As part of SNAG I exhibited mixed media photography work, and in my work I am asking;
ARE WE LOCAL TO EACH OTHER
WHAT IS IN-BETWEEN US ?
A journey to quest the importance of continuously redefining our roles in each others lives. It is about the connections made between us every moment, and the conception that marks, and emphasizes from these connections. In order to understand and explore what it means to be human and every person's desire to truly define who they are. As we all seek our answers outside of ourselves, then maybe it is actually within. We’re actively creating and recreating that journey of discovery, in hopes of building a community with a greater awareness of each other for the purpose of human connection as well as the power that lies within and behind that hope.
This is an ongoing project…
Stoke Newington Artists Group (SNAG) are a group of multidisciplinary artists from Stoke Newington / Hackney who formed in 2009, and meet regularly to discuss their practice, drawing inspiration and ideas from each other. In this, their first collaborative exhibition, SNAG explores the theme of ‘Local’ and has invited other artists from a variety of disciplines to join them through their investigation into ‘Localness’.
'Local' was be the first exhibition took place in Karin Janssen Project Space.
