Adult Soft Play

Through sculptural compositions this exhibition examines notions of the playful urbanite and the performance and rituals of monument. Inspired by the continual shift of permanency and the obselete, materials are drawn from the inexpensive yet opulent remnants of our urban environment.

Alongside the exhibition a film deconstructing the artist’s studio practice by Christopher Cook will be shown. This show has been curated by Janine Mathieson.
