WANT SUM? It might be shite it may be magic
New works by MARK HAMPSON
A site responsive arcade installation incorporating sound,comic sculpture, animated video and large format print works. The gallery experience explores aspects of confused male desire and its violent and monstrous appetites, the flawed caprices of masculine identity and the exaggerated comic manifestations that this can lead to in macho image projection. Set against a newly created broken soundtrack whose ambiance suggests the moods, tensions and quirks of his native planet, Thanet. Hampson takes us on a journey around the alleyways of his mutant psyche, a repository of the unarticulated emotional flotsam and jetsam that lurk within. Expect loud, large and ugly.
Artist, Mark Hampson lives and works in Broadstairs, Kent. When he is not in his Thanet home studio he is Head of Fine Art Processes at the Royal Academy of Art in London. During his career he has exhibited widely and internationally with solo shows in museums and galleries throughout Europe, Japan, Korea, in the USA and here in the UK.
Please come and join us for the opening weekend with a private view launch party on Friday 27th September between 6-9pm
Gallery Open Thursday - Sunday 11 - 6 or by appointment.
