Talking to Ourselves and Other F*ggots at Trafalgar Avenue
'Talking to Ourselves and Other F*ggots' (my own self-censorship) is a two-person exhibition of works by London-based artists Corsin Billeter and Leon Pozniakow. I first encountered the latter at an exhibition of emerging talent at Annka Kultys earlier this year, and I can honestly say that his painting 'Bristol International - Newark to PDX' left a deeply profound imprint on my memory. Aside from stunning visual qualities in a rich, deep blue hue, its depiction of queer tenderness is incredibly emotional and potent, and as such I was excited to see that the artist was showing in South London, at Trafalgar Avenue gallery space, which sits nose-to-nose with Burgess Park. My hopes for a continuation of the themes I had seen in that one work were a little indulgent, but fortunately they were met and exceeded, with a deeper narrative.
