The inaugural exhibition for 48:Eight Gallery at The School Creative Centre brings together 6 artists from 4 countries; Henriette Hellstern (DK), Hermione Allsop (UK), Jonathan Hills (UK), Nathan Crothers (UK/FR), Nick Archer (UK) and Olga Titus (CH/IN).
These 6 artists work across a number of disciplines including video, photography and painting. It is the first time they have been brought together in one space.
&c [Dark Matters] deals with identity politics, power structures, stereotype, perception, social stigma all under a dark, cynical veil of humour.
Facing a modern society of constant flux, of neoliberal individualism, how can an artist operate? What are the challenges they face in contemporary society? And how do they maintain a voice?
