M I L K are pleased to present Semi-Functioning Artists, an exhibition of works by Ash Howland-Davenport and Matt Wilkinson.
Working across photography, sculpture and installation, both artists explore the notion of artistic identity by contemplating what it is to maintain and develop creative practices post art-school. Inspired by Lubaina Himid’s reference to her “wilderness years” within her 2017 Turner Prize acceptance speech, Howland-Davenport and Wilkinson use satire and a sense of childlike play to confront the theme of artistic direction.
Semi-Functioning Artists will feature new work from both artists specially made for this exhibition.
