There are many amazing events coming up in Portsmouth involving our supporting organisations:
Between January and April, Aspex Gallery will be hosting TRANSFORMATION, their programme for winter 2020. This solo exhibition by artist Sarah Taylor Silverwood was commissioned by The New Art Gallery Walsall in 2019 and is presented at Aspex with support from the University of Portsmouth‘s Interreg EU funded PONToon project.
Sarah Taylor Silverwood’s exhibition Daphne challenges the way that historical story structures can shape contemporary social narratives and relations of power. Revisiting the myth of Daphne and Apollo, the film navigates the way Daphne is pursued by Apollo, eventually escaping through physical transformation. Here, the extended chase scene is retold and abstracted through the animation and pastel-hued installations, raising questions about voice, power and the body.
