REUNIFICATION is a diverse collective of 9 recent graduates (2014/15) from 3 of Scotland’s Art Schools. However this is not the only thing they have in common as
the seeds of the collective were sown when the artists worked side by side in the HND Contemporary Art Practice studios of Edinburgh College Granton.
In their most recent exhibition “ETC…” opened last night at Edinburgh’s G4 Bunker, which is part of the Gayfield Creative Spaces project.
Coming hot on the heels of their successful show at the critically acclaimed Generator Projects space in Dundee this summer the current exhibition presents a variety of contemporary artworks including video, painting, sound work, performance, installation and sculpture which offer an insight into concerns around the passing of time.
In the roughly constructed subterranean spaces of the bunker history is brought forward into the present, challenging the idea of finite timelines. This creates the opportunity for dialogues with an audience, as they are encouraged to deepen their understandings of past cultures and history. New meanings are explored in overlooked materials, be they behaviors, spaces or ephemeral objects, that hold specific importance to their respective times in history and culture.
