In the show “Geometric Figuring” the Artist Ben Washington presents an installation of interconnecting sculpture and collage at the centre of which is a homemade arcade box that allows the viewer to navigate a virtual rendition of the the installation in which they are standing.
The exhibition examines the back and forth nature of Washington’s process, where objects and images constantly switch between different types of space, virtual, imaginary, real, two dimensional and three dimensional, with each of these states at some point playing a role in the creation of the overall exhibition.
Gallery Director, Rosamond Murdoch, says “this is t he first new show announced for 2013 and promises to be an exciting reimagining of the Nunnery Gallery space. I have worked closely with Ben Washington to curate this original and personal show which responds to the site in a fascinating visual ensemble.”
The exhibition at the Nunnery Gallery will be accom panied by an artist talk and essay.
