Reality and its disorders
Degrees of Freedom invited artists to respond to the new currents that have shaped their lives for a physical exhibition at the Espacio Gallery 9-19th September 2020.
In their response artists shared the mundane as well as transformational impact of the past few months on their lives. Looking ahead and beyond, sometimes inside and sideways, the works in the exhibition bring together very different perspectives on that experience.
Using strategies ranging from humour and playfulness to forensic attention to the body, the works examine states of minds, the new rituals for interaction, the heightened role of touch, and the dance of the body between danger and desire.
Artists taking part:
Lewis Andrews, Andrea Arnold, Roelof Bakker, Liana Bortolozzo, Lizzie Brown, Chris Butler (We are Willow), Wu Cong, Sally de Courcy, Ahmed Farooqui, Yvonne Feng, Aliayta Foon-Dancoes, Paul MacIntyre, Tom Hackett, Roisin Kerslake-Sims, Lisa Kreuziger, Mariusz Libel, Christina Lovey, Julia Maddison, Alicia Monedero, Louise Mortimer, LidiaLidia, Jenny Nash, Nenad Nedeljkov, Jody Oberfelder, Marta Pieregonczuk, Louise Scillitoe-Brown, Marketa Senkyrik, Nat Li Lin Steinhouse, Terry Sylvester, Henryk Terpilowski, Freya Tewelde, Christine Warrington, Ben Wilson, Julian Woodcock.
