Juxtaposition is the cheat’s guide to emotional depth. Using objects of a pseudo-revolution, ‘ANTICLIMAX’ is a place of excess designed to facilitate meaningmaking. Here, the combination of text, film and sculpture form a world of emotional and ideological tensions. Poetic, authoritative and absurd, the work relies on the viewer to make connections and in doing so, questions the power-dynamics of interpretation. What is the position of empathy within a mechanised system? Do materials embody, or substitute action? This place is taut with convolution and conflict, but it is also where relationships are formed.

Christina Cushing is a multimedia artist based in Nottingham. Her work combines virtual and physical mediums to explore metaphor and sensibility. She challenges objectivity as collective perception rather than singular, indisputable fact.


Christina has been invited by Claire Davies to run alongside her Solo Show The Valley of Lost Things, which continues till the 21 April. https://www.facebook.com/events/175819166518254/
