Immersion Immersion focuses on Helena Manfordâ€™s connection to nature and exploring the representation of emotions she feels when immersed in it, utilising visual and auditory senses in her moving image piece. Manford also explores the connection nature has with itself, looking into the microscopy of plants to show the communities and life at even the smallest level. The artist utilises diptychs to allows audiences to draw parallels with the world we see and the world beyond our naked sight.

Delving into the practitioner’s own past, Souter’s images take the viewer on a fragmented journey, drifting through snippets of time and space. Her dreamlike photographs move between past memories and being present. Objects, places and silhouettes of the body are presented as visceral experiences whilst the poetry incorporated into the body of work, adds to the memories and feelings created from the broken bond.

Suburbia Emily Carson is a contempory practitioner working primarily within the photographic medium. This work focuses on the implied human presence in homes during the early 2020 lockdown. Her work is instilled with the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi; the belief that nothing is perfect and nothing is permanent, that bad times will end and time will continue to march on.

Displayed through still and moving photography Stuart-Smith endeavours to depict a trace of the self through interior and exterior spaces. The work persistently yearns for exterior spaces, yet becomes entrapped inside due to the rupture of illness, encompassed by the presence of the self.

No Life I Know to Compare with Pure Imagination Paige Broadhurst’s work is an exploration of the boundaries of our imagination. In No Life I Know to Compare with Pure Imagination, the artist focuses on the highs and lows of life through photographic prints, glass prints, a modern take on a photogram and an edible installation. All of these elements combined and produced an immersive pop-up show, provoking audiences to think about the limitless possibilities of our imagination, yet how we have to ground ourselves once in a while due to the temporal and fragile nature of life.
LIZZY LALE TOLLEMACHE

Saudade In Saudade, Lizzy Tollemache focuses on themes of identity, nostalgia and displacement. The body of work is an exploration of place and belonging, attempting to visualise and make tangible the all consuming sense of detachment and unfamiliarity through having such an ambiguious heritage. Through a mixture of still life, landscape and physical artwork, she forces an anthropological gaze inwards, examining where and what it feels like to be at home; seeking sanctuary in scenes of trailing shadows, light reflections and nature. Unable to make sense of her emotions the title’s ambiguous translation from Portuguese expresses the ‘melancholic longing or nostalgia’ for her past and unknown history.

Out of Line In this current political and social climate, we get an encroaching sense of the world being more authoritative and constricting. One of the hallmarks of the contemporary landscape is the use of architecture to purposefully steer and regulate behavior. A street railing circumscribes how we interact with our environment. Lines and markings on the ground dictate and regulate our movements. But yet, we are never completely aware of the soft and tacit power these objects have over us. In Out of Line, Isaiah Cheng concerns himself over such â€˜structures of obedienceâ€™ and challenges our understanding of these everyday objects, presenting them as subjects for heightened and alternate contemplation.

Well, Whose Fault Is It? Harry Russell looks into the deeper themes of art in order to tackle existential ideas on human experience by centring all of his projects on a specific aspect of it. Well, Whose Fault Is It? is a departure from his earlier work focusing on self-reflection, observing the world around him to find cues which represent the concepts of isolation, loneliness and independence. This series seeks to be poetic, and hosts no people in order to communicate these themes to the audience.

Child’s Play Jodi Whitehouse’s project Child’s Play tackles the established ‘rules’ and identity of photography. She mixes mediums to abstract her images with a childlike freedom by juxtaposing the sharpness of monochromatic photographs with the vibrancy of paint and digital manipulations. The project explores how we view the world differently and how colour, sound and texture manipulates our perspective of finer details normally overlooked in photography and the everyday.

Elizabeth’s project is an exploration on the ‘bridge’ between life and death, representing personal experiences and the interpretation of the unknown. Death is nuanced through the conceptual approach to Elizabeth’s work using alternative process methods to produce one off prints. This gives an essence of fragility and materiality reflected in both life and death. She uses colours as a symbol of decay and regeneration; showing the light and dark side to this topic. She does this through the use of still life, landscape and portraiture, where Elizabeth uses photography to create visuals for the unknown state of death.

Sunless Chamber Megan Rose Jarvis focuses on the pivotal times of the Second Industrial Revolution. Her atmospheric photographs capture the spaces of a sunless chamber where man has stripped the natural land and replaced it with steel trees, stone rivers and electrical vines. This led the economy into a long depression as man replaced nature with industrialisation and industrialisation replaced man with machines. Vital connections from the past to the present are made as industrialisation continues to destroy our lands, forests and oceans; inevitably taking its toll on humanity as the threat of the climate crisis looms.

Disjointed Continuity Disjointed Continuity explores capturing moments of the model which are unknown to the viewer whether they are natural or performed for the camera. The photos taken are like stills from a moving image - both the images and the accompanying moving image plays on this idea of perspective. The moving image is disjointed but still continuous, the jump cuts tell us that time has gone by and we're now observing the model at a new moment in her day. Viewing an image is personal and the interpretation of the work is left open; the viewer will never know if the model is acting or simply being watched in their natural state.

No Access No Access captures the foundations of a new build, temporarily paused due to the coronavirus lockdown.

Utopia Utopia is a project by Samantha Bache showing Brutalist architecture and vibrant colours coming together. Brutalist design is renowned for being the ugliest architecture form and Bache added colours to the concrete to make them more appealing and fun. Exploring the eras of the 50s - 80s, Bache fell in love with pop art and the vibrant colours. Bache uses thermal heat colours in her photographs, such as pinks and oranges to depict the temperature of concrete, indicating the harshness of the concrete aesthetic.

After the Things of Nature Venturing into the abstract and intangible, After the Things of Nature pays homage to metaphysics, a branch of philosophy which explores existence beyond material reality. Through uncovering a world filled with new possibilities, the work acts as an investigation in the space-time dimension, examining the process of transformation and our relationship with the cosmos. The strange textures and vibrant saturated hues create an alternate vision of nature where imaginary constructs are made manifest and images begin to transcend their original contexts. Through this amalgamation of past, present and future states, a sense of timelessness is evoked.

Much of her photographic practice explores mixed media approaches such as paint and drawing.

Curator’s Note This exhibition draws inspiration from the everyday dissonance of being, simply the exposure to our fragmented and temporal world. 61 artists geographically grounded in the South West of England concern
themselves throughout this exhibition with a plethora of core values that are integral to being human. Over a range of mediums and contexts, this show invites audiences to
experience and discover the joy of that brief encounter with works of art. Repositioning discourse into the contemporary, the show majorly exhibits reactions to the mundane everyday; becoming a Sense of Being.
