THE WOOM ROOM X THE ALCHEMY EXPERIMENT
SPONSORED BY MINOR FIGURES, PANTHER MILK & BREWGOODER.
An exploration of the inner turmoil’s and tribulations of lockdown.
From the feeling of languishing in every fresh existential crisis in your home prison to the bursting of life when you are suddenly free to roam the streets and enjoy a pint with your pals. We want to pinpoint the wide-ranging emotions and misconceptions of the working from home bubble to the melancholy of furlough life. We want to harness this new inner power that the creative community has found over this period from either gaining more time, or from introspection and overcoming inner barriers.
But in contrast looking at the struggle of everyday tasks that you took for granted suddenly taking herculean effort from answering the door to getting dressed to go to Lidl. From watching the fresh horrors on the news to trying to keep your family and plants alive. To contacting your technologically inept elders and managing the mental health of you and your friends.
A look at how the absence of play and the food that is the energy of life has evaded us and in turn has stagnated the nation. How we can harness this period into new creative outcomes to help us process our collective trauma. We will also look at the transition of viewing art in a physical space to viewing it through the portal of the hand held screen.
We want to explore the full cycle and have asked over 30 artists to be involved from illustrators, dancers, djs and animators to express their experiences that lockdown has given them and the feeling post lockdown has given them.
All materials are found or second hand to celebrate the hope that moving forward we can be a greener nation – especially that of the artworld and our businesses.
