Riddles in the Dark - downstairs at Artspace
From Tuesday 8th October - Saturday 12th opening 2pm - 8pm
Riddles in the Dark
Is a first group venture who are into half way through part time Contemporary Arts Practice MA course at Coventry University exhibition by four local post-graduate students:
The well- known basement at Artspace in Lower Holyhead Road, Coventry is a fascinating venue and provides an interesting environment for the four artists to react to. Each person will be bringing a unique response to the dark and somewhat dank interior that has been used in the past for film locations and for rehearsal space by members of Coventry bands the Selector and The Specials
Each artist brings some of their latest, most current work to the exhibition along with some developmental 'work in progress' for the show. There will be drawings exploring self and identity, two dimensional work addressing human reactions to technology, 2D/3D work generated on metallic substrates exploiting oxidisation and reflecting the physical body and fear, collated elements, documents, images and a 3D piece based on personal reflection on a series of medical interventions.
There will be a number of impromptu performances during the week, all against the backdrop of this dramatic location and supported by newly created 'soundscapes'.
