Emotive Collective Exhibition

February 8 @ 7:00 pm - February 13 @ 6:00 pm

13 artists = 13 stories

The Emotive exhibition spans two floors of the grade 1 listed Regency Town House in Brunswick Square, Hove. It shows the work of thirteen artists: eight graduates and five second year students from the University of Brighton. Studying towards an MA in Sequential Design and Illustration they reached an understanding that although their individual project themes varied, the depth of research and an exploration of their deep inner feelings linked them together as a group.

The stories told are embedded with personal experiences, but they also share a universal narrative, inviting their audience to become involved, to participate, to become EMOTIVE.

The work reflects both their individual skills as illustrators, designers, animators and writers and the multiplicity of their cultural backgrounds.

The artists have experimented with media, techniques and formats which challenge their usual working methods and this shift in their working practice has led to them finding new ways to communicate their stories. This visually diverse exhibition of multidisciplinary work is the result of their inquiry.

Julia Kwinto grew up in communist Poland and has since worked as a graphic designer in the USA and London. Her series of paintings bring alive childhood memories and their associated trauma, serving as illustrations to the accompanying text of her handmade book entitled ‘Patterns of Memory’. The project addresses the universal issues of personal and inherited trauma and its effects on our mental health.
