iCal

Away from the roar of the sea the island was quieter than the valley at home, completely silent and terribly, terribly old.” (Tove Jansson, 1948)

The artists in this exhibition, Selma Makela, Nollaig Molloy, Euan Gébler and Susan Hughes, who is also the curator, have a curiosity about the materials under their feet and in their hands.

Seduced by particular spaces, they navigate their way quietly, unsure if they are grounded beings in an alien environment, or if they themselves are the aliens. If you came upon any one of these artists at work you might see them prod something spongy with a fingertip, turn a rock with a foot or stop stock still to listen to the air. You would equally find them rapt in conversation with a human they may have encountered; this act of gathering stories is a form of research they each value highly.

In this show you will find minerals and environments metamorphosed, utilised, exploited and worshipped.
