Curated by Will Lunn in conversation with David Rickard
Historically, alchemy was the primary model for the scientific exploration of materials and although it is now largely perceived as the quest for turning base metals into gold, the practice of alchemy was concerned with a much wider sphere of knowledge. In fact it is from alchemy that much of modern science has evolved.
The exhibition brings together a range of artists that have and are developing works which critically engage with the material properties from which they are made; allowing and encouraging transformation and transmutation to take place within the physical properties and also the conceptual reception of each work.
Hours: Thursday – Sunday, 13.00 – 17.00 and by appointment.
