Shoreditch Town Hall Basement is hosting a new group show – “A Gothic Story”- from 26th June to 6th July 2008.
Artists featured in the gothic-themed show include Wayne Chisnall, David Yates, Elizabeth S Clark and Oscar Murillo.
Commenting on the theme of the show Chisnall comments: “The term ‘gothic’ can mean different things to different people. For this show I chose to exhibit pieces that explore the term on various levels.”
For example, The City is such a detailed sculpture that it naturally invites the viewer to form their own narrative. Everyone draws their own story from it – from perceiving it to be a fairytale castle to worrying that it is a nightmarish prison.”
Curator and artist Teresa Mills says “Influenced by my own emotive thoughts and research on my French Huguenot and English silk weaver ancestry, I then opened that wider for other artists to come in and brought twelve artists together to tell a gothic story in experimental work in sculpture, film, photography and sound.”
