PAUSE II8th March 2021 - 8th April 2021
Location: Brighton City Centre
A temporary exhibition on billboards around the city of Brighton brings together the work of three
local artists for a month this March.
“Pause II”, supported by advertising agency Ground Up Media, showcases pieces by Judith Alder, Helen Goodwin and Simon Roberts and is part of a programme of activities organised by Brighton Artists Network to support artists to bring their practice into public spaces while arts venues remain closed to the public.
The pieces reflect current events and circumstances in subtle and often poetic ways, exploring the more abstract or intimate narratives behind many of the issues 2020 confronted us with. Together they create unexpected, thought-provoking contributions to the urban spectacle, turning the street into a visual platform to encourage conversations around how we are experiencing our new reality living with Covid.
“Impermanent Edge, Edgelandia (2020)” by Helen Goodwin is on display on New England Road.
Judith Alder’s “Cascade: Origins in Parallel (2020)” is on a billboard on Upper Hollingdean Road.
“Shrouded Statue #1 (Antonio Canova‘s Theseus and the Minotaur) (2020)” by Simon Roberts, is on display on Trafalgar Street.
