In times of uncertainty and anxiety this exhibition brings together seven artists working with video who question its conventions through an exploration of its relationship to the real world, challenging the physical and conceptual limits of what it means to live in the world today. Many of the works probe the vast theme of time, layering history and memory, or focus on the transient, fragile nature of our existence and mortality.
The name of the exhibition is taken from Aldous Huxley’s novel Brave New World. When John the Savage moved into this “brave new world” from the Savage Reservation, feeling confused and blocked within and without the society, he cried out these words and chose to be unhappy. People's pursuit of happiness has modelled the cultural and financial construction of the consumerist society nowadays; however, there is a price to pay. This exhibition seeks to urge our reflection on the routines and restrictions in daily living, and to open up our imagination and thoughts for “a better world”.
