Tipping the scales is the inaugural exhibition presented by Kieran Leach and Precious Innes under the moniker Show.me.up. The curatorial duo will program a series of exhibitions, the first of which will take place in the Paradise Works Gallery.

About

With an emphasis on sculptural work, the exhibition features UK based artists at various stages in their careers. Throughout the show there is a sense of art imitating life, as the artists tackle notions of work, play and societal pressures. From daily routines and ingrained behaviours to social tropes and leisure pursuits, the group show concerns the perfect balancing act we all aim to achieve in life. The use of humour runs throughout, exposing coping mechanisms we use to deal with the uncertainty of an unstable existence. Elements of the works induce a sense of nostalgia, a look back to simpler times perhaps, exemplifying notions of childlike escapism. The show acts a survey of our collective consciousness, and endeavours to physically manifest our attitudes towards matters that sit upon the scales of life.
