That Sinking Feeling

ARM at Bankley Studios & Gallery
Navid Asghari, David Rogerson, James Moss

PV Friday 27th April 2018, 7pm – 9pm,
Exhibition continues Saturdays & Sundays 12pm-4pm until Saturday 12th May 2018

A free public installation of film, sound and sculpture from contemporary art partnership ARM, testing new methods for collaborative working.

That Sinking Feeling is a collaborative installation that dives into the soup of our current predicament. It seeks to reflect the relationships we have with this reality, the artefacts we create in our pursuit of progress, and the confused emotional state we find ourselves in. Combining film, sculpture and sound, the exhibition favours a lyrical approach ⎯ to use the vernacular of internet memes: ‘That feeling when… you realise you’re in the middle of a slow-motion apocalypse and you haven’t done your homework.’

ARM are a group of artists and producers working together in sound, image, digital technology, installation and research. From 27th April 2018 they will exhibit their new mixed media piece That Sinking Feeling in Bankley Studios’ first floor gallery space. arm.parts/

Beautiful Women With Depression

The exhibition is about contrasts. You see an attractive woman strolling through town, wearing designer clothes you automatically assumed she has everything you want: status and wealth and happiness. It's often far from the truth.
Western culture blows up our superficial side. Were all superficial- its our instinct when it comes to appearance. It's down to the individual to cognitize that.
In the paintings glossy magazine cuttings are set next to scribbles and crude brush strokes. I find mass media imagery as beguiling as I do poisonous. The collage and other materials make up narratives. Some are intentional others are accidental.
