The context in which Richie Moment’s (b. 1984, Folkestone, UK) physical work sits is incredibly important.
2017 is an exciting time to be an artist. You can have a high level of control over this context through different media formats and outlets without sacrificing integrity. This cannot only create a lead into your work, making it more accessible but also creating something for the work to have a conversation with, just before it slaps you in the face only to kiss it better. Hi-octane videos act as self-promotion whilst highlighting anxiety’s within the Art world. This plays off print and photography work that speaks to the viewer at a different volume but with no less punch.
Richie Moment, India Mackie, Adam Shield, Gabriella Boyd, Jack Burton, Anikó Kuikka, Martin Groß, Jessy Jetpacks, Jonathan Kelly, Sam Austen, Fani Parali, Sebastian Jefford and more
New site-specific works responding to a Grade-B listed industrial space in Glasgow’s historic Barras region. CHUMMING is interested in the culture a space inhabits and the group show as a model for artists to cross over, further exploring new levels of discourse and engagement, both in and out of the gallery.
The exhibition sparks a relationship between the artists, audience and place, while accompanying events include unique happenings with local musicians and filmmakers, informed by open source action and exchange.
Supported by Glasgow International and the Royal Academy of Art.
