Jamie Shovlin: How most of what you know is reconstruction
This exhibition presents new and existing work by the artist Jamie Shovlin alongside artworks from the Gallery’s permanent collection. Exploring ideas around time, object, memory and experience, the exhibition establishes new perspectives through which the works can be understood, revealing similarities and divergent themes within the artist’s practice and Southampton’s permanent art collection. How most of what you know is reconstruction addresses the relationship between the object and its subsequent life in an increasingly digital world, and asks whether any experience can be considered authentic?
