Details For 2017 To Be Announced Soon
THE DnA FACTORY MRBS & david apps @ UNDERDOG GALLERYFor us, THE DnA FACTORY MRBS, this exhibition is a chance to showcase a ‘Part One Section’ of a larger installation titled BackToGO. The collection of sculptures, prints and ephemera included in this show all interlink in the story [initially inspired by The Course Of Empire, a series of paintings by Thomas Cole, with their inspiration drawn from Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage by Byron]. They are all related, not only by maker but also as part of the game or piece of the puzzle. So in ‘Part One Section’ we’re taking the viewer on a truncated journey through history, through the here and now, to pose a question about the future, about repetition, about direction, about hope. We use the figure predominantly as a visual centre piece, clothed in metaphor, thereby the figure wears the emotional, political and physical responses to the question or questions posed. This also serves to emphasise the role of the our own species in the schematic, a reflection of society, a reflection of fears, of dreams, of desires and of consequences. As in The Course Of Empire, the path of this game takes us through ideas and images of growth, expansion and dissolution, a suggestion of their timeless and cyclical nature. The exhibition promises to be both dark and light, metaphorically and physically, very human, much like life.
