After a brief spell at Grizedale Arts in the English lakes, Forgetting the Ordinary takes on some of the most complex questions facing contemporary art today – can art be useful? (And if so, what distinguishes it from everything else?) Where does the authenticity of experience lie? And what is it that transforms something from the banal to the beautiful?
Drawing from a disparate range of experiences – from rural drudgery in the English countryside and run-ins with London bobbies to fatherhood and fruitless fishing trips, these four artists come together for the last time to make a defiant stand against the relentless onslaught of everyday ordinariness.
