‘Get up, go to work, come home, get up, go work, come home but with an added element, something that wasn't there the day before, something that actually makes you think about all this routine, this place we live and call life. Ridiculous, odd, generous, pretentious and maybe a bit stupid but something that reminds us that real life is not elsewhere. It's here.’
Mark Titchner, Deptford X 2010

‘World within Worlds’ is BEARSPACE’s main curated exhibition of the year including recent graduates and emerging talent curated by BEARSPACE Director Julia Alvarez. This exhibition features artists who aim to subvert reality in response to the theme set by Mark Titchner for Deptford X, as well as unearth new burgeoning talent from the wealth of degree shows in 2010.

Each artist creates a world that teases our existence, taking elements of movement, architecture and landscape, subverting them by adding, subtracting and disseminating their visual structure.
