Compulsive, Obsessive, Repetitive

Jill Townsley, Till Rolls, 2011

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.
