MISALIGNED - AirSpace Studio Exhibition 2016

EXHIBITION
August 12th to 27th, 2016


MISALIGNED is a showcase of new work from the AirSpace Studio holders, which explores constructions and compositions, processes and procedures, rules and rituals. We live in a world full of structures, ones we can see and ones we cannot. But what happens when these are challenged? What sort of world do we find ourselves in?

Misaligned features work from: Chloe Ashley, Emilie Atkinson, Kat Boon, Kyle Cartlidge, Kornelia Herms, Joyce Iwaszko, Jenna Naylor, Peter R Smith and Sarah Thorley.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For Misaligned, the AirSpace Studio Artists will consider the notion of structure, questioning the variety of connotations that are associated with the idea. For some of the group, this relates explicitly to their surroundings. Architecture, nature and the objects that inhabit our immediate environments lead to a consideration of material structures and how these can be challenged or subverted within the artists' practices. Alternatively, other members of the Studio regard structure as a reference to the abstract, or systems that are implemented within our society. These range from frequently questioned and scrutinised political and social structures, to the immaterial data and technological structures that have dramatically transformed our existence.

Ultimately, this group exhibition aims to examine the assortment of structures that inhabit our lives, observing the methods in which we often misalign from these constructions and configurations.

The AirSpace Studio Group is a vibrant and diverse group of artists from across Stoke-on-Trent, who make their work in the studios of AirSpace Gallery. They work across a broad range of mediums, including photography, painting, installation, drawing, performance and sculpture, but come together to explore shared themes and exhibit in spaces across the city and further afield. In 2015 they exhibited alongside the British Ceramics Biennial in the former Spode Works with the group exhibition Assemblage. Misaligned is their second exhibition in Airspace Gallery’s main space.
