AboutFocusing on the process of artistic compromise and reflecting upon the reality of post-graduate life, the show presents artworks that react to the challenge of creating work as a collective, and attempt to live up to the cavernous grandeur of the Old Truman Brewery. Playing with notions of spectacle and ambition, All Smoke and No Fire includes a Trojan horse (with which Tether will infiltrate Free Range's design week) and mobile architectural interventions, amongst other works.
Like the Wizard of Oz - hiding behind a curtain and bombastic effects to disguise his slight appearance- All Smoke and No Fire tries to act far grander than it actually is.
