A group show curated by Zayne Armstrong.
Artists were invited to make the same work twice, to be installed in two iterations of the same exhibition, shown simultaneously side by side. Armstrong’s motivation for inviting these particular artists comes primarily form the varied ways in which their work seems to deal with (and in) what might be considered ‘found’ materials, used to oscillate about a kind of particular void or absence.
This show presents a methodology, employed in the curator’s artistic practice, as a means for organising a group show. The installation the same works twice in a single exhibition creates a structure that shows the content of these works does not reside in their (material form), but surrounds it.
The performance Moving Between Two or More Points by Sarah Elliott will take place during the show.
The accompanying publication is made up of two parts. The first acts as an exhibition guide and will be available throughout the show, comprising a selection of pre-existing texts chosen by the artist to stand in as an explanation of their work. The second contains essays written in response to the exhibition by David Cook, Tommy Diamond and Richard John Jones, and will be available at the closing.
