A group show curated by James Brown, Misha MN and Tram P. Nguyen.
Pretty Vacant Cells is a communal offering to the spirits of cinema and art; a celebration of performance, artistic vision and realization. This group exhibition showcases the work of cutting edge young artist's that is infused with the sensibilities of the esoteric religions, neo-punk, undefined sexuality, the avant-garde and personal liberation.
Within the cells of Deptford's disused police station, these exciting new practitioners explore a wide variety of approaches, ranging from moving image to illustration to public performance. The selected artworks are a celebration of life and vitality, working together to form protagonists in a narrative about metaphysical struggles with the entropy of existence.
The international selection of practitioner's all offer a wildly different approach to this narrative. Vietnamese artist Tram P. Nguyen will be presenting her two part video series centred around intense, personal experiences, while Misha MN will be taking over an entire cell that shall focus upon his divine Nouveau Punk aesthetic that encompasses pop culture, religious iconography and spiritual anarchy.
