Ten artist commissions respond to the wider contexts of the Covid-19 crisis.
As we face the emotional, physical, economic, psychosocial and other consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, and consider new ways of being in this time of global crisis, the notion of community and care is more pertinent than ever.
Autograph commissioned ten UK-based visual artists – Mohini Chandra, Poulomi Desai, Joy Gregory, Othello De’Souza-Hartley, Sonal Kantaria, Ope Lori, Dexter McLean, Karl Ohiri, Silvia Rosi and Aida Silvestri – to create new work responding to the wider contexts of Covid-19, looking closely at their immediate environments.
The interdisciplinary artworks they produced represent thoughtful reflections on changing conditions of existence, inviting us to think about what it means to be human and to care for one another.
Using primarily photography and video, the artists reflect both carefully, critically and often very personally on the impact of the pandemic, exploring ideas of loss, family, home, belonging and diaspora while considering different lived experiences, and the inevitability of change.
The artists’ work will be brought together for the first time in this group exhibition at Autograph’s gallery curated by Renée Mussai, Mark Sealy and Bindi Vora.
