Description

Survey II is a major touring exhibition led by Jerwood Arts that presents new commissions by ten of the most outstanding early-career artists in the UK. It spans a breadth of disciplines including photography, sculpture, sound, textile, film and installation, providing a distinctive snapshot of current artistic concerns and approaches.

Originally established in 2018, this second edition continues to take a non-institutional approach to selection by inviting over 30 leading artists from across the UK to nominate who they think are the most exciting and dynamic early-career artists making work today.

The exhibition explores a wide range of subjects, but at its core is a common preoccupation with how we relate to each other and the world around us. The artists consider the balance of control between humans and nature; the representation of queer and marginalised bodies; and the possibility of transformation for both materials and beings. Many works reflect on our relationships with those closest to us, asking where we find points of connection, when we are performing for each other and how we can capture moments of vulnerability and love. Others look at the formation of memory; how we archive and record to create collective touchpoints, or how we can explore diasporic memory through surface, sound and absence.

Exhibiting artists are Saelia Aparicio, Tereza Cervenova, Sadé Mica, Rebecca Moss, Cinzia Mutigli, Katarzyna Perlak, Shenece Oretha, Tako Taal, Nicolaas van de Lande and Angharad Williams.

The exhibition launched at g39 in Cardiff (2 July – 11 September 2021) before travelling to Jerwood Arts in London (1 October – 13 December 2021) and Site Gallery in Sheffield (March 2022).
