From 27 – 28 February 2016, new collaborative exhibition POMP shows at Safehouse, bringing together the work of established and emerging artists each exercising a diverse and distinctive approach to contemporary art. The launch and private view will be held on Friday 26 February, 6 pm – 8 pm as part of the South London Art Map SLAM Fridays event.

Set in London’s Safehouse 1 & 2, POMP comprises of work by artists Graham Clemie, Patrick Colhoun, Richard Ducker, Timothy Holt, Graham Hudson, Clare Mitten, Rebecca Moss, Catriona Robertson, Alice Steffen, Amy Stephens and Ben Woodeson.

These contemporaries challenge the viewer with the manipulation of familiar materials within their surroundings, asking questions, and perhaps making fun of, our relationship towards physical matter.

The works on show offer diverse approaches for appropriating construction within an artistic sphere, from two to three dimensions. The viewer is deliberately drawn into debate, is teased, and asked to judge as well as to navigate their way around a world in which boundaries are blurred, heightening our dependent bond to dexterity. Stemming from the historical values from the Young British Artist era in the late 1980’s, this multidisciplinary exhibition will bring these artists’ considerations on chance connections finely into focus.

Curated by Timothy Holt, Cat Madden and Amy Turnbull.
