Nilbar Gures & others @ Drawing Room

20 September 2018 - 11 November 2018

From the Inside Out is a group exhibition of female artists who employ expanded forms of drawing to navigate a passage from personal experience to the outside world. The exhibition explores the capacity of drawing to convey the complexity and diversity of female experience. These artists utilise the immediacy and directness of the drawn line to document experience, lived or imagined, giving form to memories and private thoughts. Taking inspiration from literature, popular culture and folklore, the artists use drawing to tell stories about age, sexuality, gender, the domestic and politics. The works incorporate assemblage and collage, testing the boundaries of drawing as it merges with sculpture. Traditional craft techniques, such as embroidery and quilting, are employed as a conceptual strategy with which to explore the construction of female identity. Exploring states of being, both interior and exterior, the artists: Nilbar Güreş, Marie Jacotey, Athena Papadopoulos, Emma Talbot tell stories that are as personal as they are universal.
