Oblivion

7 August - 7 November

‘Oblivion’ is a word heavy with meaning and the threat thereof is central to the contemporary mindset.

Further to the migrant experience and fears of pending ecological and societal collapse, our complex digital lives can also elicit significant issues and outcomes.

There is a significant movement of artists using craft and the hand-made as a response to these circumstances rather than blindly turning away. They utilise familiar, less alienating tools, skills and mediums to communicate complex ideas.

Artists are uniquely placed to interrogate these issues as they can offer fresh, personal, empathetic and engaging perspectives on complex topics.

Gallery Hours: Monday – Sunday: 10am – 4pm
