#OFMArtBeat - Grounded - Art under lockdown
The artworks were made before and during lockdown and the initial idea of being grounded originates from the idea of being grounded at home during the lockdown. Grounded in the sense of being restricted and being tied down by an authority operating above the self. However, the meaning of the term “grounded” also suggests having a sagacious ability, thus to make good decisions and an admirable and unpretentious understanding on issues. The valence of the term is embedded within its potential conflicted meanings and offers an energy suitable for an exhibition taking place amidst the Covid 19 pandemic.
