AboutThe Multiplicity of a Moment is a two-person exhibition of new works by Laura Eldret and Sarah Williams. The exhibition explores the tensions of a live moment between a viewer, and a series of objects and scenarios, how these interactions are transmitted; from the past, into the future and beyond the gallery parameters.
Williams' works are paired down and minimalist in form drawing attention to the materiality of the surface, while Eldret's works continue her interest in the co-existence of polarities and are derivative of appropriated forms.
Aspiring to a monumental staging of an opera like exhibition, the artists' practices meet in their mutual interest in the inhabiting of the exhibition space by spectators as an intrinsic element to the work. As such these artworks hesitate on the lines of definition; sculpture, props, platforms or something âother'.
The exhibition will be accompanied by an essay by Marianne Mulvey, available at the gallery from 28th October, with live reading on First Thursday, 4 November, 6-9pm.

Five Hundred Dollars is an artist-run space, which opened with the generous support of the Jerwood Charitable Foundation in April 2009. It offers an experimental exhibition space to emerging and established artists for group and one-person shows accompanied by a programme of events.
The Jerwood Charitable Foundation is dedicated to imaginative and responsible revenue funding of the arts, supporting emerging artists to develop and grow at important stages in their careers. The aim of their funding is to allow artists and art organizations to thrive; to continue to develop their skills, imagination and creativity with integrity. They work with artists across art forms, from dance and theatre to literature, music and the visual arts.
