While the 13 exhibited artists, hailing from Norwich to Japan, cannot be described as Iconoclasts in the traditional sense of the term, they are all driven by an 'iconoclastic' or destructive urge, which manifests itself in the experimental and often destructive ways they produce art. Expect to see a myriad of unusual mediums and forms on display, from crow feather sculptures to portraits knitted from wool.
We are particularly looking forward to seeing Maurizio Anzeri’s vintage photographs garnished with embroided patterns. Inspired by his Italian fishing heritage, the embroidery adds a third dimension to his photographs, offering an arresting juxtaposition of textures and colours. Thomas Maeilender’s images of branded human skin promise something teasingly provocative too.
Iconoclasts: Art Out of the Mainstream is set to offer a stimulatingly relevant perspective on experimental practices today – prompting us to reconsider how art challenges social mores.
