Having met at the Royal College of Art in the early 00s, Flood-Paddock and Round have been friends ever since, pursuing successful independent careers. The exhibition at 303 Projects marks a welcome opportunity to exhibit their work together for the first time.

When putting this show together we heard the sad news that Phyllida Barlow had died. Barlow was a close friend of Flood-Paddock, as well as an inspirational artist and tutor to both Flood-Paddock and 303 Projects director Alexander Costello during their respective times at The Slade. Had life not moved so quickly, there was even the plan to invite Barlow to show at 303 Projects in the near future. As If A Storm is a tribute to Barlow; the exhibition title lifted from a quote recalled by journalist Charlotte Higgins from a conversation with the late artist. “She told me she liked to work ‘as if a storm was coming’”.


JESS FLOOD-PADDOCK is a sculptor of international standing, whose work is regularly exhibited in leading galleries, museums and festivals, including Tate Britain, the V&A and Glasgow International. She is one of the leading British sculptors of her generation, whose work has attracted interest and acclaim around the world.

GILES ROUND is an artist who currently lives and works in London & St Leonards-on-Sea. Round works across disciplines – including art, design and architecture – through a wide range of techniques and approaches. Recent works have increasingly conflated biographical details, imagery and writings of artistic antecedents with Round’s own. The resulting objects, populated with citation and ‘misappropriation’, are semi-autobiographical, somewhat-fictitious and all, in their own way, attempts to communicate with the dead. Exhibitions include Brighton CCA, Brighton; The Hepworth, Wakefield; Spike Island, Bristol.
