online exhibition 18 artists

A constellation is a group of stars that seem to create a particular shape in the sky. In fact the stars are not connected to each other at all. Some may be close to each while others are very far away. It’s only when an observer uses imagination that a shape’s revealed and the constellation transforms into an image.

Constellation 18 is an exhibition that originates in this same play between perception and happenstance. While the world has necessarily been held apart for the past year to slow the spread of COVID the 18 artists based at Artworks studio have likewise been isolated from one another while the studio has largely remained closed. The idea of a studio block and the collectivity it usually enables has for this quarantine time, simply been an idea – an ideal of a collective working environment.

Physical isolation is one thing but here at Artworks we also wondered whether art and art-making can enable collectivity and overcome the constraints of social isolation. This was the premise behind the making of a new online exhibition – Constellation 18. Via work that specifically responds to this unprecedented time Constellation 18 reveals how the imagination always works to make sense of times of constraint and uncertainty.
