Independent artist collective, LOOSEgroup artists launches new show 'Are you Human' at Cob Gallery

LONDON.- If a human can be inhuman, what occupies the space in-between?

‘Are You Human’ is an exhibition of contemporary art that invites visitors to question their own sense of humanity. Organised and curated by independent London artist collective LOOSEgroup artists, the show, held at the Cob Gallery, Camden – founded by curator Victoria Williams and playwright Polly Stenham – is the next instalment in their programme of exhibitions.

For the show, a group of invited artists take a figurative step outside of their bodies and patterns of behaviour to examine our own human qualities. Working in a variety of media, they explore issues of memory, instinct, the beginning and ending of life, the unpredictable and the genetically inevitable, sentient technology and alternative existence.

The artists question whether the qualities that make us human can be defined by a simple moral judgement. Or can our sense of 'being human' be measured by other people or our circumstances? And is it something fixed – or fluid?

In responding to some of these themes, the works invite us to ask ourselves: what do we really mean when we say that we feel alive?

Exhibiting artists include Danish visual artist and minimal expressionist, Thomas Lindvig – in a rare London appearance – whose specially commissioned sculptural objects examine the delicate and pivotal relationship between mother and child.

LOOSEgroup artists is a newly established wholly independent not for profit collective that organises open-access shows for new and established creatives. Shows are curated by theme, with artists at any stage of their career eligible to submit work for inclusion.
