Central St Martins BA and MA degree shows kicked off this weekend with a number of multidisciplinary exhibitions stretching across the Kings Cross campus. The MA was a bit more colourful and fun this year with a heavy emphasis on Performance and Installation Art with an obvious love of materials and found objects. Outstanding were Dannielle Hodson’s cubist inspired performance and Dejan Mrdja who worked in drawing and performance disciplines. The BA show had a number of painters of note including; Aaron Ford’s epic painting panels ‘Show me the Beginning and I Swear to God I’ll show you the End’ and Joseph Childlaw’s politically inspired canvases. Here are some of our favourites pieces. (See Slide Show)
Central St Martins MA Fine Arts
The students of MA Fine Art aim to challenge and explore a wide range of issues and concerns relating to art and its intersections with current contemporary culture. Their individualities, origins and background determine the diversity of visual language and mediums they work across, which include painting, sculpture, photography and print-making, as well as video, sound, installation, performance and beyond. Graduates include: WALID AL WAWI, KIRSTIN BARNES, MICHAEL S. BRYAN, ALESSANDRO CARBONI, MARIANNE CASMOSE, PABLO CASTAÑEDA SANTANA, FERGUS COOPER, ANTONY CROSSFIELD, JASMINE FULFORD, DANNIELLE HODSON ZHAO HUANG, ANASTASIA KACHALOVA, ERIKO KAWAI, ALEKSANDRA KOSON, PEI-FEN LEE, M. LOHRUM, JACK MARDER, JORGE MARTIN, DEJAN MRDJA, MATTHEW NIGHTINGALE, JANE PHILLIPS, AGATHE REILLE, MĒTRA SABEROVA, IRENE SARTORIO, ZSUZSA SZUTS, JAMES TAILOR, JOJO TAYLOR, NIAMH TREACY, MATTEO VALERIO, RUPERT WHALE, MICHELLE YASUDA
The interdisciplinary practices from students of MA Photography reflect the novel forms of dissemination, proliferation, and function of images that surround us today. Exploring this digital condition opens up an enquiry into what photography might be, beyond a two-dimensional representation, fixed in time. Ideas that question/problematise traditional binary approaches to thought and production mesh with a reevaluation of what it means to be a photographic artist interacting with society via the “black box” of a camera. Graduates include: TIMO BAIER, SIOBHAN BRADSHAW, ELISA COSTANTINI, MATILDE DAMELE, LUCREZIA DE FAZIO, IRENE DOMÍNGUEZ JERVIS, XUE DU, ANNI KATRIN ELMER, EBONY FRANCIS, VISHAL KUMARASWAMY, BEN LANSKYMAXIMILIEN LEBAUDY, MARIA LUIGIA GIOFFRÈ, BEN MARLAND, CAROLINA MITSUKA, ALEX ONISIFOROU, YIXIAO SHAO, SIMONA SHARAFUDINOV, VALENTINA STOCCO, JULIA WOLF, FANG WU
MA Art & Science
MA Art and Science students are responding to a fast-emerging territory for interdisciplinary and collaborative practice. From a diverse set of professional and creative backgrounds, they are all engaged in challenging the boundaries of traditional modes of artistic exploration. Through cross-pollination of ideas and shared motivations, the students are discovering novel manifestations of art and science and investigating how to communicate them. Graduates include: AGNESE BASOVA, JOSH CHOW, MONIKA DORNIAK, YU JI, MARIA MACC, JUAN PEREZ FIGUEROA, LEON RADSCHINSKI-GORMAN, HEATHER SCOTT, HANNAH SCOTT, VIRGINIE SERNEELS, ITING SHIH, NICOLAS STRAPPINI, NEUS TORRES TAMARIT, MICHELLE VON MANDEL
Of particular note Ella Husbands video installation on the top floor, Painting by Joseph Chidla, Aaron Ford, Realf Heygate and Antoine Langenieux-Villard. I also liked the mobility vehicle complete with balloons and Muzac by Grace Hinton.
