Oct 11 - Nov 17, 2018
Private view Wed Oct 10 5pm - 7pm
Meditations in an Emergency takes its title from a poem by Frank O’Hara, written as prose-like musings on the subject of cultural identity and romantic heartbreak, spiked with landscape imagery. The word meditations (plural), suggests a gathering of thoughts or expressions on a subject, while emergency sets the pace.
 
The starting point for the exhibition is the dance track, accompanying a new moving image work, which occupies the genre of acid trance. The moving image work is inspired by the recent international controversy surrounding the homoerotic video of Russian air cadets dancing to Benny Benassi’s club anthem Satisfaction, and features material found online and filmed by the artist at an undisclosed location in Cornwall.
 
The exhibition also features ceramics, poetry and painting, building on Bayliss’ ongoing interest in working within craft-based traditions. Woven throughout the exhibition are explorations of rural and queer identity, romanticism and a surreal sense of place.
