About

Plonk 

Def: 

Sit down heavily or carelessly 

2) To play unskilfully 

Spruce, to primp, grooming, and tarting up. 

Here are just some of the phrases that are optimistic within ‘Plonk’ - an exhibition of the dank, the dingy. From Duchamp’s urinal, to the collages of rubbish from Tim Noble and Sue Webster, the concept of waste and the uninviting is firmly engrained within contemporary culture. ‘Plonk’ is an exhibition that sits comfortably within this tradition - offering artists a ‘hard-featured’ and ‘misshapen’ hovel to display their work, whether they decide to beautify, or horrify within its context.
