UNIVERSITY OF KENT FINE ART DEGREE SHOW KENT

The exhibition offers the public a fascinating insight into contemporary art’s most recent practices and processes; from an installation imagining a future Kent submerged below the sea, to psycho-geographical explorations of Rainham marshes and the communities along the Hoo peninsula. Visitors will discover art installations revealing acoustic experiments in an abandoned psychiatric hospital, human ‘hosts’ dispersing half-remembered childhood smells, a personal archaeology of colonialism in South Africa and bizarre kinetic feeding machines.

As well as involving students from Kent, and elsewhere in the UK, this year’s Degree Show exhibitors include student artists from Japan, Latvia, Malta, Nepal, Italy, Cyprus, Poland, Hong Kong and Sudan.

The brief for the photography was to capture a selection of the artwork on display, these included small works of traditional art right through to large installations, I used two lenses, 16-35mm wide angle zoom and the 70-200mm to capture the guests looking at the weird and wonderful works of art on display. International artist Lindsay Seers opened the event to the public and gave a very inspiring talk to the students who are based at the University of Kent's campus at Chatham Dockyards, a perfect setting for the artists to be inspired by. The public viewings are taking place on 24th, 25th, 28th May – 1st June (10am - 5pm)
