About

Tom Badley : Richard Box : Elaine Breen : Doug Clark : Julie Cockburn : Roger Hiorns : Nick Mobbs : Bouke de Vries : Daphne Wright In the Book of Genesis, Lot's Wife was petrified —transformed into a ‘pillar of salt' — during an instant of disobedience. In that momentary transgression, she lost her humanness. But her physical substitution made her immortal as a symbol, perpetuating her identity even as it eclipsed it. The works in this exhibition take familiar objects or materials and through a variety of ministrations make them into something new which, crucially, retains a vestige of their former identity. Like Lot's Wife, the exact process and purpose of the transformation is shrouded in mystery, but elevates the original components to a new status.
