About the event
ASC studios presents exhibition ‘Small is Beautiful More and Less’ consisting of works of 30 artists, that imbue smallness. Located at UNIT 3 Projects, within ASC's Bromley-by-Bow Studios on Epsom Street. It will take place from 6-9pm on Fridays to Sundays from 16th June until and including 25th June 2017, or by appointment.
Curated by Jillian Knipe and Karolina Albricht, the exhibition is underpinned by economic theorist E. Schumacher's work. Displayed will be a collective of small objects and images to form a mass, though shine a spotlight and they disperse. Media includes; sculpture, painting, illustration and photography. Among the artists is award winning photographer Michael Donald.
Jillian Knipe, said “The exhibition creates a temporary community of artists to emphasise our fragility as individuals and strength as a group in the face of big party politics. The timing of this show couldn't be better. When it opens the election will have been decided and then begins the test to see if the governing party will deliver on its promises".
Amongst the artists, UAL graduate Sarah Christie presents ‘Library’, created around the EU referendum and how people voted in Ancient Greece. Sarah invited visitors to choose a potsherd, made from 150 cast bowls to offer their opinion on the historic event. The content on the ceramic pieces features a variety of languages, with content ranging from optimistic to fearful. Placed together, the ceramic pieces form a lasting record of a transformational moment in history.
Coinciding with the exhibition, ASC at Bow are opening 20 artists’ studios, presenting a rare opportunity to open up to local arts and neighbouring communities. The opening is taking place from 6pm on Friday 16th June until Sunday 18th June 2017, with free entry to the public.
