WANT SUM? It might be shite it might be magic

WANT SUM! It might be shite it might be magic

WANT SUM?… Is a site responsive arcade installation incorporating sound, sculpture, video and large format print works. The experience explores aspects of male desire and its violent and monstrous appetites, the flawed caprices of masculine identity and the exaggerated comic manifestations that this has on self definition and macho image projection. set against a broken soundtrack whose ambiance suggests aspects of his native planet, Thanet. Hampson takes us on a journey around the mutant alleyways of his mutant psyche. A repository of the unarticulated emotional flotsam and jetsam that lurk within.

Dirty Paradise

POP UP GALLERY DIRTY PARADISE ARE HOSTING THEIR THIRD EXHIBITION AT JOSEPH WALES GALLERY IN MARGATE, FEATURING 43 LOCAL AND GLOBAL ARTISTS. The name Dirty Paradise is inspired by the destructive and creative relationship humans have with the planet. As a gallery it exists as an evolving constellation of individuals and groups, presenting artistic practices of local and global communities.

Mixing the dirty and the pristine, the exhibition celebrates the importance of looking sideways, showcasing a marriage of artistic styles and approaches. The medium changes from person to person, from painting, photography, sculpture, installation, written word and performance. The aim, energy and attitude of each artist however is the same; make something, or make something happen.

This is a list of the artists involved in this exhibition

Fact: Everything I Once Knew

Fact: Everything I Once Knew

In this digital mediated age, we live our existences under intense accumulation of riddles and encoded information. The question arises, are we losing contact with our actual timed experience? How do our senses respond and how do we come to understand identity in the face of this experience? The exhibition brings together different approaches to exploring the contemporary play on imagery with the theme of encapsulated codes and readability.

The artworks bring an ambivalence to the exhibition operating against the continuous cycle of unknown imagery in contemporary culture. These images do not reject their input but hope to establish a point of which to observe this commentary on imagery, rather than exclude.

‘Fact: Everything I Once Knew’ brings together 6 second and third year BA Fine Art students at University for Creative Arts, exploring visual ideas around observation, identity , process, memory, senses, entropy and time.

DORIS DAY, BEN SANDERS, LESLIE FARAGO: SUNSET FLIP

PRIVATE VIEW SATURDAY 20TH OCTOBER 6-9PM ALL WELCOME!

Sunset Flip denotes a finishing move in the sport of entertainment wrestling where one wrestler acrobatically pins the opponent to the canvas. The sense that theater that unfolds during this sequence is something that Doris Day, Leslie Farago and Ben Sanders all bring to the walls and floor of Joseph Wales. Growing up in the 90’s, all three artists create an atmosphere within the gallery where analogue assemblage, fluro hues and industrial patterns capture an era of discovery and escapism. Paintings of retro wrestlers do battle with the bruised hinterlands with an over sized sketchbook. All the while those watchful eyes and collage limbs peer on, waiting for the moment of gravity defying drama of the sunset flip.
