Ritual is an immersive exhibition featuring the work of six artists who explore a range of mediums, including painting and ceramics. As winners of the Willesden Gallery Curatorial Open Call 2023, the recent Newcastle University graduates unite in their aim to evoke contemplation and introspection, encouraging visitors to explore their connection with time through observation of the natural world.
The artists consider ideas of deep time, trying to conceptualise its enormity by bringing it to a human scale. The exhibition’s title ‘Ritual’ reflects the ways that humanity breaks up, and measures time. As well as the cyclical rhythms that characterise nature. By examining aspects of their immediate environments, each artist contemplates the connection between time and nature, employing a diverse range of techniques to convey their own unique interpretations.
Willesden Gallery invites the public to experience this captivating exhibition which will be on display from 1 August to 1 September. Join us in this reflective exploration through the lens of each artist.
