Exhibition

FreeThem

Exhibiting Artists: TR853-1 (TraseOne)

Venue: Utterly Art 229A South Bridge Road > venue details

Dates: 16 Jun 2011 - 26 Jun 2011

FreeThem addresses a socio-political issue of a hovering overpowering entity and the need to break away from the abnormality of systems by stepping out of comfort zones. In this latest series, an interventionist approach is employed to suggest to the viewer that life should not be constrained by boundaries and restricted space.

The artist depicts himself as a puppet governed by others and not himself. But the quest for freedom sees him breaking away from whatever controls him through the red strings. He breaks free, negotiates and intervenes with his surroundings to escape from a dull, white environment.
