A group exhibition with works by Larry Achiampong, Ewa Axelrad, Alex Farrar, Joe Fletcher Orr, Rowena Harris, Jasleen Kaur, littlewhitehead. Half mocking, half nostalgic British Summer Time, distills the allure and revulsion of that particularly British sea side summer experience.

About

From the conservative old folks of Bournemouth and the Isle of White to the wonderfully excruciating pleasures of Blackpool, South Shields, Margate, there is the tinny echo of faded Little Britain. Surrounded by half wrought tokens of a forgotten empire, OAP’s wheeze in sweat drenched shirts to the pool side, just about surviving the sudden rain only to have ‘that nice foreign nurse’ resuscitate them as the sun beats down at midday and it all becomes too much. We are an island nation.
