Pump House Gallery presents a group exhibition based on Graham Greene’s novel It’s a Battlefield. Greene’s book, written and based in Wandsworth, takes on ideas of administrative power, disempowerment of the individual and the impact of bureaucratic structures on the individual when misused. The artists in the exhibition evoke both the thematic concerns and the narrative essence of the book. By investigating areas such as the voice and agency, political structures and individuals, labour and language, the work in the exhibition locates the individual in the confusing world of bureaucracy.
