Collective Reality refers to a cluster of socially accepted notions which make up our experience of the world and allow us to process what would otherwise be senseless. Our sense of collective reality is formed through social interactions and thus eradicate an individual’s own purpose and subsequent choices of action. The experience of collective reality is becoming increasingly disparate with the rise of post-internet culture and post-truth expectations. The exhibition challenges the notion of an overarching social reality through focusing on each individual artist’s exploration and investigation into their own existence. Within our unified collective each artist has a vastly different identity manifested in each work. The core themes explored through out work are identity, society and mundanity, in the everyday, all of which link back to the experience of collective reality. The exhibition comprises of entirely new works yet to be exhibited in the public realm.
