The subject focused on at this year's exhibition is identity; exploring how we choose who and what we identify with and how our identities are marked within society.
While some of the students have dissected the role of gender in identity this year, others have looked at the role of place and language in its formation. Below are just some of the pieces of work that viewers can expect to see at this topical exhibition.
Esther uses text-based works to explore translation, which she argues "does not renew the life of the original."
Martina has created artefacts intended to convey the haunting immateriality of memory.
Fiona’s practice also examines site as both place and memory.
Clare's film looks at the social convention of making and drinking tea.
Ghaida addresses the image, role and status of women in society — a potent topic for Ghaida, who is originally from Saudi Arabia.
Sophie reflects on the role of women in a domestic setting, creating artworks in which our perceptions seem at odds with our understanding. For instance, a relatively straightforward photographic representation of a familiar domestic activity, such as cooking a pie, seems eerily unidentifiable.
Working across painting and digital film, Corinne creates portraits of women that do not partake in a postmodern emptiness of the image.
By interacting with and interviewing participants, Fiona not only uses her own voice through her artwork but also instigates a new, active counter-public to think about and act upon art and feminist issues.
Identifier will be open 10:00 – 18:00, Monday to Friday and 11:00 – 16:00, Saturday.
Location: Third Floor, The Grove Building
