Disrupting Space/Creating Space
Six contemporary sculptors

Sculpture, by its very physicality, disrupts the spaces that we occupy as human beings.

The viewer is forced to engage with the work in an active manner: they change their path to move around it, contort their bodies to peer into it, move through it and observe it from afar. Beyond this physical engagement, the pieces of sculpture on show in this exhibition also force the viewer to reconceptualise their notions of space on a metaphysical level. The works provoke the viewer into questioning how they perceive their own world, both natural and man-made.

This exhibition features the work of Corrigan Fairbairn, William Lungas, Emily McIntosh, Patsy Payne, Morgan Shimeld and Jacek Wankowski. ...more
