BRITISH SUMMER TIME (BST)
Artists: Ewa Axelrad, Larry Achiampong, Alex Farrar, Joe Fletcher Orr, Rowena Harris, Jasleen Kaur, littlewhitehead.
Half mocking, half nostalgic British Summer Time, distils the allure and revulsion of that particularly British sea side summer experience.
From the conservative old folks of Bournemouth and the Isle of Wight to the wonderfully excruciating pleasures of Blackpool, South Shields, Margate, there is the tinny echo of faded Little Britain.
Surrounded by half wrought tokens of a forgotten empire, OAP’s wheeze in sweat drenched shirts to the pool side, just about surviving the sudden rain only to have ‘that nice foreign nurse’ resuscitate them as the sun beats down at midday and it all becomes too much.
We are an island nation…
This exhibition was inspired by the experience of receiving the news of the Brexit vote while stuck on the Isle of Wight.
