In June 2019 HContemporary will bring together a group exhibition of seven international women artists who are shaping a new dialogue from their subconscious thoughts, ideas and experiences. Their surreal, and often dream-like, journeys are presented here balancing the ordinary with the bizarre to re-enchant the world.
The seven artists in this exhibition have each drawn from their own experiences and memories to create imagery full of personal meaning. Their subconscious thoughts reference individual ideas, hoping to communicate them to the viewer. Exploring notions of vulnerability, invisibility, transformation and mystery, the diverse cultures of this multinational group of artists add another layer of context to the work.
Through the medium of photography and sculpture the artists have delved into their own lives and surroundings and made remarkable and/or beautiful discoveries. Improvisation is often key in the search for what was previously unknown. The viewer is playfully invited to consider new purposing of familiar objects, to explore the shadows and to consider new possibilities.
These liminal spaces between reality and the subconscious provide room to challenge hierarchies and to guard against the societal shackles that limit our vision. They are places where transformation can take place, thresholds to another way of seeing.
