All That the Rain Promises and More...

25 July 2019 until 14 September 2019
Arusha Gallery

Arusha Gallery and guest curator Aimée Parrott present All That the Rain Promises and More….

This group exhibition takes the fruiting body of fungus, the mushroom, as a starting point. From ancient myths and folkloric legends to recent scientific discoveries, fungi has been heralded as a powerful symbol of hope and ecological connectivity, bringing the promise of renewal, reproduction and fertility. Crossing multiple generations, with work from Helen Chadwick, Ithell Colquhoun, Sean Steadman and Paloma Proudfoot, the 17 selected artists share a preoccupation with the symbiotic connection we each have with our environment. In their own way each artist acknowledges the human body as a porous, precarious site and life as a precarious condition.

Victoria Adam | Wilhelmina Barns-Graham | Helen Chadwick | Ithell Colquhoun | Natalie Dray | Ed Hill | Kate McMillan | Aimée Parrott | Matthew Peers | Paloma Proudfoot | Hermione Spriggs | James Sowerby | Sean Steadman | Emma Talbot | Virginia Verran | Joel Wyllie | Jerusha West
