Rose Hatcher brings you her first solo exhibition at the Fish Factory featuring previously unseen work dealing with ideas and expectations of femininity, aspiration and normality in today’s society. Rose’s work begins with photography, often self portraiture. Source images are then re-worked, re-photographed, montaged or made into three dimensional objects as she explores their reproducability and tangible qualities.
Private View Friday 4th April
Saturday 5th April- Thursday 24th April
Using Falmouth Wharf as both a platform and a setting the exhibition will explore the potentials of appropriated space, the work will be presented within the space which it has deconstructed. The Wharf is a space redundant of its intended function and currently accommodates an alternative community the work will be a response to the alternative uses and potentials of the site.

Is your computer looking at you? Does digital technology engage and gaze? Are human bodies analogue and if so is God a computer? What is the essential difference between an LCD screen and a sheet of paper? This exhibition will test the limits of our interactions with technology and the analogue world we inhabit. The work will explore the friction between our ethereal technological transactions and the viscera of human existence.
Fish Factory Art Space is an artist-led, creativity driven gallery and studios on Falmouth Wharves. We are entering our fourth year and continue to provide an arena for creatives of all kinds and of all abilities to make, share and exhibit. If you are interested in hiring a studio or space for an exhibition, or if you would like to volunteer at the Fish Factory please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.

Part of the Whitechapel Gallery First Thursdays Initiative
Private View & Launch Party 6pm Thursday 7th November
Guests are welcome between 6pm and 9.30pm
For four weeks this Winter one of Britain's most highly acclaimed, youngest, and most remote arts collectives comes to the capital to mount a unique exhibition celebrating and investigating the history and modern social fabric of London's East End.
Exhibited at Sir John Soane's St John on Bethnal Green Church, Fish Factory *London* will be a month of astonishing new popular and conceptual Art free to view and open to all featuring Clarissa Beothy, Stuart Blackmore, Nicholas Chaundy, Rose Hatcher, Alice Mahoney, Jimp, Kate Merry, Anthony Neale, Darren Ray & Kim Zip
Fish Factory Art Space presents work from a range of disciplines to interact with the history and architecture at St John's. The visiting artists have created site specific work which explores the work of Sir John Soane, the spaces inside the church and the history and inhabitants of Bethnal Green. Curated by Fish Factory founder and curator Rose Hatcher this show will aim to explore and transform this historic and homely church with an outsider's perspective and a flair for the extraordinary. The Fish Factory Art Space was founded in May 2011 and is situated in a former scallop processing warehouse on an old wharf in Falmouth, Cornwall. It is a poly-functional art space providing studio space, a place for exhibition and a nurturing, lively atmosphere for local contemporary artists to. We also aim to provide a forum for alternative styles of illustration and design as well as more conceptual fine art which we feel is under-represented in the Cornish art scene. Visitors to the Fish Factory London exhibition can expect to see an inventive array of styles and mediums as they wind through St John's galleries and staircases.
The exhibition will be open on Thurs 7th November and Thurs 5th December 6-9.30pm and Saturdays and Sundays during the month from 9am-5pm.
