WHAT’S ON

Suturing

A group exhibition featuring students from The Cass.
6 – 8pm Wednesday 3 April 2019

4 – 10 April 2019

In the traditional sense, suturing evokes the surgical notion of stitching skin, muscles or other tissues. In film theory, the concept often describes a process of identification between the viewer and a character, or a ‘world view’ represented by the film. This provides multiple areas of exploration in the drawing context, expressed in various media for this exhibition.

Here the work of art constitutes a suturing in the moment of creation – the joining of aesthetic elements – and in the moment where it is exposed, in the suture between the object and the space, and in the moment where it is observed – the suture between the object and the observer. Suture can unstitch or infect, and the whole process gain entropy — but this is where fascination lies.
