Studio Ex Purgamento

Studio Ex Purgamento is a small gallery in Camden Town owned and curated by Natalia Zagorska-Thomas. The 7m x 2m white box attached to a domestic space opens two or three times a year to show work by contemporary artists in all media. It aims to present work of well and lesser known international artists alongside their British counterparts.

Tate Modern is getting bigger. A corporate-style video on the ground floor informs me that the ‘Project’ will include ‘an urban plaza’ and ‘a fabulous restaurant’. The first thousand visitors will get an inflatable day-glo rabbit signed by Jeff Koons. I made that last bit up, or maybe I didn’t, but not the first. To which I can only respond: the intimacy and congeniality of Natalia’s studio, whose human scale (6 by 2.3 metres; the Tate’s turbine hall is 152 metres long and 35 high) encourages playfulness without any loss of discrimination, have never been more necessary or welcome.
