JABBERWOCKY: and other nonsense in the here and now
13-18 March 2018
Private View: Thursday 15 March 6-9pm
‘This exhibition is inspired by Lewis Carroll’s ‘Jabberwocky’, one of the greatest examples of nonsense literature. The poem’s impressive use of fictitious words and abstract imagery masterfully illustrates a scene of childhood fantasy, in which the monster lurking dangerously in the shadows is finally eliminated. While the narrative itself remains mysterious, the action of overcoming a great evil is undeniable. It is Carroll’s creative reframing of threat and danger through his bewilderingly-named creatures that has elevated the poem to such acclaim.
The show includes a myriad of contemporary messages about playing with fantasy in order to comprehend reality and to defeat menace. This encompasses two-dimensional and three-dimensional artworks (painting, photography, print, mixed media, installation), as well as video/film and performance, all of which may be political, personal or as nonsensical as the poem itself. With the poem as a focus, artists convey impressions of today’s Jabberwocky narrative both figuratively and in abstract forms, drawing from playful and serious perspectives.’
