Wysing Arts Centre launches their latest group exhibition, The Fifth Artist, opening at their Cambridge location on May 23 and running until July 5.
The exhibition brings new works by four artists that had participated in live-in farmhouse residencies during the winter of 2014 at Wysing Arts Centre, residencies that were themed The Future and haunted by the spectral presence of The Fifth Artist. These artists are Olivier Castel, Jesse Darling, Julia Crabtree & William Evans, and Alice Theobald.
A recounted ghost story, they write, created a slippage between fiction and reality, a “part-believed, part-ridiculed ripple” that cast a shadow over not only their time at the Cambridge farmhouse but their post-residency work as well.
