IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES focuses on three contemporary artists who make use of familiar objects, images and samples from everyday life to disconcert the viewer, and question the relational quality of meaning. Through their individual practices, and using disparate media they explore the Unheimlich (Unhomely) and the way it penetrates the everyday. Jenny Lu, for example, uses video to examine suicide in a clinical and emotionally distant manner, while Miranda Lopatkin creates haunting images that combine the domestic with a ghostly human presence.

Their work also examines romance and idealism and how assumptions and values of this nature can easily be confounded. Jenny Clarke uses questions quoted from recent number one hit songs, which when gathered together question social and cultural values.

Together the artists interrogate the relationship between art, and cultural and social identity.

Jenny Clarke, Jenny Lu and Miranda Lotpatkin are all graduates of the Central Saint Martins MA Fine Art course.
