Little episodes - an interdisciplinary exhibition upon the progressive theme of 'killing time'. Little episodes is an exhibition of those fleeting moments and turns of events that shape our escape from monotony. Small acts of individual resistance. The aim of this exhibition is indulging the transient, towards an outcome that is less predictable: not routine but rather exploratory.

What speaks to us seemingly is always the big event, the untoward, the extra-ordinary: the front-page splash, the banner headlines. Aeroplanes only achieve existence when they are hijacked, tidal waves, volcanic eruptions, tower blocks that collapse, forest fires, tunnels that cave in what's really going on, what we're all experiencing, the rest, all the rest, where is it? Georges Perec

This group of artists work in a variety of different styles and across a range of media, bringing site-specific sculpture and video to Permanent Gallery for the first time. For this exhibition and the Brighton Festival, the artists have developed new works from lost days and detours. These new works explore the notion that to waste time or play is not degenerate but revolutionary.
Through having progressively exhibited together, an interrelation has evolved as an ongoing dialogue between their new works. Waiting games are used as an approach to resist dominant culture.

To accompany the exhibition, the artists, curator and gallery are undertaking a series of events that translate the exhibition. The artists and curator are also creating a limited edition multiple that develops and answers questions raised by the exhibition through text, drawing and anything, available in the gallery's bookshop.
