Staffordshire St are excited to present the group exhibition ‘Baggage Claim’ curated by independent curator Georgia Stephenson and artist-educator Rosalind Wilson, which examines the tools and burdens we carry with us.
A sculptural display of works presents an assortment of responses: from self-defence to coping mechanisms, compulsions or avoidances, self-medication, mantras, armour and antidotes. The works on display are vessels or vehicles for dealing with or undertaking the myriad journeys of life.
The title of the exhibition is taken from Rosalind and Georgia’s chosen method of display: a large curved plinth which references the dimensions of an airport’s baggage carousel. Categorised by ‘baggage size’, the plinth displays a variety of sculptural and video artworks by 46 artists based in London, the UK more widely and internationally.
This platform asks the viewer to consider the methods they carry with them to navigate challenging times, but equally offers an archive of potential approaches and solutions used by other creative individuals.
