“If Art concerns the manifestation of an idea through the handling of material, this exhibition presents a renewed emphasis on the productive gap between practice and product. Tyco track, icing sugar, feather, lard, wood, plaster, paint, paper, porcelain, video and photography: in a seductive array of media, this show highlights the artiwork’s passage from base materiality to symbolic form.”
Artists include: Jacqueline Brown, Jodie Carey, Ruth Claxton, Katarina Forss, Robert Fry, Nick Hornby, Ryan Mosley, Daniel Pasteiner, Boo Ritson and Ceal Warnants.
