This exhibition brings together six artists who use distinct approaches to the positioning of self in relation to material culture. Working across sculpture, printmaking and installation their practices are tied together through shared interests in fragmented bodies, anatomised commodities, alternative histories and questions of gender. Semi-gloss, Semi-permeable takes place in a newly completed office development. This shiny, pared-back space combines polished steel floors, pale precast concrete and tall panelled windows. Bright colours, monumental forms and intricate assemblages hum together as works are brought into conversation through a series of encounters between material and form.
