The artists in Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain tread similar ground. Turner Prize winner Laure Prouvost overlays spoken fantastical narratives onto commonplace objects, the pace, whimsy and charm of which often contradict the images she presents. Drawing equally from the world of symbolism and metaphor, Catrin Davies & Lewis Wright refer to the Classical painting tradition of the still life in which objects stand in for a bigger narrative. The painted surface becomes a code for the viewer to crack. Catrin & Lewis appropriate this tradition by assembling still life sculptures and flooding them with pigment. Jorge Lizalde’s work looks at the way we remember and how we recall events. In his Mnemonic series, short filmic poems are created from online resources in response to participants’ early memories.
