The Lotus Eaters of Homerian myth, lost in a world of consumption, victims to addictive highs?
Aindrea Contemporary launches its fourth and final exhibition of 2018, The Lotus Eaters, showcasing seven, early-career artists whose work responds to these ideas through painting, animation and installation.
The Lotus Eaters is a group exhibition, curated by Aindrea Emelife, exploring consumption, commodity, thrill and pleasure seeking using the tale of the Lotus Eaters in Homer's Odyssey, JG Ballard's High Rise and the Freudian Pleasure Principle as literary and philosophical curatorial access points.
Featured artists include Luke Burton, Scarlett Bowman, Harriet Fleuriot & Sarah Cockings, Jane Hayes Greenwood, Sarah Roberts, Hannah Tilson and Meng Zhou.
