Alison Unsworth: Things to think with

  • 29 October — 13 December 2014 *on now

For her first solo exhibition with Vane, Alison Unsworth presents new work created during the last six months that displays her longstanding fascination with the built environment.

In her digital prints objects and creatures are isolated from their context and presented as items for consideration or examination, reminiscent of exhibits in a museum.

The exhibition includes a series of small sculptures created from ornaments which have had their focal point removed, leaving just the base behind as inspiration for a new landscape which Unsworth has created by adding small details.

Suitable for

  • Any age

Matthew Smith: Erratic Landscapes

  • 29 October — 13 December 2014 *on now

For his second solo exhibition at Vane, ‘Erratic Landscapes’, Matthew Smith has conceived a multi-layered landscape of works, a hybrid of the manmade and natural environment that examines the intersections between these two polarities.

The Erratic Landscape sculptures, the series of Cloud drawings and Corporate Landscape drawings are carefully layered together, immersing the viewer in a landscape of representation, a terrain to be negotiated both physically and conceptually.
