OPENING HOURS: 1PM - 6PM DAILY
A group show by London based Chelsea graduates concerned with the hidden, transient and often unspoken meanings we give to our everyday lives. The artists work transcends traditional boundaries, and, although each artist has a clear identity in their own right, their works can be seen as one large piece, with the constituent parts sometimes complementing, sometimes questioning one another.
Found objects and sculptures evoke a magical sense of ‘The Other’, the subjectivity of our memories and perceptions, and the inability to know for sure calls to mind Helen Cixous’s statement: ‘Our dialogues are often mute. This does not prevent them from taking place’. The artists accept the uncertainty of meaning and present work that can draw the viewer in, developing a symbiotic dialogue between artistic intention and audience perception. Their works operate in the dialectical spaces between presence and absence, perception and understanding, where a thousand individuals’ internal narratives bloom.
These artists explore the margins of identity, highlighting the transient, ever-changing nature of the Self, focussing on the fragmented identities and personas we impose on ourselves and eachother. They seek to make conscious the ordinarily hidden pathways that lead us from perception through cognition to action, creating an immersed and embodied spectatorship.
These artists dream aloud.
