Bleak House (2020) is a project that Brad Feuerhelm and the Athenian publisher Void have embarked on in which having selected 12 artists, the focus of the “plot” simply revolves around the idea of producing art under the duress of our current crisis.
Without naming the 2020 author directly, the focus of the works selected is to consider how artists respond to the challenges of producing work in an unprecedented time. The aim of which is to examine the moment, the retreat from normality and to reconsider how work is made under new conditions. The artists selected share some common elements in their work, but they have been left to their task with no restraint or larger mandate. It is a proposition in which their only concern is to produce images during the first half of 2020.
