“I was not allowed to grow properly…” A lack of autonomy is a struggle for some people and this can be a mental, physical and social predicament.
‘Walls’ is an atmospheric and immersive microcosm. Chloe Wing’s songs and paper cutting installations depict psychological cages that are confessional like a diary. They deal with themes such as self-consciousness, anxiety, alienation, frustration, the psyche and memory. Cut out installations contain hidden thoughts, and veils obscure the human physicality in order to create a space where music and words are at the forefront.
Community is a place where we feel we need to belong. Where age, gender, identity, ethnicity and appearance play a huge part in our everyday views, judgments and interactions. These classifications can be uninformative and segregating. Wing’s works are humane, cathartic and psychosocial, highlighting the influence of history and conventions upon the mind and emotional/ mental health.
The exhibition is free with a limited number of works for sale.
This exhibition runs from 5th Feb – 1st March. Chloe Wing will open the exhibition with a performance on 11th Feb.
Please note: This exhibition will closed from 10am-4.30pm on Saturday the 8th Feb.
