Compulsive, Obsessive, Repetitive
This is a group show of sculptors who obsessively use small scale repetitive processes to create large scale installations.
The exhibition comprises five new commissions by:
- Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva
- Brendan Jamison
- Susie MacMurray
- Jill Townsley
- Henry Seaton (Rex Henry and Graham Seaton)
It also features an earlier work by Claire Morgan.
These artists are motivated by the need to compulsively repeat an action – in a labour intensive and painstaking way – to create a large scale installation composed of multiple elements.
From MacMurray’s sculptural drawing made from corrugated hose to Hadzi-Vasileva’s wall of salmon skins, individual elements are transformed through repetition into something more than the sum of its parts.
