Three young artists explore the cinematic language in their own original ways through the mediums of painting, photography and sculpture. Artists: Michael Slusakowicz Justyna Kabala Christopher Stoneman Date: 02/12/2011-04/01/2012 Private view: 01/12/2011, 7pm Entry: Free Michael Slusakowicz - painter My visual language prods and questions the structure of social relations. One of my main areas of interest is the social repression of human sexual desires and the impact of fear on human sexuality. My reflections on the subject are embodied in a series of images and writings concerning the fear as a main driving force of human imagination. My other areas of interest are social and cultural changes in our society, our cultural development, aesthetic needs, as well as changes in definition of Fine Art over the last decade. In my practice, I use various media, which include painting, sculpture, photography, writing, drawing, and video. email: michaelslusakowicz@yahoo.co.uk Justyna Kabala - video artist, printmaker The artist uses the camera as a medium for the documentation of performative gestures; simple but unusual feats of endurance. Often excessively long or extremely short in duration, her videos present us with an anti-narrative approach and undermine our traditional expectations of film. On one hand, Justyna's work is aesthetically pleasing, and on the other, it can be slightly distressing and uncomfortable to watch. web: http://www.justyna-kabala.com/ email: j.k.kabala@gmail.com Christopher Stoneman — sculpture, product designer A large portion of Chris' practice involves him working with and drawing from the moving image, yet applying it outside the context of the screen. He practices within the slip between discipline, object and environment often through projection and the moving image but also through material and light. web: http://www.cstoneman.com/ email: hello@cstoneman.com
