WAYS OF LOOKING

Following their Transition 2017 project Personal Proverbs And Put-Downs, Ali Corder and Elizabeth Loveday present a project-based exhibition this summer in the Studio.

Similar to their Transition week, this new work aims to be an interactive and evolving project, with paintings, textiles and objects that explores gossip, proverbs and Chinese whispers.

“We will begin to explore the way we see ourselves, others and the way we portray ourselves to the world, the show will run in three parts, one informing the next.”

See Read More below for details.

PART ONE - THE DEVIL’S TRUMPETERS

From the proverb, ‘gossipers are the devils trumpeters’ we will explore and make work about gossip, tittle-tattle, Chinese whispers and outright lies. We will be sharing personal experiences and inviting people to leave their stories and feelings on the subject.

PART TWO – THE MASKED PARADERS

There is a Japanese proverb that suggests we all have three masks, one we keep for ourselves, one for those close to us and one for the world. We will be exploring these ideas and questioning that nowadays their may even be a fourth from the emergence of social media, a ‘living my best life’ mask.

PART THREE – THE NARCISSIST’S DRUMROLL

We will be looking at our own narcissistic traits and neuroses, and the way we bang our own drum. These days, we spend a long time looking at ourselves and our personas online and selling ourselves to each other, but to what end? What do we gain and what do we hope to achieve with these often, unrealistic personas?
