Dovetail Joints present the exhibition 'DISTRACTION'
Curated by Bobby Benjamin an exhibition of original artwork by: Katy Cole / Annie O’Donnell / Sarah Tulloch, Bobby Benjamin, Connor Clements, Charlie Howard and Thomas Tyler
‘DISTRACTION’ is a collection of artwork presented by Bobby Benjamin’s nomadic exhibition project, Dovetail Joints, in response to the title theme.
The exhibition brings together practitioners from across the North to converse, engage and develop new work in response to a central thematic.
With a range of practitioners from different backgrounds, and at varying stages in their career, the projects aim is to produce and display a collection of artwork resplendent in its diversity yet tethered by a shared concern.
The exhibition features the continuation of a three-way visual dialogue between experienced practitioners Katy Cole, Annie O’Donnell and Sarah Tulloch (Platform A, New Bridge Projects), responsive to both the theme of the show, each others practice and a wider political climate.
This runs alongside individual explorations of the subject matter from mixed media artists Thomas Tyler and artist/musician Charlie Howard (Uncle Buzzard), installation artist and Dovetail Joints founder Bobby Benjamin (Pineapple Black, The House of Blah Blah) and architectural artist Connor Clements.
Through a plethora of visual styles and techniques, this group of artists have conducted a practical investigation which is both expansive and reflective, addressing subjects from the minutia of the everyday individual experience to the vastness of our worldly concerns.
