CALL OUT FOR ARTISTS
'double lives:duple trials' Exhibition
A 'double life' conventionally is a life of two
identities where one is simultaneously involved
in two sets of circumstances and retains the
secrecy of one from the other.
The exhibition hopes to explore these two sets
exposing the dichotomies of fiction and reality,
mirror images and opposing forces. 'Double lives'
cater for a parallel existence whether it
portrays deceiving acts or insatiable actions and
can as subtle as a pen name or as exaggerated as
the secret identity of a super hero; ultimately
why are they adopted?
Rene Descartes and Gilbert Ryle both contest from
separate perspectives that our biographies- mind
and body- are divided but can along in parallel
without being the same entity.
Artists are invited to submit work which
investigates the functions of duality, such as
alter egos, multiple personalities, parallel
universes, secret relationships but where double
lives exist, privately or publicly.
The exhibition will take place at the Malt Cross,
16, St James St, Nottingham
in February 2011.
All media will be considered but is steering
towards alternatives such as, projections, slide
shows, interventions and installations
Please note that the submission process is free
but if artists are selected they are required to
pay a £20 administration fee.
To apply please send up to 3 jpeg images and an
approximately 50 word statement about how the
work links to the theme to

Diana Ali (Curator of 'double lives: duple trials')
