Play During the Pandemic is a group exhibition of mixed-media works by artists Bob Bicknell-Knight, Daniel Tebano, Kialy Tihngang and Matthew Tully. Throughout the exhibition the artists present works in response to an open call brief that explores a different sense of what 'Play' is.
The exhibition combines installation, video, video games and print-based works that explore the transition from traditional to digital modes of play. Each artist’s work invokes notions of playfulness, curiosity, imagination, wellbeing, and participation. The works collectively illustrate daily life and the sense of 'Play' being transformed in the past two years during the Covid-19 pandemic.
