Antlers Gallery presented a showcase exhibition Old Beliefs in Stroud, Gloucestershire.
The title Old Beliefs is a direct translation of ‘Gamle Tro’, the Swedish common speech term for Folklore. It references the strong natural history elements in the exhibition and the relevance of nature as metaphor in the artists’ practice. Works with strong narrative elements, pieces that evoke a sense of the uncanny and references to the natural world unify the artists.
This exhibition revealed a group of artists at an exciting point in their careers who, although working independently, share common points of reference as part of a bourgeoning international scene. This was a great exhibition to get a taster for the artists Antlers represents.
Exhibiting artists: Abigail Reed, Alexander Korzer-Robinson, Amy Timms, Anouk Mercier, Charles Emerson, Jessica Bartlett, Rachel Sokal, Rose Sanderson, Tim Lane.
