The Exhibition titled “Somewhere in Between” ” is a representation of four international artists living and working in London that explores how contemporary art, in all its various forms, functions via art’s material qualities and imagery. With the excessive use of social media, smart phones, and various other technologies, we are confronted by thousands and millions of images every day. These representations of objects, images and figures unintentionally stay in our minds and memories in a particular way.
While Sam Padfield explores the fetishism and symbolisation of certain objects included in his body of work by re-contextualising their meaning,Radhika Khimji experiments with images but in different contexts by constructing objects consisting of fragmented body shapes and drawings of images from popular culture. Suzanne Moxhay produces unsettling photographic work by combining various images into one that gives a dream-like unreality, a living picture. In her latest works Kate McMillanhowever, explores objects and photographs that relate to the embodiment of memory, migration and historical trauma. By combining these four artists, “Somewhere in Between” aims to explore the juxtaposition of certain objects or images and to create something “new”.
The exhibition will consist of series of talks and a curatorial tour one on the week of the 7th of December 2015 and one on the week of 18th of January 2016. During the exhibition period there will be series of conversations between the artists posted on the website.
