Rejection is painful to feel, to see, or worse, to do. It comes in different forms, it streams in different lives and it's happening every day everywhere in the world. Some people might have the power to control or choose what to be accepted. But is it all, is it that simple? As an individual, how do you confront it? As an artist, what impact would rejection have on you? How does it make you feel?
"The Rejects" is looking for two things:
1. Artistic expressions concerning the theme in the body of work
2. Unsuccessful entries and works that have not been selected in other curated shows.
"I'm just an individual who doesn't feel that I need to have somebody qualify my work in any particular way. I'm working for me." ― David Bowie. For that, we hope it will give us a chance to better understand the story and the feeling behind the cold standard font message on the computer screen. We want to bring together the 'ejected' works and re-insert them and we encourage the artist to come up with a response (literally in text i.e email) as a footnote to the artwork.
Deadline: 20 May 2019
Medium: any medium is accepted but only audio and/or visual format will be displayed
