Watching Limbo launches a new artist collective and exhibition space Caraboo Projects in Bedminster, Bristol. Unpacking animation as both craft and concept, 5 artists take a playful approach to exploring its emotional, durational and physical possibilities.

About

'Watching Limbo' is the first exhibition launching a new artist collective and exhibition space in Bedminster, Bristol, featuring a group of artists from around the UK bringing new and recent work to Bristol, including film, painting, installation, sound and virtual reality. The exhibition unpicks animation as both craft and concept, whilst taking a playful approach to exploring its emotional, durational and physical possibilities.

Animation can be defined as bringing something artificial to life. Whereas once this suspension of disbelief was limited to the realm of celluloid, our relationship with screen based media increasingly defines us as social creatures and the relationship between a life lived and a life captured is blurred. This exhibition probes connections between print and screen, digital and virtual environments, whilst elements of the bodily, the tangible and the visceral resonate amongst the works on show.

Artists:

Jessy Jetpacks 

Kris Lock + Josephine Sweeney 

Olwyn Carroll 

Paddy Gould + Roxy Topia 

Vicky Smith 

The exhibition is curated by Jack Friswell and John O’Hare.
