Between the Lines

14th November – 5th December

Atom is very pleased to announce this exhibition of prints, paintings and wooden structures from two exciting and original artists. Each takes a very different approach to their work but the subject matter of simple and intriguing interlocking abstract shapes is shared by both. The other characteristic they share is a deep respect for their chosen materials and an almost obsessive attention to detail. This promises to be a very interesting exhibition…and good fun to look at too!

Disturbance is an all female exhibition chosen to run up to International Women’s Day on Sunday 8th March.

‘Disturbance’ draws together work from 8 artists. Using different media: sculpture, video, photography, installation, painting, text and performance; the artists take conventional objects or images and disrupt them. Though not necessarily driven by a feminist agenda, all the work is underpinned by a feminine perspective.

Painter and curator Paula MacArthur has carefully selected this group of artists both for their alluring and unsettling imagery; and to convey the disturbance thrown up by the complex negotiations facing artists engaged with female identity today. ‘Disturbance’ ranges from painter Susan Sluglett’s lushly painted floral bouquets which have been trashed and trampled, Hermione Allsopp’s ‘re-made’ sculptures which push at the boundaries of attraction/repulsion and ideas of taste, to Mitra Saboury’s surprising and sometimes visceral films.

The exhibitions showcases high quality work by contemporary women artists, not espousing a particular feminist line but working within their own practices creating art which moves from the subtly subversive to the overtly challenging. There is humour alongside serious questioning of norms – all combining to provide a feast of visual excitement.
