EDINBURGH.- Here Comes Everybody is an exhibition of work by kennardphillipps, the collaborative practice of London-based artists Peter Kennard and Cat Phillipps. It includes a major new installation consisting of an accumulation of photographic imagery, photomontage, digital prints and found newspapers, exploring ideas around image consumption, production and surveillance. From 1 - 31 August, the exhibition will extend to an off-site space in the St James’ Shopping Centre where kennardphillipps will run their acclaimed War on War Room, co-commissioned by a/political, London.

kennardphillipps show their work in public spaces of all kinds ranging from the street, museums, galleries, newspapers, magazines and the internet. Here Comes Everybody will represent a continuation of their interest in making work that is a critical tool connected to international movements for social and political change: "We don’t see the work as separate to social and political movements that are confronting established political and economic systems. We see it as part of those movements, the visual arm of protest."

kennardphillipps formed in 2003 in response to the invasion of Iraq. Their work has been included in the recent exhibitions: After Image, Galeria Civica, Trento, Italy, (2015); Caught in the Crossfire, Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, Coventry (2013-15) and LIVING WITH WAR: Artists on war and conflict, GoMA, Glasgow (2013).

War on War Room
Location: St James’ Shopping Centre
1 - 31 August 2015
Monday – Sunday, open daily 11am – 5pm

kennardphillipps will be running their War On War Room throughout August in a shop unit in the St James’ Shopping Centre.

The aim of this project is to work with people of all ages and backgrounds to show that art can be used to express both personal and socio/political feelings and beliefs through the use of everyday materials. Reconfiguring the images seen everyday online, in print and on the street, ripping them from their original contexts and thereby taking ownership of these images rather than merely consuming them, the artists demonstrate that everybody can stamp their own perspectives on found material.
