DESCRIPTION

Stoke Newington Artists Group (SNAG) are a group of multidisciplinary artists from Stoke Newington / Hackney who formed in 2009, and meet regularly to discuss their practice, drawing inspiration and ideas from each other.

In this, their first collaborative exhibition, SNAG explores the theme of ‘Local’ and has invited other artists from a variety of disciplines to join them through their investigation into ‘Localness’.

Each artist has individually responded to the theme by making new works that pose the question ‘What is local?’, engaging with the subject through a variety of media including sound, photography, drawing, painting and installation.

From a walk to the local shop, new constructions changing familiar places, objects we find beneath the surface of our gardens, textures under our bare feet or recognisable faces we see in the street, to a cup of tea we share with neighbours; the aim of this exhibition is to bring together artists, not all of them ‘local’, to present works that reflect locality and invite the viewer to think about what local means to them.
