Artists: Allsopp and Weir, Simon Faithfull, Seamus Harahan, Moira Lovell, Elizabeth McAlpine, Ginny Reed.

Curated by Laura Cooper and Connelly La Mar in partnership with the British Council Thailand and Chulalongkorn University Bangkok.

“Desaturated” is a group show of seven contemporary British artists focused around ideas of subtraction, vacancy and false referents in society. These themes are teased out through video works, installations and photographs dealing with the use of colour and memory. Works hit on a variety of poignant themes specific to the UK, but with global resonance at this point in history, such as the use of colour in relations to simmering political tension in Northern Ireland, sexuality in contemporary fetishized British schoolgirl culture and using black voids to break up the floor space of the gallery.
