EVATOR GALLERY PRESENTS: BEN WOODESON : CAUSALITY

About

Elevator Gallery presents Causality Ben Woodeson Private view: 18.30 — 21.30 on Friday 30th September 2011 Elevator Gallery's forthcoming solo exhibition presents Ben Woodeson's deliberately dangerous sculptures, including works from the Health & Safety Violation series and the new Causality series. Woodeson's sculptures are brutally performative; they inhabit a particular moment of action and subsequent reaction. Their physical activity instigates an intense and visceral relationship with the viewer and the gallery architecture. Ripples of consequence are sent throughout the sculptures and audience alike. Woodeson's skilful manipulation of materials in space challenges the viewer to respond to a unique environment of cause and effect. The works spin, roll, wobble, fall, flick, collapse, shatter and even ignite… but when? The control systems are automatic, random and frequently self- destructive. Some works are calm, stable and self-contained whilst others confront the viewer with overtly catastrophic outcomes. The nature of the sculptures means that the exhibition will continuously evolve and no two visits will be the same. Causality runs from 31.09.11 until 16.10.11 Open Friday to Sunday 12.00 — 17.00 P.V. 30th September 2011, 6.30 — 9.30pm Elevator Gallery Floor Five, Mother Studios, Queens Yard, White Post Lane Hackney Wick, London E9 5EN W. www.elevatorgallery.co.uk T. 0784 965 1993 E. info@elevatorgallery.co.uk www.woodeson.co.uk --
