For Want of (not) Measuring brings together artists Patrick Adam Jones and Jim Hobbs who explore the problematic and poetic use of systems and measurement within their work. Where measurement often focuses on quantitative results, the two artists instead choose a more metaphysical approach to exploit the corporeal use of measuring apparatuses to subvert their intended outcome. Surveying sticks, physical grids, light meters (amongst many other tools) are all used to point out the futility, absurdity and impossibility of truly knowing the world around us.
For this exhibition, both artists will present new work including drawings, photographs, objects, sound, and a film/video installation.
