Sat 2 Feb-Sat 30 Mar
Survey is a collection of works from 15 emerging artists from all over the UK. The exhibition brings together these different artists to speak of both individual and collective as the various issues facing the self and society are explored. The inherent yet harmonic paradox of Survey is clear even in its title: a survey is usually a retrospective look at one’s career and yet this exhibition is full of fresh faces at the beginning of their career. Somehow, this subversion makes perfect sense for g39’s new installation as the artists look at the contemporary to take a step towards the future.
The 15 artists featured explore a diverse range of issues. The focus can go from the intimately personal, like Flo Brooks’ No Body Feels Right, So Why Am I Any Different? to drawing attention to collective responsibility, like Chris Alton’s A Hollywood Film In Which Climate Change Is Averted does. At the heart of it, many of these works hope to connect and survey how the self and the outer world are intertwined.
The duality of Survey promises to be its strength, with so many fresh faces being able to express various sentiments and still come together in the form of this exhibition.
