‘Where is the life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?’ – T.S Eliot
The aim of the group is to capture a reflection of sentiment and values through the fusion of old and new. The juxtaposition of abandonment and regeneration allows for a new lease of life. Within this arena the unlocking of individual creative responses are revealed through the layers of time.
The groups intentions are to create exhibitions which captures the essence of the space or place and its legacy of wherever it may be. This will be achieved through individual and thought provoking responses with an underlying synergy amongst the works. The work will be reflective, considered and mindful of the past, present and future within the broader context of its community.
‘Our duty is to preserve what the past has to say for itself, and to say to ourselves what shall be true for the future.’ – John Ruskin
