Deixis (Part 1)

Mizoomi Gallery, London, UK   Preview evening: Thursday 02.03.17, 18:30-21:30 Multi-disciplinary artist, lecturer and course leader in Creative Arts Miranda Whall will present the series of three ‘Untitled, Birds on my head’ and one of a series of ‘Lace Drawings’ in the group show Deixis (Part 1) at Mizoomi Gallery. Whall’s drawings present fantasy scenarios where the artist attempts to equally co-exist with objects, architecture, materials, living creatures etc to make humorous, unlikely and uncanny scenarios. Whall’s fictions play out extremely personal, exhibitionist and explicit representations of herself in order to explore the (in)appropriateness and (mis)placed multiple and simultaneous dimensions of being a contemporary human being. The Mizoomi gallery, with a focus on encouraging the exposure of international contemporary artists, presents Deixis (part 1). In linguistics deixis refers to words or phrases that cannot be fully understood without additional contextual information. The exhibition includes a representation of five internationally exhibited and published artists. MIZOOMI GALLERY, 168 FULHAM ROAD, LONDON SW10 9PR.
