Review of 'Neither Here Nor Then' by Jon Thomson and Alison Craighead
Daniel Rourke reviews Jon Thomson and Alison Craighead's exhibition at the Carroll / Fletcher Gallery, London, UK.
On from 24 May - 13 July 2013
This is the first survey exhibition bringing together a range of new and recent works. Interested in how information about the world is filtered through the prism of the world wide web, and other forms of information technology, Thomson & Craighead play with this data to create poetic, compelling works that ask fundamental questions about what it is to be human.
Encompassing small-scale quotidian encounters, as well as works that point up the smallness of humankind in the vastness of the universe, there is a lyricism and lightness of touch that enables the artists to address major political and social themes from unexpected angles.
