You Get What You’re Given

In 2016 installation and conceptual artists Catherine Borowski, Lee Baker and Olivia Hegarty presented You Get What You’re Given, a group exhibition of new work at Hoxton Arches.

The show’s title references a Beckettian theme of mortality and the work offers a bleak, tragicomic outlook on human existence. With each artist boldly interpreting the space and bringing intensely personal stories to the viewer, themes of aloneness and the doomed desire to successfully connect with other human beings are expressed.
