Chaos of Vision
Riverside Café Gallery, Farnham Maltings

Matthew Pang & Lucy Turner
Tue 07 November – Fri 01 December 2017, Riverside Café Gallery, Farnham Maltings

Curated by Catinca Malaimare and Anna Garrett

‘Vision gives back more to reality than it is given.’ Brian Massumi, ‘Parables for the Virtual’, 2002

The experience brought forward to the public does not intimidate, nor provoke desire but encourages a sense of play to come to terms with the language of your surroundings. Both works generously address the dual space of one’s own and one of shared communication, where observers are inclined to engage intimately with the work, interaction encouraged and worlds fragmented, hackneyed processes and subject matter reinvigorated.
Woman in a bath, reflections at night. An enduring image, a slap in the face.

The experiential conditions linking both practices incite a constructed voyeurism into the artists’ worlds. The viewer becomes the performer of a show on the excess of seeing and visceral materialities.
Querying the constructed social environment and bringing art into the public realm, the show will explore two venues that also play a disruptive role in their own surroundings, Riverside Café Gallery, Farnham Maltings and Black Box project space, UCA.

Matthew Pang (b.1988, Scotland)
Matthew Pang attended Gray’s School of Art, where he completed his BA in Fine Art. He completed a Masters in Painting from the School of Fine Art, graduating from the Royal College Of Art (2017). His practice makes use of the first person point-of-view as a means to avoid categorisation. Perversely, his intention is to achieve this through reinvigorating what may seem to be hackneyed processes and subject matter.
Pang was the recipient of the Dewar Arts Award (2015) and The Basil H. Alkazzi Award (2015 – 2017).

Lucy Turner (b.1986, Scotland)
Lucy Turner completed her degree in Sculpture and Environmental Art at Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 2008. She received an MA in Interactive Media in Arts from Arts University Bournemouth (2013) and is currently studying MFA Fine Art at Goldsmiths, University of London. Turner’s interest lies in the promise of private experience amidst the public chaos of quotidian media.
A selection of shows includes SEEP, Veneer Gallery, Inside Art, Southbourne (2017); Present Past, SIX Gallery; Coexist, Lighthouse, Poole; The Future of Fantasy, Arts University Bournemouth; (all 2016). Lucy Turner was awarded the Paradox Fabric Travel Bursary in association with Caja Granada, and she is a board member for BEAF, Bournemouth’s largest independent arts festival.
