HOUSE Biennial at Phoenix Brighton: Common Threads late night opening

  • 27 October 2017 6-11pm

Phoenix Brighton is partnering with HOUSE Biennial and Outside In to present newly commissioned work, shown alongside related existing work of two artists selected by open submission.

Two artists this year, Anthony Stevens (Brighton) and Andrew Omoding (London), have been selected from Outside In’s network of over 2500 artists to produce new artworks inspired by the theme of ‘Excess’ and the work of HOUSE Biennial invited artist Laura Ford.

Anthony Stevens​ is a self-taught artist whose work is about expressing personal experiences and processing the consequences. His characterful hand embroidered textile collages draw out satirical observations around human behaviour and our underlying motivations. The act of making itself is mindful and important process in making the work. Stevens’ work shares personal stories alongside more widely known fables that explore excess and its implications found in mythology, historical events as much as contemporary societal values and consumerist trends. This includes how the need to be loved has been manipulated into a desire to overconsume.

Ugandan born Andrew Omoding’s ​work is largely autobiographical. His mixed media creations include sculptures, books and costumes made from left-over and scrap materials he finds. Omoding selects a variety of found materials to weave, wrap, sew, thread and construct new objects. An intuitive process, the works are created as his stories evolve. Whilst making, the artist simultaneously sings, performs and shares his works through storytelling. Andrew will be present in the gallery at selected times throughout the exhibition to share wider stories on the works exhibited - details to follow.

Conceived in 2008 by Directors Judy Stevens and Chris Lord, HOUSE is a contemporary visual arts festival that began in part as a response to the limited space in the city for presenting contemporary art. HOUSE is curated by Celia Davies and commissions an internationally regarded Invited Artist and selects for commission a range of artists at varying career stages. Inherent to HOUSE is a potential to experience new ideas and different ways of thinking within the artistic process.
