Throughout 2020 artists used their practice to make sense of what was happening around them. Talismans, Rafts, Mementos celebrates this rich vein of creative output representing both the psychological and physical artefacts that have surfaced during this time.
From deep exploration of isolation, trauma and struggle to gentle musings on just having a slower pace of life and time to explore personal interests, the work in this exhibition reflects the spectrum of individual experience.
Our director Amy Malin sums up the show – “2020 is a year that will undoubtedly be remembered for its dramatic events, and unforeseeable impact on our lives. The works can be viewed as a window into what has empowered us, what has kept us going and what we will remember or take with us into the rest of our lives. The works themselves becoming relics and mementos of an incredible time in our history.”
