Motion Sickness Project Space | NOW OPEN
MOTION SICKNESS & FRIENDS | PROJECT SPACE IS NOW OPEN
This summer a new exhibition space is opening in Cambridge in collaboration with the Lion Yard. Launching on 22nd August, Motion Sickness Project Space will be an artist-led gallery space located on Petty Cury, in central Cambridge. The new gallery will be a chance to see contemporary art from emerging artists.
The project space will be led by local art collective Motion Sickness. The group is made up of three Cambridge School of Art alumni, Denise Kehoe, Eleanor Breeze and Arabella Hilfiker. Motion sickness, by definition, is caused by a disparity between perceptual movement and sense of movement. This disorientation is mirrored by Kehoe, Breeze and Hilfiker’s status in life in contrast to where society dictates they should be. Thus, the collective aim to explore and satirise society’s view of ‘millennialhood’. The ethos of the group is to be unabashed versions of themselves. They vow to defy sleekness and be human in the age of unreachable expectation.Roger Allen, Centre Manager of Lion Yard comments: ‘We are delighted to be supporting local artists within Cambridge, offering the centre’s spaces as a platform to display up and coming art. The launch will be a fantastic opportunity to view local talent as well as inspiring creativity within the area.”
Motion Sickness Project Space’s inaugural exhibition is entitled Motion Sickness & Friends. Featuring five artists alongside the work of Motion Sickness, the exhibition features work from different corners of the Cambridge art scene. The squad comes from Wysing Arts Centre, Gallery 9, Cambridge Artworks and the Cambridge School of Art. Having joined forces to stick a fork in the toaster of the Cambridge Art scene, the group present you with an exhibition celebrating emerging millennial art. Finally – millennials have managed to secure a slice of Cambridge real estate! Well, at least their art has.
Expect to see the concerns, questions and preoccupations of the so-called ‘Me me me generation’ of Cambridge in an exhibition of fun and bright multi-disciplinary practices. Motion Sickness & Friends will present a nod to 90’s pop culture nostalgia, examine the link between digital ethnography and our personal relationships, the conscience of our capitalist and materialistic behaviours, and our delayed childhoods vs. our desire to be kids again.
THE GALLERY IS OPEN FRIDAY – SUNDAY 11AM – 4PM – FREE TO ENTER!
