Opening The Aviary
20th October – 27th November ’21
Wednesday – Saturday 11am- 4pm
Opening the Aviary is a multimedia exhibition inspired by a set of drawings created by Jon Adams over the covid lockdown. As an artist who champions the flourishing of neuro divergent practitioners through his organisation, Flow Observatorium, Adams’ own work as a neurodivergent artist, draws on an internal dialogue which finds sharp expression on the page. Into this conversation come three other artists to engage in thoughtful conversation with Adam’s work. Prudence Maltby, also drawing from an internal space of memory and trauma, converging around shared experience, ‘I have flocks of birds in my head’ her work diverging again to express its own personal narrative, and Kate MccGwire whose sculptural contribution powerfully makes present this dialogue, manifesting that internal tension in work simultaneously seductive and repulsive, fluid yet static, dangerous yet safely encased.
A short animation by Rosa Beiroa introduces us to all of the works on show, articulating the words of William Kentridge which make tangible the creative process for all.
