Exhibition of works by seven emerging artists from the three MA courses at the Colchester School of Art, many of which explore the theme of fragmented identities.


This exhibition consists of graduating students from three postgraduate courses that have been part of the Colchester School of Art since 2008: MA Art, Design and the Book; MA Contemporary Art and Professional Practice and MA Sculptural Practice. The seven emerging artists transform the intimate spaces of The Minories into portals to imagined histories, migrations, organisms and fairy-tale worlds.


The theme of fragmented identities resonates throughout the galleries, showing that the fertile research environment at The Minories encourages dialogue and exchange of ideas. Many of the works presented here reflect an acute engagement with environments and surroundings as well as with personal experience. Through explorations of identity, the works respond to themes such as memory, gender, history, and ancestry, many taking the form of restaged past or contemplations of what the future might hold. These works are deeply thoughtful and striking in equal measure. Walking around the exhibition invites the viewer to join these makers in their quests to examine questions relating to representation, antecedents, family and gender. Many of these works serve to reveal the interstice between history and memory, the communicable and the incommunicable, and reality and fiction.
