Art about art and paintings about paint: there's nothing new there. 34% Pork's four young artists follow this almost unavoidable model, but without dedicating what they do to the well-known theories of decades gone by. Exploring paint's ability to mimic itself, the work sits between gaudy, stylish and thoughtful. Featuring 2 -dimensional work alongside liquid sculpture and velvet-lined boxes, the show brings paint away from the canvas, undermining the medium and celebrating it at the same time. 34% Pork is a serious salute to paint itself; as a material, as a device, as colour, as surface, and the spin-offs into cultural substance that it can bring about. It's about enjoyment without irony, an interest in the world through paint.
