Et Cetera at Hoxton Art Gallery
Hoxton Art Gallery
20th April – 24th May 2012
Artists: Laura Culham, Stephen Gill, Colin Glen, Beatrice Haines, Janne Malmros
Et Cetera explores the notion that meaning and significance can be found in that which is commonly deemed uninteresting or unworthy. The exhibition focuses on various overlooked elements in the increasingly repetitive urban environment: both human detritus and the less glamorous areas of nature – the grey-green moss that lurks between the cracks in the cobbles. In addition, the show acknowledges that through repetition in different contexts (particularly repetition in the form of painstakingly produced objects and artefacts) something new and thought-provoking may emerge.
The exhibition includes a recent series of work by acclaimed photographer Stephen Gill; drawings, small-scale sculptures and an artist’s book by Laura Culham; delicate drawings by Beatrice Haines; painstakingly crafted paper structures by Janne Malmros; and photorealist drawings by Colin Glen.
