‘Common Ground’, an exhibition opening at Doncaster Museum & Art Gallery on 28th June, brings together the work of two artists to help us re-examine the past.
The artists, Donna Bramall and Jungle, have filled the gallery with playful and thought provoking artefacts, designed to stir childhood memories and bring old and forgotten items into the present day.
Items included in the exhibition range from a fairground ride, a Raleigh Chopper bicycle made from concrete and even a crazy golf course!
Both artists use found objects, recycled waste products and everyday building materials to rediscover the past, reflecting on how it has shaped their adult lives; the resulting collaboration is one of the most eclectic mixes of work to be seen in the gallery for many years.
Cabinet member for Tourism, Councillor Bob Johnson, said: ‘The ‘Common Ground’ exhibition is a really exciting and interesting chance for the people of Doncaster to take a look back in time, and see their childhood memories, in many cases, come to the present day. The artists behind this exhibition are from very different backgrounds, but have joined together with fascinating results.’
Donna Bramall, who was the winner of the 2010 Open Art exhibition at Doncaster Museum & Art Gallery sees her work as being about the ‘reflection of childhood memories, while ’Jungle describes his work as ‘bringing to life visions from a timeline’.
The ‘common ground’ of the exhibition’s title refers to the desire that both artists share - to recreate childhood memories by combining eclectic and old items with the present day.
The exhibition runs until the 7th September.
