Paradise Row is pleased to present The Instability of the Image a group show reflecting on the idea of representation in contemporary art practices.
Digital culture has transformed images into a currency capable of questioning economic systems and power structures. The increasing availability of devices to look at the world has contributed to the creation of a set of new relationships between visual culture and materiality. The power of perception - technological and personal has been destabilised, challenging the way we absorb and portray our surroundings.
The artists included in the show use various approaches to explore representation, experimenting with sources, forms and techniques, employing repetition, abstraction, velocity and fragmentation as artistic tools to escape realism whilst tending towards an accurate depiction of the world.
