About

In the wake of our referendum to decide whether the United Kingdom should remain or leave the European Union, a number of promises were broken, facts were ‘clarified’ and statuses changed. On one hand, the leaders of the majority party resigned following their success, while on the other we’ve seen the UK economy prove itself more resilient than predicted, as new trade deals are negotiated from around the world. A nation divided as opinions formed, leading to a vote that has arguably changed the landscape of UK politics forever. Campaigns offered us a better life in return for our vote. Post-Brexit result, voters are bearing witness to the lack of integrity from both Leave and Remain campaigns. Critical points that swayed the public to either side have somewhat dissolved, leading to greater uncertainty surrounding our nation's future.

Three months on, the conversation is still raw. A second referendum is proposed, and campaigns continue to argue against the decision, all whilst MPs tackle the looming issue of Section 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.

Dizzy Ink presents an exhibition reflecting on the time spent after Brexit. Hindsight is beautiful thing: what opinions do the public now hold about the campaigns, the vote and the effects following the referendum, Three Months On? Through a series of workshops, curated submissions from both voting demographics, and their own designs inspired by informal conversations, the walls of QUAD’s Extra Gallery Spaces will become a display of artwork reflecting our nation’s divided beliefs. The exhibition will be an evolving entity, as submissions from around the Internet flow from an E-printer within the space.

Using a single-colour printing method associated with official political applications, named Risograph, as well as the powerful lobbying method of wheat pasting posters directly to a public wall, the space becomes a mutual challenge of opinion. Our collective aim is to have the space continuously develop over the duration of the exhibition as it perpetuates the debate.
