And then we Pulled the Worlds Apart

City:

Young Arnolfini, Black Kettle Collective (Glynn Vivian Gallery, Swansea) and Ikon Youth Programme (Ikon Gallery, Birmingham) present a collaborative exhibition that explores language.

Three teams of emerging artists have been granted free reign of the space, with no rules or restrictions. Each artwork is conceived and delivered collectively, and explores the cross-pollination of styles, mediums and approaches.

The exhibition, through installation, film works, live performance, textiles and sculpture, investigates the nature of collaboration as a creative process and the role that language plays in these relationships.

“The artists started by asking how we, as humans, come together as groups - be that through stories, journeys, rituals or play. They kept returning to ideas around language and how it links humans in an invisible way. Within this exhibition the groups decided that they wanted to play games with these themes, using storytelling as a device to study group identity, whilst pulling words and symbols apart to think about how they could act and speak collectively.” 

                                                                                            Ben Thomas, Programme Assistant

The exhibition will include flags emblazoned with encoded meanings, tents covered in mistranslations and a ‘language allotment’, from which audience members are invited to sew stories throughout the city. Audiences will be able to interact with the exhibition, as the artists explore their ideas via workshops and discussions.

On Saturday 4 July, you are invited to meet the artists, take part in all-day workshop events in the gallery.
