How do we know what games are being played?
How do we make the next move forward?
Re-Assemble is an exhibition that looks at ideas and processes of structure against the particularly precarious and fractured current political backdrop. In the UK and beyond positions are being constantly remapped, with many seeking to exert control over shifting ground and chance possibilities and outcomes. In a state of uncertainty and without reliable information, what move do we make? How can we navigate, chart or reconstruct this faltering landscape?
Works by eighteen artists circulate around a range of themes, from disruption, translation and reconfiguration to systems, grids and game playing. Paintings, sculptures, textiles and photography physicalise elements of risk, the provisional, the fictional and the imagined. Objects, materials and places are taken apart and re-assembled to test methodologies and envision hybrid spaces. Thinking and making tread new paths through ambiguity.
