A Description of the Visible brings together two artists that explore ideas of meaning and knowledge, how images and objects are understood and organised, and what structures determine this meaning.


Daniel Twist questions relationships between images and context through the creation of books, binding incidental observations, discoveries, and materials together to form narratives. Each of his publications are reflections on how information is discovered and understood and are attempts to direct and manage knowledge, causing the viewer to reflect on the nature of research and learning.

Miriam Mallalieu’s sculptures also explore the organisation of knowledge. She questions the structures and hierarchies that determine how things are understood, and the power that lies within the notion of Order. Mallalieu’s work explores the conflict within organisation: to order things in one way is to disorder them in another.
