Valeria Madici, Ria Wilson

University of Northampton BAFA student exhibition

20 – 23rd March 2020.

IMMERSIVE EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS AND PROJECTIONS

Valeria Medici and Ria Wilson present a series of works including painting triptychs and digital projections that muse on the artists’ personal narratives, consider themes of desire and navigate their shared religious upbringings.

Valeria Medici is a Sicilian emerging artist whose practice focuses on the externalisation of visceral experiences and sensations with emotionally charged compositions. Dreams and memories merge into fantastical and biblical representations which form and emerge through video and digital mediums.

Ria Wilson is an artist born in and from Northampton. Her work is concerned with theories of both hauntology and ontology. Through these lenses she explores personal narratives and memory always locating them within a wider social context. Here she examines the tensions of family history, mental illness, class, ritual, heritage and desire and the relationships that manifest from that.

Curated by Valeria Medici and Ria Wilson.

The exhibition will be held at Intercession Gallery from 20th – 23rd March 2020.

Exhibition launch on 20th March 7 - 9 pm.

Opening times 21st-23rd March 11 am - 4 pm.
