The MA Degree Show in Fine Art 2012: "A ride full of traps"

A trap is a device or tactic meant to catch an intruder, enemy, error or substance.

"A ride full of traps" chases you, but with charm. The traps in this exhibition are less costly and less visually offensive than the mousetraps you buy in your local grocery shop. Is there anything in the traps, and what do you know about the people who set them?

Gain insight by investing attention in each individual work. Besides the fact that this is a morbid fascination that affects us all, you will rearrange your perceptions to a feeling of deja vu, moved by such factors as personality, movement, unpleasantness etc. Are they traps, or is it a fantastic attraction?

The odds are that the exhibition will shake you up.A ride full of trapsis guaranteed to pull you out of your comfort zone.

The exhibition shows the ambitiousness and playfulness of our 19 master's students this spring.
