Mondegreen Ekphrasis

Mondegreen Ekphrasis - The Collection Just as a pebble thrown into a pond produces a series of ever-expanding rings, visual ripples of inspiration have emanated from great works throughout the history of art. Taking this precedent of emulation as a premise, MA Fine Art and MA Design students from The University of Lincoln are brought together by MA Contemporary Curatorial Practice student Ashleigh McDougall in a new exhibition at The Collection.
The concepts of collaborative practice and appropriation of images and ideas are explored in a changing installation that grow and evolve each week. This will expose the process of ekphrasis; the description of one work of art through the creation of another. With a new piece by lecturer Andrew Bracey as the starting point, the exhibition opens in The Collection’s Courtyard Gallery on 15 April and runs until 12 May, 2013.
Mondegreen Ekphrasis features the work of Shahira Allen, Andrew Bracey, Lewis Gaukrodger, Amir Ghazi-Noory, Diane E. Hall, Victoria Hall, Linda Hollaway, Laura Johnson, Chutatib Promgul, Gemma Rabionet, Jessica Rawlings, Duncan Rowland, Carlos Ruiz Brussain, and Miranda Jingyan Zhang, and is curated by Ashleigh McDougall.
