If I Don't Have You
17 April 2016
For his one-day exhibition at Matt’s Gallery, If I Don’t Have You, Jim Woodall is making an intervention in gallery 1, removing the back wall of the gallery and installing sculptures which slowly evolve over the course of 8 hours. Taking its title from a love song by Gregory Isaacs, the time and place of the work is significant. If I Don’t Have You is Matt’s Gallery’s last show at Copperfield Road, thus the event is intended as a physical eulogy for the space.
Jim Woodall (b. 1978) works across sculpture, video, performance, and text. Exhibitions include: Adaptation of a Memory of my Father’s Studio Circa 1981, Studio RCA, London; Landscapes of Uncertainty, Marsden Woo, London; The Uneventful Day, Carroll/Fletcher, London. Woodall completed an MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art in 2013. He was a founding member of Cutup Collective.
