Featuring The Common Sense van Melanie Gilligan

Affect was central to Up Close and Personal. Art has the ability to immediately touch the viewer, a sensation preceding language and thought. This affective power, which cannot easily be described, is increasingly fading into the background in these times dominated by technology, rationalism and efficiency. The artists in Up Close and Personal deal with the theme of ‘affect’ in various ways, and the intimate (wordless) dialogue between viewer and work takes centre stage.
