> DESCRIPTION

Within the branch of mathematics known as set theory, the symbol 'Ø' represents what is called 'The Empty Set'. Simply put, a set is a group of objects and the Empty Set is a set that contains no objects.

{Empty Sets} is an exhibition of sculpture, installed sound, kinetic objects, prints and video. The exhibition includes previously unseen work by acclaimed video artist, George Barber, as well as a specially commissioned sculptural work by Graham Hudson. The exhibition brings together the work of established and emerging artists and will include work by Matthew Breen, Andrew Sunderland, Louie Rice, Jack Strange, Adam Watts and Sam Zealey.

The artists in {Empty Sets} make work that deals with the parameters surrounding emptiness. They create objects that lie between art and detritus, reality and fiction, meaning and nonsense. They explore the techniques of removal, erasure and inaction to create artworks which define the physical boundaries between pragmatic materialism and abstract logic.
