A curatorial, consultancy and project management platform for contemporary art.
TURN OF EVENTS
As journalism increasingly resorts to sensationalising ’news’ as cataclysmic, or worse still apocalyptic, Turn of Events looks at where the threshold of a moment elicits change - be that a
pandemic, political upheaval, climate catastrophe or otherwise - and how
one receives, measures, and records this transition.
Blincoe uses the sculptural form and photographic medium in a study of
metamorphosis and infinite becomings. Ellie
Chalmers-Robinson’s paintings are simultaneously controlled and
unyielding, moving between moments of lucidity and disorder, hints
at the presence of a space between opposites. Through
abstraction, fieldwork, site interventions and studio research, James
Geurts focuses on the way that cultural and natural forces
intersect to shape not only landscape but perception itself. Madeleine
Preston’s work speaks to the cannon of ceramic history and the
specificity of the material by celebrating the kiln’s ability to bend
and buckle form, and equally hold moments in time and gesture.
