Drawing on T. S. Eliot’s seminal modernist poem, The Waste Land, as the thematic thread between the five artists – all based in or strongly influenced by the urban metropolis – the exhibition presents a reflexive, complex, multi-dimensional conversation about the poetics of despair, the search for true connection, the tenuous state of morality, and the uncertainty, yet necessity, of the future.
