Artists often have to work within an isolated environment, so it is refreshing to find those in a similar field, exchange ideas and share a common goal.
People who live and work in Brighton revealed their experiences of the sun and how it effects their lives. Eight artists have been using the different perspectives on the sun as starting points for their new work.
The exhibition will include sound, photography, film and video with changing displays every two weeks. Taxi drivers will confess what the heat inspires their passengers to do; dermatologists reveal the hours of research that go on in laboratories as we bathe in the sun’s rays; people who speak English as a second language recount their experiences and tales of the sun from memory and sea front vendors provide the tools of their summer trade, including sweat and tears for a new art.
Suntrap presents new works by Keith Ball, David Breckon, Sarah Hardy, Kate Meynell, Haroob Mullick and Anne Sobotta, Lisa O’Connor and Jonathan Swain. The exhibition will also give the visitor the chance to contribute their own experiences, placing objects into a Suntrap museum, add their favourite summertime hit to a play list and contributing their views to the Suntrap Magazine which will be published fortnightly.
Featuring David Breckon, Lis O’Connor, Jonathan Swain.
