ABOUT '6 SHOWS'
Over the next six weeks BIG RAT .STUDIO will be hosting individual online shows from six artists. These shows will be made in collaboration with the artists and give visitors to the virtual exhibitions a way to immerse themselves in a single artists work. We will be striving to create six diverse pockets of expression; being narrower in their range but altogether deeper as an exploration. Funny, thought-provoking, serene, mournful, angry – shades in between; admixtures and elisions.
