Perspectives brings together different ways of seeing, creating and communicating visually.
As a group show, it goes beyond institutional barriers, with nine students and recent graduates from different academic disciplines being invited to share glimpses of their work. The exhibition intends to outline the particular realities and themes important to the artists’ lived experiences.
Open for a brief period, the works on display open conversation around the subjects of consciousness, perception, safe spaces, resolving trauma, as well as the implications of globalisation and industrialism on the lives of East and Central European creators. An honest exploration of complex topics which will allow the visitor to reflect on topics outside of their perspective through a familiar frame
Through combining a mixture of portraiture, experimental and documentary photography, ceramic sculpture and film, a multidisciplinary culmination of thoughts, feelings and questions surrounding contemporary living are evoked. Amidst each distinctive approach to form and conceptualisation, all works consider ways of caring for, and re connecting to, natural and urban environments, and personal and cultural histories.
Featuring works by Yassen Grigorov, Ruby Kiusum Lau, Stefani Stoyanova, Malina Mayer, Anastasia Mihaiu, Meghan Durham, Maksymilian Jeremi Hryniewicki, Wera Pawlak and Teodora Georgieva.
Exhibition produced and curated by Bella Aleksandrova & co-curated with Fabian Florea. Poster design by Dina Shirley.
