Exhibition: Our Plastic Ocean – Mandy Barker @ 20-21 Visual Arts Centre
Apr 11 @ 10:00 – 16:00
Exhibition: Our Plastic Ocean - Mandy Barker @ 20-21 Visual Arts Centre

Our Plastic Ocean, by international award-winning photographer Mandy Barker, addresses the current global crisis of marine plastic pollution. Barker collects debris from shorelines across the world and transforms them into powerful and captivating images. This exhibition is the first major touring retrospective of her work.

At first glance, the images are reminiscent of sea creatures and corals suspended in the dark of the sea. However a closer look reveals them to be made up of footballs, fishing nets, cotton buds, coffee-cup lids and other ocean debris. Barker highlights the plastic pollution now ubiquitous in our seas. Currently, 8 million tonnes of plastic end up in the world’s oceans every year, and if these trends continue, our oceans could contain more plastic than fish by 2050.

Our Plastic Ocean is an Impressions Gallery touring exhibition curated by Angela Sheard.

Exhibition: TRUE TO SIZE – Heather Phillipson @ 20-21 Visual Arts Centre
Apr 11 @ 10:00 – 16:00
Exhibition: TRUE TO SIZE - Heather Phillipson @ 20-21 Visual Arts Centre

True to Size is a bold, colourful journey through seven sculptural vignettes that combine online culture with ideas of fantasy, emotion and care.

The exhibition features mass produced materials, such as large printed emojis and teddy bears with sound and video animation in a series of fantastical and furry sculptural narratives. In one scene, a bear wearing a pink ball gown climbs a set of cardboard steps, and then emerges triumphant from emoji flames. In another, a bear has cut itself in half with giant emoji scissors.

True to Size by Heather Phillipson was commissioned in 2015 by the Arts Council to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Arts Council Collection. As only the second time that this unique touring exhibition has been displayed in its entirety, this really is a rare opportunity to view this work in full.
