Following a 12 day visual arts residency at Stamford Arts Centre Gallery, Art Pop-Up present Once Upon a Time, a collaborative exhibition at the City Gallery including work by artists Sue Shields, Sheelah Mahalath Bewley, Sam Roddan, Anu-Laura Tuttelberg and Laura Barnard. Exploring themes of fairy tales and folklore the work delves into narratives and symbolism, touching upon stories by the Grimms’ and ancient mythologies. Twisting the conventions of renowned fables, the artists address contemporary issues of environmental damage, shifting perceptions of good and evil and revising views on consumption and mass production. As with every tale there is a moral to the story and truth beyond the surface. How do your actions affect the world around you?
