This was a group exhibition with artists that all graduated from Slade school of Arts in London. The exhibition focused on the contrast between newly proposed ideas and old ways of doing/interpreting.

In this premise, the success of a “thing” is seen in that light, the contrast a measure of how much we recognize or don’t recognize the existing or old in the “new”.

And as these artists do not necessarily work together, with practices concerned with differing areas, the newly produced works connected, disturbed or amplified each-other, all the while expressly claiming their autonomy.

The works do connected with each other as well, according to Kianoosh Motallebi: ‘I believe that the works of each of these artists are very direct, their methodologies are outspoken. Perhaps not conceptually, but in the way the works function. I imagine the exhibition as ephemeral and transient; something that is translated into the artistic language of the works, the way materials are used, a fickle credibility, and an ever-present sense of failure that surrounds each work.’
