‘What country, friends, is this?’
Imagine. You’re shipwrecked in a storm. You’re washed onto the shores of an unknown country. What does the idea of a country mean to you then? Now imagine what a country means to its citizens. Is it simply the territory the citizens lay claim to? Or does a country lay claim to them? Or both? We’re living in a time when agitation about ideas of nationhood are fuelling forms of extremism. The artists in What Country offer renewed space for us to re-think and re-imagine the structures of the world we share.

An eclectic mix of painting, sculpture and textiles from a group of artist practitioners based in and around Cambridge, STRAY was founded in 2011 with the unifying aim to ‘stray’ beyond visual and idealogical comfort zones and to promote the artists’ work to a wider public audience. In this exhibition, the artists’ aim is to challenge convention, so do go along if you are curious and enjoy seeing work that is inviting, provocative, tantalizing, suggestive, inspiring, controversial, illuminating… but never dull!
