An exhibition showcasing the works of five contemporary artists exploring the themes of conflict and crisis in the modern world.

About

At What Cost? is an exhibition showcasing the works of five contemporary artists exploring the themes of conflict and crisis in the modern world.

Each piece is characterised by instability and shaped by the effects of conflict; whether this be through contrasting and destructive forces, transient fragility or migratory movements hidden within the works. Through the process of juxtaposing visual details with conflicting materials, the works within the show attempt to destabilize what is recognisable to instead present traces of experiences, fragments of memory and reflections of an ongoing reality from lives lived on terms very different to our own.

The exhibition will be accompanied by an artist talk on the opening night, exploring the role of the artist as a mediator for the marginalized and disempowered whilst providing further context behind each of the works on show. The exhibition will then continue to create an ongoing dialogue over its duration through an on-site workshop aimed at helping a younger audience understand the complex themes in the show.

Featuring the work of Jo Scorah, Matilda Glen, James Bloomfield, Thaleia Kavvada and John Lockwood.
