Bringing the tradition of the 'salon hang' to the smallest gallery in Norwich and featuring over 70 artworks by professional and amateur artists Sardines & Beer explores both the nature of exhibition space and the nature of open submission exhibitions. The exhibition aims to create an overwhelming immersive experience of being completely surrounded by artwork, allowing for the imperfections and serendipity to organically arise from unregulated placement, subject and object of each individual piece. The intended non-curation of the exhibition relies on a pre-devised system and the randomly generated negative spaces hold equal importance in the perception of the space. Through relinquishing all curatorial control the exhibition welcomes each artist's unique voice irregardless of acclaim, experience or area of exploration, leaving the audience to act the the only interpreter of the works' merit.
