Test Space Open 2015
Test Space, Spike Island, Bristol


Preview: Friday 1st May, 6-9pm
Exhibition runs: 2 - 17 May 2015



"Although not themed or curated, the Test Space artists jostle together nicely. Their work compliments each other, some politely, some sitting awkwardly and firing off the odd insult. There's a folk art feel, but one that feels almost science fiction, like some kind of relic from the future. 
The artists neatly slalom any artisan Hipsterism or utopian daydreaming by having one foot firmly planted in the everyday world with often brutal imagery, self depreciating humour and crudely hewn and finely crafted ideas."
