The show brings together a group of seven artists who all left their home countries or places of familiarity to pursue an MA in painting at the RCA. Their paths lead them to each other and they ended up finding a creative community of similarly displaced people in a new and challenging environment.

About

As an exhibition, /ru:t/ aims to rebuild a network of scattered individuals who’s origins lie in separate geographic roots. The artists form a peninsula of community through shared otherness, connecting through difference of homeland and culture.

The experiences of the artists are reflected in a larger body of people who transit through London, plugging into expanding diasporic networks. The works shown in this exhibition reflect the artists’ lived experiences, affect, politics of diaspora & their homelands, human condition, experience of assimilation to host country culture, emotional responses to migration, sanctions and racialised experiences.

The exhibition holds up a mirror to find yourself in others, and explores the influences from a multitude of cultural value systems that have been carried into our current urban spaces through generational histories. 

Artists:

MATVEI MATVEEV | JOSEPH AINA | JIWON CHA | TRISTAN GITTENS

ANASTAZIE ANDERSON | FANG WANG | YUXIAO WANG
