Blink - an innovative two-person show featuring the work of Midlands-based visual artists, Dan Auluk and Sally Bailey. Both artists are currently studying MA Fine Art at The School of Art at Birmingham City University, whilst simultaneously working as emerging art practitioners. Although this partnership was initially formed to present new works for summative assessment, Auluk and Bailey began to explore the possibilities of reconsidering this exhibition as a valid piece of work for public viewing. By presenting two solo shows together, the disparity of the artworks on display, and the ideas that inform that work are given room to overlap and coalesce.
This immersive exhibition will take place at The Works Gallery in Digbeth. Both Auluk and Bailey maintain independent art studios within and close to the gallery, and feel a genuine affinity with this slowly regenerating post-industrial landscape. In recent years this has become the recognised hub of artist-led spaces and initiatives in Birmingham, of contemporary installation and artworks, of critical and cutting edge inquiry.
