“What Suparak has done for me is to restore my sense that cool can work as a powerful rhetorical device… She uses her personal voice and her institutional power to give permission to speak to those who might not have believed they had it.”
“Given my prejudices, I found Faux Naturel – a group show celebrating some of the many wonderful ways artists have contrived to recreate woodland splendours, but without all the mucky bits – just my kind of walk in the park… Faux Naturel reminded the sensible viewer (and me) that, exotic and mysterious as nature may be, it’s best left to its own devices.”
This exhibition focuses on the psychological, social, cultural and political dimensions of desire, subjectivity, and pleasure.
Winter Light revels in the fleeting aesthetics of winter, presenting works that document ice melting, crystals forming, stars twinkling, birds migrating, surreal dreaming, the loss of consciousness and the warmth of a flame.
This exhibition celebrates crystallized precipitation as the key to a delightful set of activities, and as an ephemeral filter to make ordinary surroundings new again.
These artists explore the territory delineated by the destruction of the natural world, with all its attendant themes. Entropy, redemption, apocalypse, the temptations of commercial culture, and the relationship between science and magic all emerge as motifs in this exhibition.
