The premis behind the Escape exhibition was to bring together and unify all the different facets within the notion of “Escape”. Whether it be a physical or emotional escape. An urgent flee or a daydream in your head there are a number of ways to explore these escapes and what they mean to an individual.
The verb ‘To Escape’ conjours up negative connotations of escaping the clutches, running away, fleeing, breaking away from or avoiding the negative. This exhibition challenges this and culminates in a body of work that is all part of an uplifting journey.
Each of the pieces in the exhibition has been chosen due to their represention and link to some form of Escape, whatever it may be. Whether it be escaping the rain, escaping the city, or finding escapism in your dreams, this exhibition will take you on a journey and let you escape, if just for a while.
