Exhibition: 14-17 September 2016
Cass MA Show 2016
Hanasu series by Moe Sekiya, MA Photography
The Cass MA Show 2016 will take place from 14 to 17 September, opening with a private view on 13 September from 6pm to 9pm.
The exhibition will feature work from both taught and research postgraduate courses in art, architecture and design at The Cass. Disciplines represented include fine art, furniture, graphics, interiors, jewellery and silversmithing, music, photography, product, spatial planning, urban design and more.
The Fine Art and Photography MA show features 11 artists, each from a different world city. The works range from beautiful but bleak documentary photographs to presentations of objects relating to a history of women's lives. The exhibition focuses on new approaches to painting that depend on performance. At a time when perhaps England is looking for answers within itself, this show reminds us that art is an international language that knows no borders.
All eyes on London
The final day of the exhibition, 17 September, coincides with the last day of the annual London Design Festival when all eyes in the international design world turn to London. From 17 to 24 September, The Cass will also be holding an exhibition entitled Making Matters, showcasing the cream of student, alumni and staff work in the Bank Space Gallery. Individual students and alumni are also involved in events across the festival.
Talking about the work, Moe said: "In this photography series, Hanasu, I explore the relationship between the photographer and the subject/object. I use my camera to speak to others（話す), release myself（離す) and relinquish my boundaries (放す)."
