From top to bottom: 1-2 Gurmit // 3-5 Sarah Randles // 6 So Young Moon
The BA Fine Art degree show from Chelsea College of Art and Design included Gurmit's "Inside Out" sculpture, a huge site-specific golden sausage presented in a reddish-dark room, which made me feel as if I was standing inside of a body. Gurmit, who is also a trained goldsmith, has applied thousands of golden stickers onto the archaic intestine, which made it appear even more alive. Sarah Randles' amazing bird drawings, and the human birdhouse containing only one light-ball and one drawing of a wrapped-in human being, had a touch of a reinterpretation of Kafka's Metamorphoses. And So Young Moon (what a great name) put an emphasis on consistency, exhibiting stuffed out gloves, over-over-over sized shirts and plain clothes with personal inscriptions.
