New Work - Mixed Medium


Seven Artist Group Show - Of Foxes and Ghosts

"The title of the show is inspired by Pu Songling’s ‘Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio’, a collection of fantastic tales aimed at criticising 18th century Chinese society. Ghosts and spirits are liminal entities, in-between beings, journeying across the tangible and the realm of shadows. They are seldom recognised as being ‘physical’ but their powers can abruptly intervene in the lives of humans.

The continuous Covid-19 pandemic and the necropolitics it has enabled; the invasion of Ukraine, Palestine and the wider imbalance in the global distribution of power; the abstract laws determining the fate of those bodies who migrate; the climate collapse: these are only a few of the mingling agents at play in our society.

The show champions each artist’s individual life-changing experiences and the metaphors they each created to express their selves whilst coping with the geopolitical events loudly reshuffling the world around us."

Artists - Maya Bloch, Henry Curchod, Veronika Hapchenko, Antonia Kuo, Julia Maiuri, Maciej Nowacki and Areum Yang
