Borrowing the title from writer Gary Younge's book with the same name, this exhibition reflects on the way in which our identities can be defined by bureaucratic systems devoid of individual stories.

About

Nottingham-based artist Chiara Dellerba, has created a wall drawing which grows out of one of the oldest methods of identification – fingerprints. Dellerba extends her images from the fingerprints, through hand drawn pencil lines, and in doing so, she strips the fingerprint of any bureaucratic and judicial meanings. Each pattern develops organically with the drawings, overlapping and merging with the others, metaphorically questioning the complexities who we are and whether it should matter in today's society.

 

All welcome.
