Hungry Ghosts by Silas Parry and Arabella Hope

Preview: Friday 3 May, 7-9pm
Exhibition Dates: 4-19 May
Opening times - 12-5 pm

Hungry Ghost Engines was first shown at Contemporary Art Space Osaka in October 2018; works and materials from this exhibition will be re-mixed and reiterated at Patriothall.
In this project Silas and Arabella use sculptural installations to critique our environmental, political and social landscapes with a cheeky grin rather than a wagging finger. Their work has resonance on several levels; an ongoing connection to Japan, a playful use of materials, and a vibrant approach to colour.
The concept of hungry ghosts derives from Tibetan Buddhism, and is familiar across Asia… The hungry ghost describes humans caged by intense emotional needs - those consumed by greed and addiction in life, will be condemned to an endless search for satisfaction in the afterlife.
These works explore the driving forces and consequences of compulsion, in the consumerist and technological societies of Scotland and Japan.
