People who have saved this event:


The first exhibition in Hardwick Gallery's 2016-17 curated programme explores the transformative processes and sculptural properties of metamorphic materials.


Lathwood and Settemsdal investigate material processes with an alchemical approach from opposite ends of the material spectrum. Lathwood’s practice currently investigates the sculptural properties of dense materials such as iron, bronze and rock whereas Settemsdal explores more ephemeral materials like wax, gelatine and plaster.  The metamorphic properties of these substances feed into their process-led practices.  Both artists share a fascination with the shifting boundaries where known reality blurs into the fictional, and how this has impacted our understanding of the world throughout history.
