About

WITH THE WINTER SEASON BREATHING FROSTILY UPON US, THE GALLERY OF EVERYTHING HAS EXTENDED ITS CURRENT SHOW DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND.

JARVIS COCKER’S JOURNEYS INTO THE OUTSIDE WILL CONTINUE UNTIL THE NEW YEAR WITH AN ADDITIONAL BESPOKE SPACE IN THE GALLERY DEDICATED TO THE LIFE’S WORK OF ICE-CRYSTAL PHOTOGRAPHER, WILSON SNOWFLAKE BENTLEY.

THE INAUGURAL EXHIBITION TAKES ITS NAME FROM THE SEMINAL TV SERIES, JOURNEYS INTO THE OUTSIDE (CHANNEL 4, 1998) BY FILMMAKER MARTIN WALLACE AND MUSICIAN AND BROADCASTER JARVIS COCKER: A LONG-TIME FAN OF ALL THINGS COUNTER-CULTURAL AND A PROUD ADVOCATE FOR THOSE WHO WERE ONCE ONLY DISMISSED AS OUTSIDER ARTISTS. TOGETHER, THESE TWO PIONEERS INVITED BRITISH VIEWERS TO EXPLORE SOME OF THE WORLDS MOST ASTONISHING ART ENVIRONMENTS.

ARTISTS INCLUDE THE INDIAN LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT NEK CHAND SAINI (1924-2015), THE FRENCH MULTI-DISCIPLINARY RECLUSE CHOMO (1907-1999), THE GRAPHIC VISIONARY ST EOM (1908-1986), THE RETIRED PRIEST AND HERMIT ABBÉ FOURÉ (1839–1910), THE GERMAN CARPENTER KARL FRIEDRICH JUNKER (1850-1912), THE SELF-ORDAINED MINISTER AND HOUSE-PAINTER WC RICE (1930-2004), AND THE ALL-AMERICAN PREACHER HOWARD FINSTER (1916-2001) WHOSE DIVINELY- INSPIRED ARTWORK WAS MADE FAMOUS BY TALKING HEADS.

THE BROADCASTING OF JOURNEYS INTO THE OUTSIDE IS SIGNIFICANT, NOT ONLY TO THE RISE OF ALTERNATIVE ART PRACTICES IN BRITAIN, BUT TO THEIR INCLUSION AS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF OUR VISUAL CULTURE. THE INSTALLATION IS COMPLEMENTED BY ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE ENVIRONMENTS AND THEIR MAKERS, TOGETHER WITH REGULAR SCREENINGS OF THE SERIES AND A FILM OF NEK CHAND BY THE MUSEUM OF EVERYTHING.
