Save Event: Concrete Fictions

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Concrete Fictions will be made up of 4 solo shows by contemporary artists Ricardo Alcaide, Jessie Makinson, Ayo & Oni Oshodi and Kadie Salmon.


Each artist has a different nationality and background. Each has a very different practice; their media include photography, painting, sculpture and performance. However they share an interest in the construction of scenarios that reveal a narrative. Through assembling images, often using different kinds of visual and material collage, each artist generates a concrete fiction.

Ricardo Alcaide makes deceptively simple models and photography, referencing urban and dystopian living environments and architecture. His work creates a critique about the made environment and our personal place within it.

Jessie Makinson paints multi-layered scenarios, broken up by iconography, figures and perspective to construct works that reveal the stories and textures of our daily lives.

Ayo & Oni Oshodi stage a new parade of games, soundworks, collage and text. They embrace coded, contradictory positions and aesthetics to conjure a sense of multiple-selves. 

Kadie Salmon re-constructs romanticised tableaux through photography, made-models and sculpture. Her own image often haunts her work, evoking enigmatic private fantasies.
