Adrift – The Unfamiliar and Familiar in Modern Society at the Gasket Gallery

The Gasket Gallery’s inaugural exhibition of ten photographers creates an incredible world view examining the way we see and interpret the world around us. I would have loved to spend time in this article pouring over each artists work, however this would end up being a critical essay.  This collection of artists from around the world have used photography as a way of exploring levels of perception, developing unique interpretations of modern society.

The work on display is harmonious and develops in the viewer a sense of sitting outside the world they inhabit and watch it being deconstructed and then reconstructed in a hypnagogic way. Each artist teaches us another way of viewing the world, highlighting our need to look closely at what we see and examine in detail what is in front of us in order to challenge what we see.

This exhibition is on for a very short time and will end on the 13th October, but is well worth seeing. The Gasket’s first exhibition is a collective of artists that redefine our concept of the ‘urban’, creating dreamlike spaces within a mundane, dystopian landscape.
