World of Emotions

Current Exhibition

World of Emotions is from from up-and-coming artists and exhibition curators Catia Bessa and Jasmine Kelly-gobuiwang.

Catia and Jasmine met at De Montfort University where they both study Fine Art. At the beginning of their third year of study they decided to organise an exhibition to compensate for the lost opportunities for professional practise during the pandemic. The theme of Emotion for the exhibition came about through reflecting on how they and other creatives can share different perspectives in their worlds.

The exhibition ran in Atkins Gallery from 14 Feb to 11 March 2022

This is the Pandemic

By Sundeep Gill Instagram @sgilcreatives Medium: Screen print

This is the Pandemic explores people's experience during the Coronavirus pandemic and aims to build a connection with the viewer. This project began with gathering information by using questionnaires to understand how people felt during the pandemic and the results showed very similar emotions and experiences. The work aims to bring people together and make them feel like they were not the only ones experiencing the emotions they did during the pandemic.

Mindful Forecast

My work explores the relationship we've created with emotions and the weather, and the it plays with the idea that emotions are not straight forward.

Home to Uni, uni to Home

By Jasmine Kelly-gobuiwang Medium: Mixed media with found objects

Walking is an action we all take, in our journeys sometimes we forget to really look and i decided to look closer. I walked from my university to my own home and vice versa uncovering my own surroundings. I used my own recycling, scrap and material found along the way. I am drawn to using material that is forgotten to remind myself and my audience anything can be seen again

My current study in the arts is using forms of illustration, poetry and writing as an emotional outlet to project my gender dysphoria. A lot of my influence comes from the distortion of the body and explicit content that highlight sex, gender and self hatred.

Constrained

By Jasmine Kelly-gobuiwang and Jay Medium: Screenshot of performance piece film 5 minutes 22 seconds in length

The concept of this performance piece is to address the political correctness which we are surrounded by concerning different spaces, objects and people in modern society. We are people in a space that can become objects depending on our surroundings. the idea behind constrained comes from being expected to behave a certain way in social/cultural environments. We're constrained by our surroundings.
