There’s Something I’d Like to Tell You

A group exhibition of artwork from British artists based in London and Berlin


Participating Artists: Lauren Aston, Marco Chiandetti, Floss Cobb, Anna M R Freeman, Chloe Grove, Julia Hayes, Jenny Hooper, Anna Hughes, Paul Smith, Diana Taylor, and Stephen Walter.


The exhibition presents a selection of

artists who, through careful and sensitive

use of media, express to their audience an

atmosphere of memories, dreams, tales and

forgotten sentiments. This group of artists

have variously sought to describe narratives

of the past drawn out through the

processes of collecting lost photographs

and aural histories, referencing literature

and exploring architecture. Plotting places

and situating ideas in timeless contexts, the

artists, through drawing, stitching, folding,

and printing impressions, are laying their

individual concerns out before the viewer.

The work in the exhibition seeks to

represent a set of personal significances

around another time or place or people.

Many of the artists use retrospective

imagery and references to tell us something

about contemporary living.

In a show that demonstrates how

ambitious themes and subjects can be told

through delicate and quiet methods, the

artists here describe a rich and varied

collective pictorial memory.
