About the Exhibition -
Every Second Feels Like a Century
Curated by Hannah Presley and Debbie Pryor
Featuring: Alterfact, Vito Bila, John Brooks, Sarah Mary Chadwick, Nicholas Hovington, Angela Thirlwell, Adam Ridgeway, Jasmine Targett.
Every Second Feels Like a Century is the exploration of an Apocalypse in our modern world, a world where now more than ever, we know that utopia is born from dystopia. We are collectively aware of the two extremes and the atrocities involved as many of us live between these dichotomies; fearful at once of both privilege and poverty. We relive our past in our attempts to move forward through struggles for equality of gender and race and the fight for environmental and political rights. We live in suspended time. Objects illustrate our journey, our history, our transience, our permanence, our story.
Apocalyptic; A drive towards survival – political, personal, environmental, emotional. Remnants of ideas, tools and thoughts scattered throughout cultures and time illustrate a universal desire, a race against destruction.
