Press Release
CITED:C2749Y pin-points plurality, bringing the twenty-two artists’ individual practices together in a great mass of happenings, connections and contradictions. Working together as a strong studio community, the idea of the collective rings loudly throughout the show, as dialogues between the works are built and broken: Enormous brightly coloured forms command immediate attention whilst the ephemeral whispering of neighbouring sculpture refuses a definite presence. Pyschogeography film draws the viewer into an intimate journey whilst optical illusions leave the viewer suspended. Immersive environments are created through light, sound and impressive four wall projections. Other works create a thick sense of nostalgia, relentlessly pulling the viewer back through the years and into private memories. Sound pieces transcend space entirely, expanding always to elsewhere.

CITED celebrates both order and disorder, searching for, exposing and refusing links between works. As individual artworks come together within the show, the artists collaborate to create an accumulation of their developing contemporary practices. CITED witnesses the end of a communal beginning but is certainly, in no way, final.
