Malgras|Naudet is an artist led gallery that was established in April 2011.

Sovay Berriman (b. 1972, Penzance, Cornwall) graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2003 and currently works between London and Cornwall.  Berriman’s practice considers the dynamics of space in relation to power and the potential of fantasy.  Working across sculpture, drawing, text and event, individual pieces exist as autonomous object or activity, whilst also reinforcing and extending the space and ideas of others, choreographing an overall experience.

Recent activity includes the group exhibition Representing Nothing… (June – July 2012), The Agency, London; 59.14 N 3.34 W (April 2012), Birsay, Orkney, a one-day performative event as part of the Erlend Williamson Art Fellowship and ||HOST|| (Oct 2012,) a collaboration with Laura Mansfield at The Royal Standard, Liverpool as part of the Liverpool Biennial.  Berriman is currently undertaking a new Symbol Archive (2008 – ongoing) project with Spacex, Exeter, Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange, Cornwall, and Engagement Network, which explores the development of visual literacy in pre-education early years.
