S Mark Gubb
Thu 01 Jan 1970 - Thu 01 Jan 1970
Gallery Opening Times: Mon – Sat: 10am-5.30pm. Entry is FREE.
Cardiff based artist S Mark Gubb presents a solo exhibition of recent works that include installation, sculpture, photography and performance. Drawing inspiration from the social and political culture he grew up with in 1980s Britain, he explores politics, history, religion and contemporary culture as platforms for communication and power.
By reappraising and re-interpreting particular aspects he draws out their inherent absurdities and inconsistencies, utilising references from rock music to cold war politics and the pop-up economy. Sculptures and installations will function as collaborative platforms from which a series of invited speakers and practitioners will operate over the course of the exhibition.
Throughout, Gubb aims to prompt discourse and invite reflection on our moral codes, our desire and ability to impact upon and change the world we inhabit, and on how the accepted facts of our time may be re-evaluated in the future.
