and my show. We are having a little publication launch on 8th September to coincide with the closing weekend of the show (link will be in bio) so if you prefer to consume ideas in a more casual, conversational way come along.

GRADATION speaks to the act of making one material look like another material. The exhibition installation was a gradual process of constructing layers and interacting with the particulars of the site to render some materials visible and others invisible. Each spatial intervention and object offers a surface layer that interrogates its own authenticity and the hierarchy of materials it betrays within the context of personal curated environments, like one’s home, office or studio. In these intimate environments idleness, aspiration and personal preference combine to produce a constellation of things that hint at but ultimately conceal our inner lives.
