This forthcoming exhibition of works by five artists with very strong and idiosyncratic styles confronts the viewer literally with art you don't see every day. Curated by Kymberly OâCarroll-Fitzpatrick, the pieces on display delve into a world of the weird and wonderful at a first glance, yet on closer inspection reveal solid conceptual foundations addressing issues of gender, social acceptance and belonging. The works on display take the viewer on a journey from Pop Art to the baconesque, the abstract, lost and found objects and to the politics of cross-gender. This is a bold choice of works that will throw up a lot of questions on how the contemporary artist evaluates and sees our world.
Daniel Barnard: Next to his house was a piece of broken board which had: "TRESPASSERS Wâ¦" on it. When Christopher Robin asked the Piglet what it meant, he said it was his grandfather's name, and had been in the family for a long time. Christopher Robin said you couldn't be called Trespassers W, and Piglet said yes, you could, because his grandfather was, and it was short for Trespassers Will, which was short for Trespassers William. And his grandfather had had two names in case he lost one. Trespassers after an uncle, and William after Trespassers." (Winnie the Pooh)
