Metamorphosis: Fine Art Exhibition in Pictures

Metamorphosis: Fine Art Exhibition in Pictures

 

The last art exhibition, hosted by The Tunnel, titled Metamorphosis, was a great success in that it was professionally curated by the artists involved, it attracted guests in an area in London where we haven't displayed our art before and everyone was drunk on art (and others things) by the end of the night. All in all it was an exhibition that brought us closer together as a collective of artists and extended our curatorial experience as professional artists. A good night!

So, in case you missed it, the theme of the art exhibition was Metamorphosis, based on the novel by Franz Kafka. As artists we explored psychological and philosophical ideas regarding the self and our relationship to this self and with others. This relationship can be dynamic, ambiguous and even extreme. In the case of the novel, the character Gregor, actually physically metamorphosed into a terrible "vermin" and his body becomes a stranger to himself and his family. The story is narrated through Gregor, his mind and thoughts still very much intact and in-line with who he was before the change.

Without further ado, here are the pictures of the setting up and the opening night of Metamorphosis; an art exhibition inspired by Franz Kafka!
