Bunker 2

Mission Gallery, Swansea Maritime Quarter - 20mins walk from our B&B

 

Mission Gallery is delighted to present the work of Brooklyn based artist Doug Ashford in his first solo exhibition in Wales, delivered in partnership with Swansea International Festival.

This new video animation Bunker 2, intersperses news clippings dated from 1982 to 2016 with bands of changing colour. The barrage of images and the black metal that accompanies them, presents an overwhelming concurrence of fact and feeling. As images blend into one another, and the aesthetic connection to colour allows intuition to take over, the work suggest the possibility that our emotions can resist the culture of publicity and reshape notions of progress.

Bunker 2 was first shown in May 2017 at MASS MoCA’s In the Abstract exhibition, which brought together a diverse, multi generational group of artists whose works represented a potent and muscular approach to contemporary abstraction. Doug Ashford is an artist, teacher and writer based in New York. He is Associate Professor at The Cooper Union where he has taught sculpture, design, and interdisciplinary studies since 1989. He is represented by Wilfried Lentz, Rotterdam.
