"Faltering Flame - Aspects of the Human Condition in Contemporary Art"
2005-02-09 until 2005-05-07
Sheffield Galleries and Museum Trust, Graves Art Gallery
Sheffield, , UK United Kingdom

An exhibition that investigates the human psyche through contemporary art will be on display at the Graves Art Gallery, Sheffield from 9 February - 7 May 2005. Faltering Flame will include the 2004 Turner Prize winning work, Memory Bucket by Jeremy Deller alongside contemporary works from established and emerging British artists. The exhibition will explore questions about the human identity and our scientific and psychological make-up: the fears, hopes, dreams and anxieties of the human condition.

Faltering Flame will be curated by David Thorp who has been Curator of Contemporary Projects at the Henry Moore Foundation, Hertfordshire since 2001. David was active in the development of the contemporary art scene in the East End of London, first as the Director of the Chisenhale Gallery, then at The Showroom, and from 1992 until 2001 as Director of the South London Gallery.

The exhibition will be divided in to 4 sections: The World, Life, Death and Dreams. Each section will show work in a variety of media including video, photography, sculpture in bronze, and oil on canvas. Faltering Flame will include work by some of the most renowned British artists of recent times, including Tracy Emin, Gilbert and George and Jake and Dinos Chapman.

Faltering Flame: Aspects of the Human Condition in Contemporary Art will complement Tate Sculpture: The Human Figure in British Art from Moore to Gormley which will be running concurrently at Millennium Galleries. Whilst Tate Sculpture is concerned with the external appearance of the body and the human form, Faltering Flame will look at the inner being. It will investigate those things that we, as beings, sense about ourselves but that are normally invisible: our sense of self.
