A week, so the saying goes, is a long time in politics. Two years in Covid is apparently even longer. Originally booked to take place in November 2020 ‘My Kingdom For A Croissant’ will finally be realised in the ‘Real-World’ in November 2021.

PREVIEW
Thursday 25th November | 5:30pm - 7:30pm

Nicholas Vaughan is a Wakefield based artist, whose work often revolves around political themes from British history over the last forty years. For this exhibition he turns his attention to the current situation regarding Brexit and the cultural life of 21st Century Britain, creating for BasementArtsProject a series of wild and satirical sculptures and collages.

As we emerge from a continual series of pandemic lockdowns, ‘My Kingdom For A Croissant (Part II)’ picks up where its online virtual gallery counterpart left off earlier in the year. A dystopian fantasy world populated by characters that seem strangely familiar yet somehow not quite right. This raucous collision of ideas inspired by theme parks, Brexit, Gulliver’s Travels and all overseen by Mayor Larry from Jaws, looks at cultural and racial stereotypes and how migration and racism have become key players in the ongoing culture wars.
