An exhibition featuring the work of international artists during the inaugural Maverick Expo, London 2015.
The Other as defined by eminent sociologist Zygmunt Bauman is ”Woman is the other of man, animal is the other of human, stranger is the other of native, abnormality the other of norm, deviation the other of law-abiding, illness the other of health, insanity the other of reason, lay public the other of the expert, foreigner the other of state subject, enemy the other of friend, them the other of us…”
Featured works explore the literal and abstract interpretations of this definition through various mediums and personal experience.
Animamus Art Salon was created by Ventiko in 2011 with the mission to create a safe, supportive and inspiring environment for artists of all mediums to debut and discuss their current work while encouraging audience participation. Animamus Art Salon seeks, in this digital age, to create a physical meeting space that will serve to foster the exchange of ideas, facilitate discourse, and create a sense of community.
