I exhibited in Experiencing Change / Changing Experience at ONCA Gallery, Brighton from 27th July –5th August 2016, showing my Spelman Cups (2016) and an accompanying text. This work explores Elizabeth Spelman's definitions of non-repairers, and our complex relationship to repair.
From the press release:What changes have you seen? | What makes you change? | What is change for? | What would you change? | Why do we resist change? | What makes us accept change?
International artists from the e:collective launch their debut exhibition of new work exploring relationships with change on a social, economic, environmental and personal level. The exhibition will challenge, enact, refresh and stimulate our perceptions and thoughts on change, and will be viewed alongside current research by scientists at the Global Sustainability Institute, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge.
During the exhibition, artists in residence Mark Vennegoor and Aurora Sciabarra will each develop new work in the gallery, inviting visitors to participate in their practice.
Experiencing Change | Changing Experience investigates a world where environment and society is in a state of flux with large, and sometimes devastating changes predicted for the future. Change can seem inevitable or out of our hands, so how much influence do we have on change? Do we just react to the changes we experience or can we intervene?
This project is devised by lead artist Valerie Furnham in collaboration with researcher Dr. Rosie Robison [GSI], and with the support of Arts Council England, ONCA Gallery and The Global Sustainability Institute.
PREVIEW | Tuesday 26th July 6:30pm – 9pm. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
