> DESCRIPTION
For the exhibition Flaneurs, four artists were invited to begin a dialogue with each other concerning possibilities that might engage the contemporary flaneur. The artists - Gul Cagin (Turkey), Jon Flack (US), Shaun Gladwell, (Australia) and Gustav Hellberg (Sweden) - all of whom have conceptual linkage with the idea of the observing stroller through society, were asked to develop work for this show and further to establish common crossover points, shared perspectives, etc and from that, to establish between themselves how the viewer might encounter and engage with the exhibition, as an act of flaneurism themselves. Each artist has arrived at a different location with different modes of transport - collages by Cagin, painting for Flack, video and drawing for Gladwell, sculpture and video for Hellberg. Although not necessarily encountering a specific city the works allude to a general perceptual experience of movement through the world.
