The Trinity Buoy Wharf is pleased to host 'this is my land', a group exhibition featuring exciting pathways with the mediums of paint, sculpture, drawing and photography.

Curated by Marianne Glass and Adam Kelly.

Featuring the work of Haley Court, Alishia Duncanson, Gerard Finn, Diego Fuente, Katelina Fusco, Deme Georghiou, Marianne Glass, Sigrid Holmwood, Adam Kelly, Ben Phillips and Jessica Tautz.

A first-time exhibition organised by Marianne Glass and Adam Kelly, 'this is my land' seeks to renew interest in representing social definitions through the exhibited artists’ chosen mediums, to ultimately provide a contemporary basis for their selective materials.

Exhibiting in the centre of east end London, the selected artists gain a greater perspective to global situations from London’s multicultural backdrop.

The exhibition title 'this is my land' stipulates private ownership and the placement of boundaries in an environment free and open to global viewers and participating audiences, denying a place of relations. Luckily the Trinity Buoy Wharf, London’s only lighthouse, offers solace and guidance for the exhibiting artists and local community lacking an image or composite, to become joined at the hip.

Throughout the exhibition the work reflects primitive sources with futuristic possibilities, anchored down by the history of the venue as well as the cultural backgrounds of the exhibiting artists. The exhibition and venue morphs the artists’ practices around ideal and dystopian misapprehensions, not to rely on theatrical poise but rather a silent presence. They attract a re-appraisal of modernism with surficial contemporary ambiguity. The selected artworks reveal ‘individual consciousness’, appearing the masters of their own destinies.

Together, the selected artworks represent a nostalgic determination for a mass revolution for change, whether it is ancestrally inherited or environmentally nurtured.

'this is my land' is exhibiting art with problems and solutions to the concept of utopia.
