artists & participants
Taking place every five years, the British Art Show is the most ambitious survey of new and recent developments of art in the UK. Touring to just four cities in the UK, this is the first time the British Art Show has been seen in Nottingham.
A wide range of work can be seen at Angel Row Gallery and Beatties shop on Mount St, just around the corner.
Adam Chodzko’s M-Path invites visitors to literally ‘put yourself in someone else’s shoes’ and experience the exhibition as perhaps they would, whilst Siobhán Hapaska presents a tropical idyll complete with real sand, fake palm trees and a lurid sunset, where paradise is not all it seems.
Film and video works in the exhibition include Breda Beban’s haunting Walk of the Three Chairs, set in Budapest, and informed by the artist’s personal history, as an exile from the former Yugoslavia; documenting his attempts to become an animal, Marcus Coates’ Finfolk features the artist emerging from the North Sea in ill fitting sportswear and clip on shades, the embodiment of a human seal; whilst Doug Fishbone uses imagery downloaded from the internet accompanied by a witty and often outrageous commentary, in Towards a Common Understanding, to, as he says “turn the vulgarity of our society’s freely available visual language back on itself”.
Created especially for Nottingham, Neil Cummings and Marysia Lewandowska’s film Dragline, features archive footage from the Media Archive for Central England.
The complete list of artists featured at Angel Row and Beatties are Philip Allen, Tonica Lemos Auad, Anna Barriball, Breda Beban, Marcus Coates, Adam Chodzko, Doug Fishbone, Neil Cummings and Marysia Lewandowska, Siobhan Hapaska,Richard Hughes, Roger Hiorns, Mark Leckey, Ivan and Heather Morrison, Rosalind Nashishibi, Nils Norman, Matthew Houlding, Toby Paterson, Public Works, Paul Rooney, Eva Rothschild , Mark Titchner, and Gary Webb.
