Geographies of Contamination
A new exhibition of recent works by ten contemporary artists tracing a growing interest in the pollution and breakdown of systems and processes. Slippages and spillages, disruption and contamination characterise sculptural, film and installation works.
A closed-loop fountain, corrupted translations of everyday items, mutant organisms with industrial, technological and organic components, loyalty cards and hard drives, and abstract spatial environments are among the unsettling objects in the exhibition. Many works are newly made or have not previously been shown in the UK.
