Comprising paintings, sculptures, installations, and video art, 'Little Explosions' brings together artworks from some of the artists in residence at Bomb Factory South.
Having a physical studio space for these artists has been a determining element of their practice - the studio is a crucial first space of creation for artists, which is often a quiet and hidden space. Through time and process, all the small waves of thoughts and gestures from the artist are transferred to the art in the studio. However, after the artwork has gone through its process and left the sacred and private space of the studio, it will no longer be in the control of the artist and their subjectivity, which means the art becomes its own independent entity.
Bringing together various artworks out from their private spaces into the public, the diverse art pieces in the exhibition, each with their unique wave of thought and aesthetic, are creating 'little explosions' and provocations, revelations, ideas, and conversations.
The participating artists are:
The Bleaq Collective
Andrew Pierre Hart
Hee Jyung Kim
The exhibition coincides with 'Open Studios' at Bomb Factory South on Saturday 14th May, where the public are invited to visit the artists’ studios between 11 am - 6 pm. Full details here
