Anna Gatjal: Triangular surface areas

  • 17 November — 17 December 2016 *on now

In ‘Triangular surface areas’ Berlin based sculptor, Anna Gatjal, presents a new installation that explores the complex relationship between the material world with its physical limitations and the seemingly unlimited possibilities of the mathematical and virtual realm. The installation continues Gatjal’s fascination with the sublime beauty and symmetry of classical geometry. The five ‘Platonic solids’ and the thirteen ‘Archimedean solids’, named after the Greek philosophers Plato and Archimedes who postulated that the universe and all the elements within it were constructed from these regular solids.

Nick Fox: Half-light

  • 17 November — 17 December 2016 *on now

‘Half-light’ brings together a body of work created by Nick Fox over the last three years, including new paintings, sculptures and cyanotype prints. The works function as a mirror to the artist’s emotional life, charting Fox’s enduring motivations of longing, desire, seduction, love and loss.

His work is informed by an interest in folklore and myth and layered with literary references, in particular the writings of Oscar Wilde and French novelist Joris-Karl Huysmans, giving rise to a keen sense both of the pleasures and the limits of double meanings in the construction of codes.
