Here Comes the Flood

Euroart Open Studios Group Exhibition

Euroart Studios, Tottenham, London
03 - 05 June 2016


It all begins with a parable. Imagine the Old Testament God had decided to send a great flood to wipe out the immoral and vice-ridden people of Tottenham. In the guise of a sort of 21st century Noah, curator Daniel Barnes is charged with the task of building an ark and saving the artists. And, as per Genesis, he takes two of ‘each kind’ of artist so that, when the waters clear and the panic subsides, art history may be repopulated and restarted in the promised land…

And so the artists shall be exhibited two by two. There is an aesthetic logic and conceptual rigour to the pairings: on the one hand, two artists have been paired because they are superficially similar; but on the other hand, they contradict and juxtapose one another, entering into dialogue on an artistic theme, idea or method. It all ends with magic.
