Bridging the Gap


Zachary Eastwood-Bloom | Joseph Gower | Gabrielle Hoad | Jochen Klein | Thomas Smith | Rupert White Curated by: Rachel Price Hatch Space's inaugural exhibition aims to combine our mission of encouraging interdisciplinary practice whilst engaging with current trends in contemporary art-making and discussing their relevant implications beyond the field of fine art. ‘Bridging the Gap' refers to our attempts to reconcile the increasing gulf between our physical environment and the digital world that represents it. A tension exists between the two, and there seems to be a current trend among artists addressing the issue of technological advances and the impact it is having on human experience. The artists involved in the show hold a shared concern that often technological transitions are being misconstrued as development. Drawn from a range of artistic backgrounds including ceramics, photography and sculpture much of the work here embraces digital media in view of warning against its proliferation. The implications of our favouring digital representations of the world over direct experience with it are far reaching. This is rooted in Hume's assertion that ideas are ‘impressions' of immediate sensations: Suggesting that a decline in day to day sensory experiences could result in a decrease in new idea generation, invention and ability to problem solve. Acting as a metaphor for mind and body this co-habitation of digital and physical worlds also acts as a catalyst in the increasing dissolution of boundaries between conceptual and material concerns in art-making.
