5th - 22nd September
Gallery One: Carolyn Menzies - Morphogenesis
Opening Sept 5th from 6pm.
In Morphogenesis form emerges from the union of the industrial and the handmade.
The title comes from the biological process that causes an organism to develop its shape - a process where form is emergent rather than given in advance.
Witnessing the embryonic development of the fourth industrial revolution we are seeing automation change our future in a way we can't fully understand from our current vantage point.
If steel stands as a signifier in this relentless industrialization, Menzies' use undermines this legacy evoking a structural order that is haptic and organic.
Tenderly crafting the abrasive steel wool and mesh into sculpture, Menzies creates a more mutable manmade world.
