From the University of Kent, a group of second year Fine Art students under the collective name of Twenty14 present The Loft. An exciting exhibition showcasing their current practice and artistic development. From expressive paintings to explorative videos, robust sculptures to engaging installations, this show is truly diverse.
This collective has responded in distinct and varied ways to the broad and complex themes of Abstraction, Narrative, Contingency and Performance. Echoes of each resonate within the media, technique and theory.
The Sail and Colour Loft was integral to the success of Chatham’s Historic Dockyard. Despite its closure in 1984, the grandeur and history of the building are far from lost. It is the only surviving Sail Loft of its kind and the artist’s working studios. Their own personal history is now being written into the antiquity of this unique building, which provides the setting for The Loft.
Within the same exhibition is The Box From The Inside Out. Utilising the industrious shell of a shipping container, a small group of painters and sculptors exhibit their responses to the same themes. The works explore the effect on surfaces through a manipulation of mediums.
With a unique insight into upcoming art in Medway, this exhibition is one not to be missed.
