• FORM

    FORM, curated by AD Schierning, is intended as a consideration of the perception of artifacts via the inherent qualities of materials and their affects. Following on from the 2014 exhibition at Franklin Arts Centre, CONSTANT PRACTICE, which focused on the importance of hands-on making practices for a diverse selection of contemporary visual artists; FORM takes objects – made from clay or paint – as subjects and looks at them in the context of intuitive production. While the artists included in the exhibition each has their own modus operandi, the works they have contributed intersect with and expand conversation regarding the pursuit of a studio-based practice, steeped in craft and materiality.
