MA Fine Art and Printmaking students showcase creativity at final degree show

Ahead of the MA Fine Art and MA Printmaking final degree show this September, here's a sneaky peak at some of the work being presented

Identifier, which runs from 16 to 22 September, is the final degree show for students currently undertaking MA Fine Art and MA Printmaking at Middlesex.

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 Evans

MA PrintmakingEsther uses text-based works to explore translation, which she argues "does not renew the life of the original."

Martina Geier

MA PrintmakingMartina has created artefacts intended to convey the haunting immateriality of memory.

Fiona Quadmani

MA PrintmakingFiona’s practice also examines site as both place and memory.

Clare Walter

MA Printmaking

Clare's film looks at the social convention of making and drinking tea.

Ghaida Alkhelaiwi

MA Fine ArtGhaida addresses the image, role and status of women in society — a potent topic for Ghaida, who is originally from Saudi Arabia.

Sophie Cero

MA Fine Art Sophie CeroSophie 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.

Corinne Charlton

Corinne MA Fine ArtWorking across painting and digital film, Corinne creates portraits of women that do not partake in a postmodern emptiness of the image.

Fiona Wallace

MA Fine Art Fiona Wallace

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.

A publication will accompany the exhibition with critical writing by Professor Jon Bird, contemporary British artist Kimathi Donkor, Dr Alexandra Kokoli, Nadia Quadmani and Suzanne van Rossenberg.

Identifier will be open 10:00 – 18:00, Monday to Friday and 11:00 – 16:00, Saturday.
