About

Examining the use of the absurd and surreal in contemporary art, the exhibition presents works by artists Suzanne Mooney, Pil & Galia Kollectiv, Francesco Pedraglio, Heather Phillipson and Samara Scott. These artists make works that disrupt our understanding and perception of an object, image or text to give rise to new readings and asso­ciations, interfering with our desire to make sense of something and find completeness. Each does this in a different way: by unsettling the viewer through the uncanny use of one material in the place of another, fracturing an image from its original context or making new combinations or juxtapositions of material and concept.
