Artcore is proud to present In Real Life exhibition with artworks by two artists in residence Tom van der Meulen and Maria Cepeda.
In an increasingly online sphere artists have considered how social media has radically changed our experience of the real. The residency aimed to question what does ‘real’ mean today? In Real Life examines the digital world as both an outsider and a participant, and focusses on distinctions between the real and the virtual. The exhibition seeks to open a dialogue on the uses of digital technologies, our growing addictions to mobiles phones and other devices, and the ways we present ourselves online. Through critically exploring how the curation of our online selves shape and redefine us and transform the way we interact with people and our environment, artists were invited to investigate two central questions:
- To what extent do digital art spaces democratise, educate and socialize the way in which our identity is consumed?
-How does digitisation democratise and affect artists’ identity by making art pieces accessible without time, money or location barriers?
Join us on Thursday 18th October for In Real Life exhibition launch!
Following the popularity of the five week Ceramic Course that ran through July and August, Artcore have decided to continue the course each Wednesday. The new series began on Wednesday 26th September and will cover pinch pots, slab pots, coil pots, sculptures, surface decoration, and throwing on the potter’s wheel.
