Thanks @jillaroo_uk for the wonderful write up and #review of #ReAssemble -
Re-Assemble1 with its word splicing hyphen emphasises an expectation that the artworks will encompass configurations done, undone and re-done. Though, like many of the works in this group exhibition, there is an essential contradiction which runs through the title.....
...Rosalind and I meet up at Re-Assemble where she spoke about the artists being selected on the basis of their work reflecting “something of where we are politically in the UK and how precarious things seem. From the Brexit vote to now, we’ve seen dramatic political and economic changes with people collaging ideas together from a diverse range of experiences and trying to remap territories around structural issues and borders. These notions were churning around in my mind when I was putting the show together. I was thinking about all the game playing and disruptiveness, not just here but abroad as well and how you can use artworks to articulate the actual things that are going on, possibilities that might arise from treading new paths as well as the interior feelings which are prevalent along the way. So what you’ll see in the exhibition is collage, hybridisation, manoeuvring, risk taking and precariousness. It’s also pertinent for the exhibition to be located in a legal environment where the daily goings on often include finely detailed negotiations around agreed boundaries in relation to systems of operation”. read the whole article in our bio ⬆️ 🌟💥💥💥 Artists in the show are; @tom_hackney_studio @_elly_thomas_ @ralphanderson77 @carol.wyss @dianataylorartist @mandyhudson_paintings @nealrock76 @benjamin_deakin @hermioneallsopp @gary_colclough @kateterryartist @tess_williams_studio @anaruepp @fab_alm_art @isminisamanidou @angelasmithart @dominicbeattiestudio and #DavidBenwhite
