MILITARY POSITION/SPASMOSLOP @ State of Decay - 10/09/11


CHAPMAN & BAILEY GALLERY - JOINTHASSLES & HELEN HUGHES - STATE OF DECAY

10 September – 1 October

A group show curated by Helen Hughes & Harriet Morgan
Opening Saturday 10 September 3:00-5:00pm

STATE OF DECAY looks at the literal and metaphoric concept of deterioration within life and imagery. The ever-impending feeling of both existing and ending, and the effect we have on the all the elements that go together to make the world we live in. The artists involved all differently communicate this aesthetic or ideology, displaying their thoughts on decomposition, mortality, decay and adverse experimentation within their visual and audio practices, whilst also simultaneously communicating how a human might feel, operating on a day-to-day basis- within this decaying and rotting earth.

STATE OF DECAY embodies the conscious & unconscious impact of living, the outcome of death, the emotional mindset associated with it all & the visual effects that fading, ageing, rotting, wear, time or hand can have on an image and the mind.


The exhibition runs from 10th September to 1st October 2011

Stewart Cole / Marco Fusinato / Mark Groves / Blake Hesken / Christopher L G Hill / Luke Holland / Tom Miller / Harriet Morgan / John Nixon / Alex Vivian
