Intervention, an exhibition of over 30 contemporary artists (including works by Paul Insect, Mobstr, Aida Wilde, Peter Kennard & Cat Phillipps and Helen Bur) opens on Saturday 1st December 2018 in the gallery at East London’s new artist-hub and studio workspace: The Hackney Creative Social Club. A though-provoking and defiant fusion incorporating organisations such as The Shangrilart Collection and Bill Posters from Brandalism.
For the artist provocateurs featured in Intervention, the city is a stage and their audience are unwitting participants. Each exhibited work is in itself a game of call and answer: a charged signal sent out, yielding a visceral response from the viewer.
Dioramas of micro-citizens stopped in their tracks by splats of bird excrement sit alongside unsolicited public fountains, disruptive bus stop signs, fake recruitment campaigns, illegal golf ball traffic controls, pirate projections and a slew of subversive street art messaging. From the sardonic and confrontational statements of Mobstr and Edwin’s scrawled freehand slogans and drawings, to Carrie Reichardt covered houses of mosaics depicting Mexican-style Day of the Dead skulls and Dan Rawlings elaborate silhouettes cut from street signs in this provocatively playful collection.
