No one is ever going to give you the education you need to overthrow them

Humorously nodding to Dutch interior painting but also referencing the checker board Lino that Mckenzie found in his flat when he first moved into the estate where this exhibition is presented, No One Is Ever Going To Give You The Education You Need To Overthrow Them is a chaotic jumble of works that fight for space and attention. Drawings plastered to the wall, cardboard, hastily made paintings and found materials. The clichés of estate living are all here, discarded mattresses, gas bottles, a throw away BBQ set but also the claustrophobia of close quarter living, spaces that are managed and bound in the red tape of bureaucracy. The whole exhibition feels temporary and that it could all be swept away at any moment. to become yet more detritus. The laughing men in suits with their big grabbing hands are never far away from the borders of the estate with their cost-effective planning suggestions and ever more pernicious strategies of privatisation. But there is also deep joy to be found in these instrumentalized spaces, small resistances that force their way through like a flower growing through concrete...ahh...more clichés....
