Ever find yourself in fraught conversations over “conceptual” art? Are you of the, ‘I could have done that’, ilk? Education, education, education... but what are students learning at art school today?

About

Flac Group have selected the best of 2016’s London Art and Design graduates who will intrigue you with their innovation, skill and wit. Combining experimental literature, digital materials, printmaking and sculpture, this show reveals how language, memory and privacy might be experienced in the 21st century.

If the landscape could speak, what story would it tell? Katharina Dettar asks you to become aware of your surroundings, juxtaposing seemingly harmless homeware and jewellery with the unseen raw materials wasted during their production. Minami Wrigley creates fictional landscapes from the Pacific Northwest, ‘stitching’ together areas from various trips. Does the process of etching become the act of re-experiencing and re-constructing the landscape? Or perhaps it enables time travel?

Beth Elen Roberts explores the past through a subjective language of wooden objects, these multiple components invite you to re-read their history. This contrasts with Molly Richards’ celebration of digital ephemera and meme culture; where the word is art and even an email can become a virtual performance.

Nervous about interacting? Let anonymity liberate you as you enter Simeron Kaler’s modern day confessional. You are encouraged to speak your mind, capturing the moment where language, meets personal memory. But be careful, Michael Crossan is watching you! Adopting slow and traditional sculptural processes, he approaches the digital through the physical, examining how contemporary surveillance affects our notion of privacy.
