London is currently booming with artists who are constantly experimenting and challenging the public with different sources/forms to show.
Along with this exhibition, Mokspace is hoping to entice the public with differentiated medium that we can find easily around us used in unconventional ways. Also, this exhibition would bring synergy effect on the both young emerging artists and professional artist who are already participating in various biennales and art fairs as they would be able to see their works in a new light.
Each work accurately portrays events and objects as the artists see it and they hope to show beyond what they see – in their own construction and invite us to participate in interpreting them in our own way.
