Private view : Thursday 21st November 6 - 9 pm
An NYC exchange, a choral commission,
& an artistic re-connect
'Connect', a Fabelist exhibition at A-side B-side Gallery, 21 - 25 November 2013
‘Only Connect’- Howards End
This Fabelist Group show takes its theme from E.M Forster’s masterpiece in which one of the central characters explains that "all respectable people say ‘I’." In a digitalised commercial age of instantaneous connections and consumer satisfaction, it is becoming increasingly difficult to say ‘I’ as a prefix to ‘want’. In doing so we have become detached from our own identities and those around us.
In Connect, eighteen emerging and established artists, writers and musicians explore how artistic creation can re-connect us to our lived experience of the world.
Between the 21st and the 25th November 2013 the gallery space will resonate with interweaving visual and auditory dialogues of installation, painting, music, spoken word and sculpture which, invite the viewer to engage with the sensuality of creative expression.
Central to the exhibition will be exclusive new multi media work created during a six month writers and artists exchange project with the tART collective in New York and a specially commissioned piece of choral music by young composer Eunseog Lee.
Fabelist is an interdisciplinary platform for contemporary visual art, writing, performance and debate, founded by its director Francesca Goodwin in 2011.
Projects generated by the collective have been featured at The Serpentine Gallery Project Space, Rivington Place Gallery, Grays Antiques, The Arch Gallery, The Other Art Fair and The Box Park.
