(Un)done is an exciting group exhibition that introduces the work of recent MAFA 2023 graduates from Central Saint Martins. This eclectic cohort includes ALON, Charles Nyiha, David Koh, Duong Thuy Nguyen, Ellie Day, Gabriela Schultz, Haige Wu, Irum Rahat, Keer Zhang, Paula Parole, Paula Zvane, Rabiya Nagi, Rayya Khuri, Rianti Gautama, Vesper Alexander, Wen Shuyu, Yasmin Teniola Idris, and Zhenzhen Ma, who present a dynamic fusion of cultural perspectives from both within and outside the UK.
Coming together two years ago, these artists embarked on a creative journey marked by a fearless exploration of materials and concepts. Their collective pursuit has resulted in a diverse and thought-provoking body of work, encompassing paintings, sculptures, prints, photographs, videos, installations, and live performances.
Delving beneath the surface, these emerging artists navigate themes that are as diverse as their backgrounds. They delve into the realms of memory, cultural identity, the female perspective, corporal disability, and urban decay. Their art engages in a dialogue that spans snatched conversations, the blurring of reality and wearable sculptures, the aesthetics of violence, environmental concerns, urbanization, spirituality in both human and non-human forms, and the facets of modern life. Together, these creations weave a captivating narrative.
This extraordinary exhibition will be hosted within the unconventional setting of a former supermarket in Stratford, generously supported by Hypha Studios, a champion of positive social impact and change within local communities, harnessing the potential of vacant properties.
Curated by the talented duo of Gabby Zhong, currently pursuing her MA in Culture, Criticism, and Curation at Central Saint Martins, and Hyunah Kim, who is pursuing her MFA in Curation at Goldsmiths, (Un)Done promises to be an intriguing experience.
