Private View: Thursday 7 May 6-10pm At the fringes of language is the ordinary human life it supports. No need for queer entities produced ad hoc to allay our philosophical embarrassment.
Media need not be physical – as is the case with conceptual art. Yet, whilst conceptual art emerges from visual art, it has now come to fulfil its potential as an art kind in itself. But each art in itself has edges; and can learn from what lies just beyond those edges.
Artists are foragers. They notoriously borrow and steal. We are used to them borrowing from other artists in the same art kind, but less used to them stealing from the street or borrowing from non-artistic sources.
The work of the artists who contribute to this show, curated by Gail Olding, is diverse in its nature and calls upon different strands of connection to art kinds and to their non-art relatives. However, each is committed to the fineness of art and the combination of work in this ‘arcade’ is a celebration of that diversity.
Gail Olding, Gianluca Pisano, Pamela Gerrie, Dom Chastney, Edward Winters, Jane Price, Olivia Davis, Graeme Messer, Bettina Stuurman, Charlie Dillon
