This exhibition 'echo chambers', to be held at Prague College from 11 to 15 June 2018, is the culmination of the fourth semester of the Fine Art HND programme, the class who enrolled in the programme in September 2016.
As a group, we would like to mark the past four semesters that we have spent together and we hope that it will become a significant milestone in our higher education. All of us aspire to continue in the BA Fine Art programme in September. We have take this path of learning together; but of all the lessons we have learnt, one remains the most important: the experience of coexisting in the same space with others .
Living in an era of radical individualism and a high degree of personal customisation, we have accommodated ourselves in the comfort of echo chambers. They are constantly reinforcing our beliefs by actively reflecting our preferences — most noticeably in the digital reality where the content we receive is effortlessly navigated towards us by an algorithm which has come to know us too well.
However, for us, our personal echo chambers are spaces that reflect personal growth - a space for experimentation where the artistic practice is suspended between the recognised affiliations and the unknown which is yet to be explored. It is where our passions and obsessions reverberate through the air that rightfully belongs to us. "
We would like to invite everyone to come to see the work of our students at Prague College. The exhibition opens on 11 June, and is open to the public as well as the college community.
