Space Station Sixty Five

Richard & Judy’s Channel 4 TV show was filmed in Kennington for eight years, and part of the former TV studio is now the Space Station Sixty Five art gallery at 373 Kennington Road. SS65 is run by artists and features modern art and sculpture, often with a feminist aspect.

At times, you might feel like you’re in the art gallery equivalent of Reginald Perrin’s Grot, but there is great stuff such as the automata by Paul Spooner. This one is called The Dream although the version in the gallery is slightly different:

I’m not sure who this is by but it’s quite fun:

Some items are for sale including these toby jugs by Cathie Pilkington for just £425 each. Better pictures of them can be found here, and they do sell some cheap items as well:

The gallery is open Thursday to Saturday midday to 6pm, or by appointment, and they stay open until 8.30pm on the last Friday of every month, which means tonight.
