London's favourite zine is back with a fresh coven of feminist creatives for their latest exhibition 'Life and Death'. Presented as part of Test Pressing Festival, over 25 artists delve in on the alternate ways our identities shape different stages of our lives.
"I wanted to theme the exhibition broadly enough that it would be inclusive of artists of different mediums and walks of life, while still having a cohesive project that visitors can immerse themselves in," explains Ione Gamble, editor of Polyester.
The one-day exhibit, which is displayed in two alternate rooms -- Adolescence/Adulthood and Death -- traces the different perspectives on the human condition through the female and queer gaze. "Regarding curation, all the work is femme and/or by LGBTQ+ artists," Ione continues. "One of Polyester's main aims as a platform is to break down the hierarchy of the traditional art world and create environments that are as inclusive and non-intimidating as possible."
Ahead of the exhibition opening tomorrow, BRICKS takes sneak peek at some of the work featured.
Life and Death opens April 28, 12pm - 5:30pm, The Cloud and Horse, N15 4QN, purchase tickets here.
