Works by Jesse Jones, Lucy Skaer, Claudia Wieser
The concept of value indicates the significance we ascribe to different phenomena and has throughout history been associated with notions such as belief and faith, but also to models for appreciation and speculation in constant flux between the present and the future. Above the rim of the glass catches a moment in time where the surface tension is on the verge of spilling over, balancing on the edge of excess. Mahogany by Jesse Jones tells the story of a fictional city set up in the void of the desert. The work of Lucy Skaer occupies the gap between object and representation, challenging our understanding of material and symbolic values and their changeability. Claudia Wieser's geometrically patterned wallpaper Promenade Geometrique, made out of black and white photocopies, draws its inspiration from handmade stage sets from the expressionistic movies of the 1920s. Opening Friday 8 March, 7-9pm.
