GOTT MATE MUTT
“Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly;
Man got to sit and wonder 'why, why, why?'
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand.”
- Kurt Vonnegut
'Gott Mate Mutt' is an exhibition that explores human nature perceived by the artists in reaction to both Kurt Vonnegut's novel Cat’s Cradle and to current global events. Using Cats’ Cradle as an inspiration the artists including Mary Roberts-Holmes, Jack Friswell, Oliver McConnie, Sam Fleming, Max Naylor and Julian Bell exhibit work focusing on humans’ absurd relationship with destruction.
