“Taste the difference” – an exhibition curated by Loess Collective

TASTE THE DIFFERENCE

50 Celebration Avenue, Stratford, London E20
PV Thursday 26th January, 6pm-9pm
27th January – 16th February 2023
Open Wed-Sat 12-5pm

Loess collective presents “Taste the difference”, a satirical and playful show, referencing the space’s former occupant – Sainsbury’s.  A play on words with the supermarket’s luxury food brand, the exhibition title plays subtle reference to the different nationalities, backgrounds, and ideas of each artist.

A mixed media show comprising painting, sculpture, performance, installation, and multimedia curated by Evie Banks, Margherita Ghella, and Susana Lopez. Discover the subterranean world of Stratford with sculptures which take inspiration from the underground pipelines in site-specific contexts or indulge in sensory awakenings through interactive installations playing on emotional memory activated by scent. Join us for screenings of sound and film works investigating human relationships to invasive species connecting to our relationship with human migration.

This exhibition is brought to you by artists from Goldsmiths Masters in Fine Art, and Masters in Curation, with the support of HYPHA STUDIOS, and made possible by Get Living.

Portfolio

Selected By

Artist Celia Hempton and Get Living

Celia Hempton (born 1981, Stroud, UK) is currently included in British Art Show 9, (touring), and My Life in the Metaverse, curated by Dr. Omar Kholeif, Manarat Al Saadiyat, Abu Dhabi.  A monograph has been published this year by Phillida Reid with accompanying text by Amia Srinivasan.  Her work has been included in many institutional shows, including ICA Boston, Whitechapel Gallery and Serpentine London, as well as Performance Space New York, Gwangju Biennale, Art Night with ICA London, amongst others. It is held in the collections of the Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellin, Colombia, The British Council and the Government Art Collection, UK. 

@hempton’s work explores concepts of voyeurism in the post-digital age. In her paintings, performances and installations, she investigates the blurred lines of comfort and consent; desire and subjugation, visibility and opacity; seeking to deconstruct the ways in which we engage with each other in a rapidly evolving age of hyper-mediation. Formally, Hempton’s paintings, which range in scale from intimate to life-size, acknowledge the tropes of history painting and the often subjugated female body. Hempton’s richly layered paintings directly play with and confront this historical dynamism, producing tactile celebrations of the body, alongside multiple perspectives on how the bodily gaze is constructed.
