Art exhibition is a huge success

Multimedia artist, James Chantry, has launched an exhibition exploring tragedy and death in the Watch This Space gallery.

The show, named ‘Yes No Neither’, was launched last Monday and runs for one further week in the basement of independent bohemian shop, Watch This Space.

Exhibition founder, James Chantry, said: “I’ve tried to create an atmosphere where the person can experience what I see. When walking round, I’ve aimed to make it sinister to represent the dark underbelly of multimedia.

“The work is about representation of tragedy in new media, it’s not a critique nor a praise, more of an examination of how we perceive disaster today.

In order to appreciate the exhibition fully, a necessary route is planned for the audience.

The gallery has been busy with spectators admiring Mr Chantry’s work.

Manager of Watch This Space, Samira Jamaale, said: “It’s so great to be involved in a project like this. The exhibition is eye-opening, and has attracted all different people, so Leicester locals should come check it out.

“I personally am a great fan of Mr Chantry’s work, so it’s an honour to have him showcase this in our shop. Watch This Space has hosted many events, but this has been incredibly successful with many art enthusiasts.”

“The basement provides the perfect set up, being so dark and dingy. This creates a brilliant atmosphere and exaggerates what Mr Chantry has aimed to do.”

The exhibition, on Silver Walk in St. Martin’s Square, is open seven days a week and will end on November 7. For more information, visit http://wtsgallery.weebly.com/oct.html
