'Divergent' is an encounter with imaginative and conceptual possibilities.
Curated by Claire Bridge, 'Divergent' brings together artists exploring alternative realities and unique ways of perceiving. The shared environmental and societal challenges of our current age require a capacity to leap out and split away from the mainstream in order to explore news ways of imagining.
Sue Beyer deviates into an escapist fantasy world, moving beyond the digital glitch. Matt Greenwood’s lenticular image bends and distorts desires, invoking sensual responses to fleshy forms. In her sculptural ceramic bombshells that morph gendered mythologies with the horrors of war and the global environmental climate crisis, Claire Bridge explores the origins of bikini bombshell and the collapsing of female sexuality with destruction and gendered violence. Anna Kennedy dissolves relationships with time and space with her Infinity Loop, while Yuying Pang takes a performative approach to investigating her personal relationship with society, through evoking situational and contextual awareness.
