinary.”

A few years ago Marta came to London to study Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins, which she graduated from in 2007. Since then she has worked for several design studios.

“When I am not designing I like to work as well on my illustrations.I like to portrait  people I find on the street, transport or random places. For it I deploy ink, pens, watercolours and sometimes my computer.”

Somang Lee

Somang Lee is an illustrator. She is interested in our internal realms and how they connect to the external world.
Imagination is the place these two come together.

‘Kindheitswald’ (Childhood forest) is inspired by German fairytales and folklore.
As someone who grew up in Germany and has been greatly influenced by its many tales I wanted to go back to the place where my imagination started flourishing as a young girl.
It is an internal world that has now been made visual in a living space where one would usually sit and eat or sleep.
The forest of my childhood is not meant to be naive and idyllic but shows the darkness of a child’s imagination as well as it’s secrets.

Alan will present his “Tears were mine”  installation.

” Glass lost never sure who I am inside  a whisper of photographs, a fleeting moment a time eternall that lasted for a min, why should I stay here why should I look with my eyes why do I miss her why do I care why is every cloud I see round why is she not with me.”

Mique Moriuchi is a freelance illustrator, living and working in London.
She studied illustration at Norwich School of Art and Design (’94-’97), then completed a masters in Sequential design and illustration at University of Brighton (’97-’99), during which time she became very interested in children’s book illustration.
She has illustrated 16 picture books to date, and has also worked on a variety of projects including greeting cards and magazine illustrations.

” I love colour, paper, textures and pattern, and create my illustrations using acrylic paint and collage.

As an artist/illustrator, I believe that it’s important to have an outlet where there are no limitations, and I feel that The last week gallery offers me a unique opportunity to work freely in an environment very different to what I am used to.

It’s interesting to take my “studio” out to an unfamiliar place, and work with what is in front of me.

I am out of my comfort zone.”

In my work I have been mostly exploring the visual language of  photographic image. In my recent projects I have been looking at private spaces, others and mine.

Objects, experiences, memories and everyday entities that translate into something more, something beyond that.

I work with constructed image and I am seeking to establish a space constructed from the perceived qualities of a number of spaces merged within my work.

In the “Take me to a happy place” piece, that I produced for The last week gallery show I am challenging my practice by working in 3D. This installation is distributed between balcony, bathroom and the room that I have lived in for the past six months.

it is about a journey, about what has had and what will. about the gap between spaces, and the meanwhile. and what’s gone and what is present and what is there to come. not yet. already.
