About

In this art exhibition, titled ‘Faulty Towers', a diverse group of artists and musicians have come together to investigate how art, music and other creative genres incorporate structures and systems that have direct parallels with architecture. Towers have become a re-occurring building type in virtually every major city around the world. These often begin life as shiny and glamorous icons but after a time, unforeseen constructional and planning defects sometimes render them unusable - they may even have to undergo major refurbishment or need to be completely demolished. Thus towers often represent both a celebration and disillusionment about mankind's future. The creative works that are being displayed are a mixture of both serious and humorous pieces, that attempt to engage with the common underpinnings found in nature and the environment, with the structural, mathematical and proportioning systems of the man-made world. Some of the artists propose elegant and perhaps impossible new construction or sometimes deconstruction, whilst others combine ad-hoc marks, or hybrid and collaged shapes which mimic natural generative and regenerative processes. In this exhibition each artist explores their own personal reaction to this theme, leaving the viewer to ponder their own, inevitably uncertain future
