RENDER PERMANENT
Jun 14 - 23, 2019
Zanny Mellor, Kasper Pincis, Nick Scammell, Translating objects and experiences through physical intervention, three artists question the limits and promises of permanence. Legibility is challenged as boundaries and mediums are blurred. Time becomes malleable in their hands, their artworks acting as physical and temporal punctuation.
Zanny Mellor uses painting and photography to address themes of speed, light and time, in a sensory exploration of place.
Kasper Pincis plays with the contradictions inherent in trying to produce original pieces of work on copying equipment, and inhabiting a space somewhere between the heroic and the mundane.
Nick Scammell examines the frailty and impermanence of media, via surface and word.
Generating extended instants through repeated combinations and interventions, each artist adapts ageing technology to new ends.

Sep 20 - 28, 2019
Private view Thu Sep 19 6pm - 9pm
And in me too the wave rises brings together the work of four artists who investigate materiality in an attempt to expand notions of space, time, process and participation. Their work identifies with touch and notions of ‘being in touch’ as vital to how we de-centre the locus of self in order to face our problematic relations with each other and with our planet. They explore ideas around the nature of membranes, inner and outer-ness, states of emerging and disintegrating and the narrative of presence - offering a space in which materials become unstable and are subject to rupture and change.
