Material Conjectures and Emily Motto are innovative, early career artists working from different philosophical perspectives and linked here through the shared modernist working practice of subverting everyday materials to a new purpose, creating fresh sculptural entities.


Whilst Motto works in an intuitive, sensual tradition with texture and colour as guiding principles, Material Conjectures work with a pre-determined concept rooted in political concerns – the ‘superadjacency’[1] of displacement architectures is their theme for this exhibition.


Showing in the same venue, in two vast spaces with diverse architectural features, two distinct environments emerge within these built spaces. For this project Material Conjectures have invited Gary Woodley to respond to their construction Abandoned Crisis Treatment Facility with his distinctive approach to articulating architectural space.


[1] Superadjacency is the outcome of contradictory forces and violent pressures acting upon and against each other within the rigid framework of architectonic structures… ‘Superadjacency is inclusive rather than exclusive… Superadjacency can exist between distant elements.’
