HIDDEN WORLDS

HIDDEN WORLDS

14 July - 16 July 2018

The Adelphi Hotel, Liverpool

 

Launch night: 13 July, 5PM – LATE. ALL WELCOME.

 

Exhibition: 14 – 16 July, 9AM – 9PM

 

 

For Independents Biennial 2018, artist group Unio Collective is showing six individual projects of new work in response to the central question of Liverpool Biennial 2018: Beautiful world, where are you?. Together, the artists interpret forgotten or unseen details hidden inside the ordinary of the everyday.

 

Projects:

 

Jamie Sinclair Digging Out
 

This project deals with ageing and deterioration of health. The photographs are a portrait of Brendon who suffered with myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) and hoarding disorder.

 

Karolina Konior Residents and Rooms

In collaboration with a British prison, this series of photographs explores the impact of imprisonment on inmates and raises questions about stigmatisation and mainstream representations. The work interprets ideas of confinement by considering the longing for freedom in the absence of small, everyday choices.

Azimah Zain Freedom

Raised in Singapore, freedom in nature is something Azimah has yearned for since she was young. These landscape photographs show restricted land in the Cairngorms as featureless expanses to question the politics around privately owned land and the ‘right to roam’

Mark Epstein A Hungarian Rhapsody

This project presents an intimate portrait of the love story of a Hungarian couple named György and Ágnes. Through photographs, audio, text and objects, this work presents an archive of two immensely rich cultural lives that cannot help but peep beyond the Iron Curtain that Communist Hungary placed around its citizens.

Nikki Culley Things Outlast Us

This series of photographs shares the experience of getting to know two people through the memories attached to things. The work looks at a collection of objects belonging to a Merseyside family who were traced through old postcards in a junk shop.

Chris Gleave Title TBA

Combined with specially written work from Brian Patten of the Liverpool Poets, this project considers the inner world of dementia sufferers and its inaccessibility to loved ones. The work will show portraits of dementia patients and their families at Memory Lane support group in Liverpool.

Community Artworks Hidden Liverpool

All ages and levels of photography were invited to visit the restricted, disused underground Dingle station and abandoned car garage in collaboration with Williamson Tunnels. Attendees learned the history of the disused station and discovered rows of abandoned cars in the darkness with hand lamps and cameras. Photographs taken by attendees will be shown.
