The Roots that Clutch
Lara Chamas, Caroline Garcia, Jess Miley, Derek Sargent and James Tylor.
Curated by Saskia Scott.
This exhibition explores the role of the artist as (hi)story-teller. Featuring photography and video work by Lara Chamas, Caroline Garcia, Jess Miley, James Tylor, and Derek Sargent, the exhibition highlights how our values, beliefs, and sense of identity are shaped by the stories we tell. Drawing on history, they explore their own identities and understand the modern world. The works in this exhibition challenge grand narratives, fill in gaps and silences, and reinsert intimacy and nuance into our understanding of both the past and the present.
