Here Comes Everybody

  • 31 July — 23 October 2015 *on now

Here Comes Everybody is an exhibition of work by kennardphillipps, the collaborative practice of London-based artists Peter Kennard and Cat Phillipps, formed in 2003 in response to the invasion of Iraq.

The large accumulation of photographic imagery, comprised of photomontage, digital prints and found newspapers is displayed alongside a major new installation, which explores ideas around image consumption, production and camera surveillance. Through the creation of a ‘cauldron’ of material, the artists will highlight what they describe as the ‘cause and effect’ of a range of global issues such as financial austerity, climate change, disease and war.

kennardphillipps show their work in public spaces of all kinds ranging from the street, museums, galleries, newspapers, magazines and the internet. Here Comes Everybody will represent a continuation of their interest in making work that is a critical tool, connected to international movements for social and political change: "We don’t see the work as separate to social and political movements that are confronting established political and economic systems. We see it as part of those movements, the visual arm of protest."
