Dreams of Everyday Objects
White Moose Gallery
Saturday May 26 – Saturday, July 7
White Moose, the contemporary gallery in Barnstaple, is continuing its five-year-milestone celebrations with another eye-popping thought-pricking exhibition. Dreams of Everyday Objects is a collection and celebration of ‘everydayness’ from a selection of artists who are anything but.
Dreams of Everyday Objects features artwork from renowned North Devon painter, Marianne Edwards; London based conceptual artist, Jane Hoodless and ‘Mangle’, a couple of Columbian artists creating intricate carved wood artworks.
White Moose have put these artists together as they are all fascinated by the ‘everydayness’ of domestic objects used in daily life.
By juxtaposing their work in this show, we are endeavouring to create a surreal feeling for the viewer, say the White Moose gang, challenging them, but also giving insights into the very different ways these artists work and put their ideas across.
The two Mangle collective artists, Maria Paula Alvarez and Diego Fernando Alvarez will be over from Columbia to set-up their work for the ‘Dreams of Everyday Objects’ and will be attending the Private View on 25th May, giving people a wonderful opportunity to meet and chat with them about their ideas and how they create their amazingly intricate carved artworks (the gallery has even lined up an interpreter to help communication on the evening).
Artists, Marianne Edwards and Jane Hoodless will also be in the gallery on Friday 25th to talk about their work. Definitely an evening not to be missed!
