Decision Fatigue, Amber Boardman’s fourth solo exhibition at Chalk Horse, consists of brightly coloured, densely layered works follow on from the general theme in her work which examines crowd behaviour, and the role of the internet in shaping ever-changing social norms.
Boardman began this series of works in September 2019 while researching the phenomena of decision fatigue and the mundane but exhausting amount of choices essential to daily life. All of these little decisions, many of them screen-based, slowly erode energy and willpower throughout the day.
As part of the programming for this exhibition, Amber will host her Virtual Studio Visits events on Zoom from Feb 11 – 13, 2021, free to artists.
"Exhibitions have often felt one-sided to me, so I wanted to devise a way of having a more meaningful dialogue and cultural exchange within a community surrounding an exhibition."
These visits are open to anyone from emerging to established artists. The studio visits can include an informal chat about what you're working on, or Amber can offer assistance on a range of professional development topics from Instagram tips, to raising your artist profile, book recommendations, or advice on grant applications and artist statements.
