Curated by Richard Priestley
A narrative may be drawn from the semi-appropriated, simulated organic forms of Sam Basu, Lolly Batty, David Burrows, Ian Dawson and Matt Franks which implies half remembered glimpses of utopia. To emphasise our mortal earthly existence, Priestley takes us to this portal; its both 'clunky and craftsie'. Animated works from Anthony Gross, Laurie Hill, Daniel Jackson and Milika Muritu to offer an extended glimpse of this 'otherworlds'.
Craft is a term which implies process, and is applicable to the artist. It connotes technological adeptness, and applies ironically to Priestley's space-craft, as well as summarising western aspiration towards desired technological advancement where the borders between science and science fiction are often blurred. 'Craft' is a term which alludes to the perceived esoteric control of the imbued role of the curator.
