Get Real brings together contemporary artworks that explore transformation and communication within unreal, imaginary and artificial contexts through photography, film, installation, performance and jewellery.

About

UK based Italian artist Emilia Telese, explores public and media fascination surrounding icons and celebrities, the heights of frenzy associated with the act of being famous and interprets society's obsession with perfection. Rikard à 'sterlund, a Kent-based photographer, investigates contemporary notions of beauty and our post modern relationship to nature, through a series of monumental portraits of artists and craftsmen and dynamic still life compositions influenced by 17th century Flemish paintings. Cumbrian-based jeweller Adam Paxon presents one-off pieces of sculptural jewellery that reference nature's languages of warning and courtship whilst maintaining a dual identity both on and off the body. Moon Young Shin from South Korea creates playful jewellery using silver, pearls, beads and handcrafted and self-dyed acrylic. Her jewellery attempts to express paradoxical ideas between the human form and the person wearing it.
