GOOD GOOD, DOUBLE GOOD
Jul 20 - 23, 2017
The web was meant to be our way out but has just become more corporate than the real. But what is real anymore anyway? The past is now the present. The press has always been biased but is BuzzFeed really that different than the Daily Mail or the Sun? And why is it now that we have the possibility to be free that we are locking ourselves up? We had a glimpse of hope but it’s far away now. Politics has become just another word for perception management. The definitions of truth and knowledge have changed within our lifetimes – but nobody can quite pin down their new meanings. Whistle blowers are becoming this generations rock-stars. But what does it all mean? Meme’s replace movements. Witchcraft over science. A collapsing fašade. A coherent picture that doesn’t add up. Things are good good, double good. Or are they?

Click to enlargeLU MEI/SARA WILLET : IN THE SPACE OF ELSEWHERE
Apr 11 - 22, 2018 FINAL WEEK
In the Space of Elsewhere brings together work by Lu Mei and Sara Willett that responds to the phenomenology of space. The exhibition does not just examine space in terms of cartological location and fixity, but also refers to the realm of poetic space - spaces that exist internally, in memory and imagination.
Both artists have also created site-specific work, which responds to the scale of the exhibition space and the neo-classical architecture of the building.
The exhibition is accompanied by a soundscape by composer John Lunn.

SALT CASTLES
Apr 27 - May 6, 2018
Private view Thu Apr 26 6pm - 9pm
Work by Billy Crosby, Thomas Grieg, Rebecca Guez.
This exhibition brings together each of the artists recent work and puts into dialogue the emphatic materiality and physicality of production, that surrounds their works. With an interest in labour and gesture, as well as object investigation, materials are bitten, squashed, cut, pressed, squeezed, moulded, painted and printed, creating highly charged and affective outcomes.
