Maybe it’s the weather

Bringing together the works of Brontë Jones, Natasha Lall and Sophie Durand, Maybe it’s the weather explores interpersonal relationships, longing to fulfill a fantasy, and overwhelming desires for love and intimacy. Rather than concerning certain individuals, being in love, or heartbreak; the exhibition examines fancified ideas of love, longing or wanting to be in a space of where something could/have be[en]. 


Maybe it’s the weather 
is a reminder that there are other reasons for feeling, which can be external from individuals and experiences. It is a realisation that everything is connected, and certain circumstances can exacerbate emotional responses to situations. The works in this exhibition repeat and prolong actions, thoughts, or utterances after the stimulus that prompted it has ceased. But maybe it’s ok, maybe it’s the weather, nobody cares forever.

Brontë work ‘Mama (Sometimes I want to play the part of the one who doesn’t wait) that echoes though the show can be listened to here.
