Peepshow/Creepshow and Disco Dilettante

26th - 29th March

The Hold Artspace

The Hold Artspace warmly invites you to the opening of two upcoming exhibitions: ‘Disco Dilettante’ and ‘Peepshow/Creepshow’.

Jamie Mumford
Disco Dilettante

The Disco Dilettante delights in the superficial nature of all things seductive, shiny and fantastic. This exhibition of recent work by Jamie Mumford considers the elements that make up the glamorous, excessive popular culture of the 70s. The work explores how materials that use the illusionistic qualities of light, as well as designs and colours from that era, can echo experiences of the discothèque.

Amanda Wolf
Peepshow/Creepshow

Part fabric fantasyland, part simulated gimp porn; Amanda Wolf’s Peepshow/ Creepshow combines soft sculpture and video installations to explore the pursuit of erotic pleasure through experiences of anonymity and voyeurism. Focusing on acts masquerade and the allure of the peephole, Wolf responds to these devices as means of gaining an altered experience of the body and entry into denied spaces. Playfully exaggerating the evocative connotations of concealment through vivid costumes and lush hand sewn objects, Peepshow/Creepshow probes the complex relationship between intimacy and spectacle surrounding sexual expression and fantasy.
