We would like to invite you to a brunch, artist talk and tour of our latest exhibition INDEX.

About

INDEX explores work by Mike Ballard, Jack EvansMelloney Harvey and Andrea V.Wright in response to the visual language in architecture.

Whether it is work highlighting rampant redevelopment, or concerned with decorative, period, architectural trends, each artist uses transformation, re-invention and documentation to create an index of the impressions made by the semiotics of buildings. 

Decorative bricks from post-war housing estates become cultural icons and then fine art - plasterwork, forgotten interiors of buildings and the detritus of redevelopment are used to create something contemporary and unique, with flashes of history and ubiquity. The mundane is transformed into something crucial and compelling. 

Each work acts as part of an index of remembrance and change in the urban landscape, as well marking when these changes occur. Through this documentation the exhibition becomes a log of objects that are often ignored, but now given a second life or prevalence by contextually inserting them into a sequential arrangement of materials.
