Touching at Mene Mene Tekel Parsin

Mene Mene Tekel Parsin cur. Jesse Darling and Wysing Arts Centre, brings together works by international artists working across a variety of disciplines, who employ words and language to illuminate and obfuscate, fully cogent of the propagandist deployment of slogans and the seductively tall tales of advertising copy. 

The artists are Sarah Boulton, Stanley Brouwn, Jesse Darling, Gordon Hall, Evan Ifekoya, Sulaïman Majali, Imran Perretta, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, Özgür Kar, Claire Potter, Rosa Johan Uddoh, Hannah Weiner and Constantina Zavitsanos.

Commission for 'No Title'

"CCA is pleased to announce that Mason Leaver-Yap, Claire Potter, Karl Holmqvist and Jacob Wren have been commissioned to contribute texts for ‘No Title’, CCA’s ongoing public project with Sarah Pierce. ‘No Title’ is centred around Pierce’s interest in dementia, taking a creative and critical approach to ‘the community of dementia’ that departs from the typical artistic approaches of the therapeutic or diagnostic. The project continues the artist’s ongoing interests in narrative, collective memory, and constructions of community."
