> DESCRIPTION

Hoxton Art Gallery are pleased to announce The Pleasure Principal. An exhibition curated by Director Matthew Nickerson, celebrating the gallery’s first anniversary.

The Pleasure Principal investigates the mode of 21st century living and contemporary consumerist culture through the work of four talented contemporaries: Steven Dickie, Rebecca Griffiths, Tom Gallant and Ha Young Kim. Each artist questions our dependence on modern technologies or the perverse and often self-destructive culture of consuming. Art works on display will include sculptural works by Rebecca Griffiths and Steven Dickie, ink wash paintings by Tom Gallant and acrylic paintings on drafting film by Ha Young Kim. Referencing a religion of shiny products, quick hits and internet zones the artists question the relationship between freedom and necessity in our contemporary existence.
