materiality

Group Exhibition. The Gymnasium Gallery, Berwick upon Tweed, Northumberland. March 2017

With kind thanks to Berwick Visual Arts for use of the gallery space.

 

Featuring works by - Alexandra Hughes / Chun-Chao Chiu / Graham Patterson / Helen Pailing.

 

The exhibition 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.
