About

This exhibition is the result of a collaboration between artists Ania Wawrzkowicz, Brigit Hegarty and Ruth Hanahoe the curator of Printhouse Gallery. Working experientially the artists have responded to each others working techniques, incorporating ideas of constructivism whilst mainly being inspired by Vorticism.
The art works were made using the method of Process Art, using easily accessible and found objects to initially create quick temporal pieces that were photographed and developed into sculptures and eventually installations. Some of the installations incorporate the integral architecture of the Print House Gallery building and explore the entirety of the space. 'Group X' was a brief attempt by artist Wyndham Lewis to revive the Vorticist movement in 1920. It was partially influenced by Cubism but favoured a more bold, energetic and geometric style. We have revisited this genre of work by contextualising the pieces which reflect and translate the original inspirations - dynamism, the machine age and all things modern. Artists Ania Wawrzkowicz and Brigit Hegarty explore the motion, vitality and matrix of lines in response to Vorticism. Crossing the boundries between different mediums from drawing to installation they use an experimental, playful and contemporary approach creating geometrical pathways.
The exhibition is part of the London Design Festival 14th ' 22nd September 2013
