Geoff Leong joined forces with artist-curator duo Vanya Balogh & Cedric Christie plus a new team of multi-talented artist curators, to support this non-profit exhibition featuring over 100 artists in the circular 20,000 Sq ft multi storey Q-Park car park beneath Cavendish Square. This year, the show also includes a marble sculpture by Andy Elton in the gardens of Cavendish Square.
Sarah Sparkes invited each artist to make a life-size three dimensional portrait of themselves as a toy. The works will be displayed collectively as 'The Hollow’; Pascal Rousson gave an open brief to artists he thought would think in a challenging way in terms of sculpture installation; Cedric Christie felt that the idea of inviting in an artist, Bernd Kaiser, to curate a group of their contemporaries without relationship to the other curators would bring a different energy to the whole project and an energy between the works; Roger Clarke selected artists spanning film, photography, sculpture and installation, whose work he thought would sit well both in the particular context of this space and each other; Alice Herrick chose artists with a sense of the curious in film, photography, sculpture and installation, most of whom have exhibited at Herrick Gallery; Rebecca Scott selected her artists for an interesting dialogue with the interior of the Car Park, focussing on sculptural / fabricated works relating to Rebecca’s own practise. Vanya Balogh invited artists with his son Eddie, by playing a game of pulling names randomly out of the curatorial hat & giving Lady Luck a chance to decide on the outcome. Mark Woods approached artists known & unknown to him, appearing disparate as a group, so that they could not agree. Tracey Moberly selected her artists & photographers in part based on their challenging socio-political responses to any given brief along with their unique design insights.
