Lockdown Slop is an online exhibition running alongside a publication posted to communities around Gt Yarmouth, sharing the work of five amazing artists based in East Anglia. Like the rest of the UK, our plans over the last year have been turned upside down. This project is a way of responding to the closures and confinement we’re currently facing, a way to bring contemporary art directly into people’s homes, when staying in (and the accompanying monotony) is our only constant. The five artists featured are Nicky Deeley, Maddie Exton, Matthew Challenger, Bob Bicknell-Knight and Georgia Green. Their work spans very different artforms, subject matters and styles, but all represent fresh and compelling contemporary arts practice taking place in the countryside.
With this project Slop hopes to connect with people through isolation, and share something different, at a time when every day is the same.
