Meg Andrew, Sherry McLane Violence SentimentaOpening: Tuesday 29 Janurary, 6-8pm Dates: 29 January-15 February 2008
Meg and Sherry have developed a unique and distinct language that doesn’t play around. Their work examines the relationship between silence and power; and in their first collaboration ‘Violence Sentimenta’ they push us towards the eternal, without giving in to easy consolation. Forget ‘Death and the Maiden’ and Renaissance Art, Freud’s theory of ‘Eros & Thanatos’ and the Aesthetics of Power and Religion. ‘Violence Sentimenta’ embraces all of them and simultaneously manages to go further. We enter a world of extreme, a world that is now and forgone, and a world that is yet to come.
