materiality group exhibition

berwick gymnasium gallery - march 2017

Featuring works by Alexandra Hughes / Chun-Chao Chiu / Graham Patterson and Helen Pailing. The exhibition was to raised questions on the value of processes in our digital age; looking at relationships between technology and the handmade; whilst examining future use of materials by visual artists. The ‘tactile’ / ‘physical’ processes employed by the artists, alongside the performative aspect of working with material; draws analogies with the buildings previous use as a military training facility.

 

Curated by Graham Patterson. With thanks to Berwick Visual Arts.
