Little man Your Time is now, is the first exhibition presented by White Elephant Contemporary Art, a new gallery, based temporarily, in Morecambe’s Arndale Centre.

‘Is a new art gallery in Morecambe another white elephant? ‘White Elephant Contemporary Art’ hope not!

The gallery opens with a preview of ‘Little Man your time is Now’ on Saturday 10th March at 4.00 pm, featuring work from the Kondras Kollective and Hungarian artist Oulan Nagardo, with the support of the the ‘Rabo Karabekian Foundation for the Arts’, ‘East Street Arts‘ and the ‘Arndale Centre for Cultural Consumerism’.   The gallery, based in Morecambe’s Arndale Centre, will be open Fridays and Saturdays and by appointment for the month.
The gallery will continue thereafter with a programme of rolling art exhibitions.’
‘White Elephant Contemporary Arts’ is, temporarily,  based in Morecambe’s Arndale Centre.
‘Little Man was inspired by the discovery of an ancient, two-inch tall figure, during house renovations and examines the possibilities we all have for, both, evil and good.
East Street Arts are based in Leeds and are committed to turning unused retail and business spaces over for cultural furtherment of the arts, more can be seen here: eaststreetarts.org.uk

“Impressions, fragments, memories of places. How often has one seen a gem, an oddity, a surprise, a piece of information, an idea only for it to dissolve in the memory and be forgotten? A visual encounter lost forever. When, where, and how did the ” Little Man” arrive in my life, and more importantly, what is he? A talisman, a mascot, a gargoyle, an amulet, a totem, a lucky, or unlucky charm. I have no idea… a conundrum, but inexplicably important in my world. The project is not only about my relationship with this historic artefact, but about size, scale, importance and power. One black dot on a sheet of white paper is insignificant, a million black dots become black paper.”

This exhibition is a larger, expanded exhibition of the show seen earlier this year The Hothouse.
