Chasing the Ineffable

Opened June 25th, 2021 View 3D Gallery
Poster image for Chasing the Ineffable

Statement:

Humans construct meaning based on experience. The sum of our experiences and feelings, in other words, the phenomenological understanding result in art as the metaphor that expresses an intangible part of existing.
This room explores the notion of the ineffable, that which is incapable of being expressed in words, by looking at the intangible nature of existence. Elusive concepts such as emotion, trauma, light, darkness, addiction, memories and the realm of the subconscious mind seek to be visualized through 3D scans, sculptures, photographs, and video pieces.
In this sense the work presented in this room is not attempting to decipher the mysteries of the world but to potentiate them through contemplation of the concrete forms through which they appear. Words are limited, experience is infinite. Here, the work is not used not to name but to suggest; a vehicle, rather than an answer to the unknown.

Nostalgie

Maria Blaga

Nostalgie is an experimental essay film about storytelling, nostalgia, identity, and home. A visual poetic meditation bringing together a grandfather’s archival footage and personal documentation depicting family relationships both to each other and their surroundings which are rooted in childhood memories.

CITY CONSTELLATIONS, 2021

Amina Onitilo

City Constellations is a visual enquiry exploring the lack of natural star light and abundance of artificial lights in the city. I’m interested in how these artificial lights contribute to the obstruction of natural light, and can become a replacement for stars in the mind of the city dweller.

A video instillation in the form of a box revealing city lights turning on and off at night.

Journey to the Right Mind, 2021

Anna Janberga

Journey to the right mind is an experimental and narrated short film revealing a personal and subjective perspective on the subconscious state of mind, also called the right mind. By visualising dream like, abstract and surreal elements in the form of moving image, the aim for the film is to evoke the unconventional thinking mind and to let the viewer wonder in its blissful state as viewers are induced with calming, slow paced and symbolic visuals. The film reveals two sequences, a visual difference between the leG brain- which is represented through the use of black and white effect showing quiet, mundane and monotone shots that are imitating the everyday ‘boring’ life; and the right brain which reveals a visual collage of colourful, joyous and etherial shots emphasising the connection with everything around us, in a slow, fluid pace.

A video piece made by the artist revealing the journey from the conscious to subconscious state of mind.

To Much love, 2021

Charlie Tothill

To much love is a visual representation of how drink and substance abuse diminishes quality of life. The artist explores past and recent trauma's including his decent into madness in the hope that others will relate to this and seek help.

חיים טובים (a good life), 2021

Jack Lumer

“THE BEST REVENGE IS TO LIVE A GOOD LIFE” חיים טובים is a project that is intended to be an homage for a brighter future, it’s a project about forgiveness as a way to let go of anger, without forgetting, it's a project about the celebration of a good life. This project started when I found a box of photographs shot by my great-grandfather pre, during and post World War Two. Like the rest of my family he was Jewish and he had to escape Italy during the war and find refuge in Switzerland. I felt I needed to get closer to my family's history.

Becoming A body, 2021

Samuel Zhang

Becoming A body explores self-identity and representation related to sexuality and sex with concerns of bio politics which come from the artists journey pursuing an ‘ideal’ body. The more the body performs, the further it gets isolated from a contradictory ‘fact’, which Deleuze describes as the relation of the figure to its isolating space as shown in Bacon’s painting. Using eight boxes as an installation and one moving image Sublimation (2’16’’) The journey ended up with the second stage as it functions therapeutic self-healing that is spiritually lifted, transforming and transcending the body to an abstract and shapeless flux.

Subliminal Experiences in an Unconscious State, 2021

Yasmin Newnham

This work raises awareness for mental health and disorders such as autism and dementia through conceptual film. I hypothesise that through talking about our anxieties and traumas we wouldn't have to face them in our sleep. This work aims to be a conduit for discussion about mental health. My visuals are deliberately abstract with the intention of the audience to struggle to understand what it is they are viewing. I want the imagery to converse the anxieties and traumas that we face which is then translated into out nightmares and sleep paralysis.

Taja Boodie

164 is an archival project, but deeper than this is discovering while processing grief and understanding how we interpret things in absence. Seeing Jean as this matriarchal figure made me yearn to know more about Shirley. What happened to the family after she was gone? Astrological lineage began as the strongest continual theme, as the fact our birthdays are within the same week was a large inspiration for this project. This began to take a backseat rather quickly, perhaps not so strongly binding us together as much as things I have discovered we had in common. The function of the family is discussed particularly in my writing throughout the book, in relation to the structure of the family unit and the relation between motherhood and womanhood. contact: tajalewisb@gmail.com

OI is a culmination of my recent practice and research into Pan-Africanism and healing. With roots in West African spirituality (specifically those native to Yorubaland) and contemporary cross-continental Black culture, I have created a 3-part 360 video viewable through VR. Existing as a contemporary capsule of the collective Black experience and working through the trauma related to visualisations of Black people historically and contemporarily. The project seeks to forge a virtual safe space in which Black people of the diaspora can discover and explore healing, away from the imminent trauma and dangers posed by existence in a multitudinously racist & biased society.

Quotidian - Body, 2021

Joseph Baker

Quotidian is a photographic enquiry into the everyday as an extraordinary essence. The resulting trilogy of digital books stem from Jennifer Anna Gosetti- Ferencei's philosophical theory of the quotidian and develop from a figurative observation of everyday objects to an abstracted representation seeking to capture the emotion of an idea.

Self Destructive Jelly #1, 2021

Timothy Cheong

Timothy's body of work functions as a symbolic release from self-destructive behaviours which began with a personal journey of anger and the repression of emotions. Using various mediums, such as textiles, sculpture, performance art and photography to explore different aspects of anger, this projects draws attention to the importance of accepting our negative emotions, and how learning to accept these emotions instead of repressing them can lead to a healthy way of releasing them and to a better relationship to ourselves and the people around.

To Come To Mind, 2021

Alexandra Wansell

To Come To Mind is an experimental work exploring the imperfections of memory. It looks at the way memory becomes attached to objects, in particular objects that are ‘souvenirs'. I chose a selection of objects that, individually and collectively, hold significant memories for me which I can recall through looking at or holding the object. These objects are gifts and items I collected whilst travelling. Together they act as a representation of important moments in my life. Replicas of the original objects are created. This process is my attempt at reinforcing the memory associated with each object. By recreating that object I'm constantly stimulating the memory connected with it.

164 is an archival project, but deeper than this is discovering while processing grief and understanding how we interpret things in absence. Seeing Jean as this matriarchal figure made me yearn to know more about Shirley. What happened to the family after she was gone? Astrological lineage began as the strongest continual theme, as the fact our birthdays are within the same week was a large inspiration for this project. This began to take a backseat rather quickly, perhaps not so strongly binding us together as much as things I have discovered we had in common. The function of the family is discussed particularly in my writing throughout the book, in relation to the structure of the family unit and the relation between motherhood and womanhood. contact: tajalewisb@gmail.com
