Matt Calderwood, Breather
- 25 September — 25 October 2015 *on now
A solo exhibition by Matt Calderwood titled 'Breather' centring around two new video works.
In Breather there is a sense of pressure and release, concealing and revealing the agency at play. The artist is clearly responsible for the scenario and construction but you are aware that there are other forces involved. The experience is compelling as a phenomena but also as something to unravel.
Calderwood often uses industrial materials which are usually employed in construction or manufacturing. For Breather the unleashed forces of nature combined with an elastic membrane work together to create an autonomous, unreal and unknown presence.
In the systems that Calderwood brings into play there is a persistent dialogue between the sculptural form and action. In the actions there is an inevitability, you vaguely know the outcome as they dictate their own trajectories, but you still really want to see what happens. In other sculptural works and works on paper he re-uses motifs such as the interlocking chevrons with the inherent geometric logic determining their combinations and balances.
