01/04/2012 - Review of The mind was dreaming. The world was its dream in The Visual Artists News Sheet

The Visual Artists' News Sheet CRITIQUE SUPPLEMENT, March – April 2012
Review by John Gayer Click here to read

'Dreams typically take us into the realm of wonder, horror, or a mixture of both. They leave us feeling elated, pensive, gasping for breath, or shortchanged when we wake...'The mind was dreaming. The world was its dream' reminds viewers of these experiences by immersing us in a series of parallel realitites, each one curiously out of sync with our own..In the memory, dreams exist as visual fragments, their relevance typically remains unclear. The images in this exhibition allow the viewer to revel in the processes of remembering and deciphering. This adds up to a highly rewarding experience.' John Gayer

29/10/2010 - Review of 'Dig Down in Time' at MurmarArt

MurmurArt Dialogue – Two reviews of 'Dig Down in Time' by Ausra Linkeviciute and Olivia Nairn. Click here to read.

'The archive might be the starting point for the seven artists presented in Dig Down in Time, but perhaps the strongest element which unites their work and overcomes the viewer is that of magic. Whether appropriating found imagery or creating an archive of their own, the artists forge new narratives moving from the real towards the metaphysical...Most of the works in Dig Down in Time could be viewed as if existing in some sort of alternative universe. The forgotten or overlooked social artefacts are resurrected to a new life - that which is unsettling and above all magical. ' Ausra Linkeviciute

Venue: Man&Eve Project Space, London


Participating Artists: Isha BÝhling, Eames Demetrios, Jorge De La Garza, Pippa Gatty, Susan Hiller, Susan MacWilliam, Larissa Nowicki.

‘Dig Down in Time’ brings together the work of seven artists for whom the use of the archive is central. The articles that constitute an archive – the documents, photographs, recorded testimonies or ‘material proof’ – form the basis of the works within this exhibition. Whilst some of the artists within ‘Dig Down in Time’ use the contents of an archive as a starting point from which new works are created, others use them directly to reveal untold narratives or raise further enquiries. The materials used by the artists in the exhibition are varied, drawing from archives that are personal, official and fictional.
