Imaginations in Isolation

24 March, 29 May - 29 June 2020

 

Imaginations in Isolation was an online and mail exhibition, focusing on developing a conversation of issues regarding the public sphere. The exhibition featured work around the theme of imagination, submitted from artists and people from all walks of life. During the covid-19 lockdown, many of us have taken up art projects whether for work, boredom or for fun. With this, art seemed to be a catalyst for everyone to unite despite the distance among us. Through the combination of mail and online, the exhibition aimed to raise questions about the future and accessibility - what we have now and what is neglected. Simultaneously, it endeavoured to bring exhibitions out of the institutional context and into domestic spaces, where the home transforms itself to a gallery space and back again.

The mail exhibition was sold for £10 (inc. postal fee) which proceeds went to Brixton Soup Kitchen (BSK) - a Brixton-based community space for the homeless, providing food, drink and legal support to those in need. During the lockdown, volunteers assisted marginalised communities through outreach programmes.

 

Accompanied with a set of instructions, Imaginations in Isolation invited audiences to curate their own exhibition at home during a time when public spaces are closed, whilst helping those in need.
