‘Is It Over’ is an exhibition from a selection of emerging contemporary artists reacting site specifically to the conceptual and physical properties of a derelict World War II bunker situated underground in Dalston, East London. The Bunker sets the stage for the selected artists to create a platform in which we can trace through their work the links across their practices and disciplines creating a dialogue between contemporary art and a space that has been long forgotten.
The bunker was built during World War II amidst the modern art movement and remained unused and derelict from that point on. The exhibiting artists and their practice carry with them the characteristics and lineage of contemporary art into a space that closed its doors sixty years ago. This exhibition hopes to engage with a space of the past and resuscitate it with the creative ambitions of the present.
