unperceived existence explores the interplay between existence and perception through a series of solo exhibitions for women artists.

unperceived existence calls into focus women’s position within the arts and perceptions of their work. Do we cease to exist if we are not represented?

Follow us throughout the series as each artist takes over our Instagram account for the duration of their exhibition.


‘I love the concept of U.E. and it’s great to see the space, today, through electronic means. One interesting response was that I found I enjoyed the ‘gallery visit’, one which I probably wouldn’t have made time to do physically, and that it was an appreciated creative interlude in my morning, which otherwise wouldn’t have happened. It was quite an intimate experience, as I felt compelled to read through, whereas I may have responded to the works physically before learning about them, were I in a real space…’

Jo Pond, jeweller and lecturer at The School of Jewellery, Birmingham, UK.
