Coup de Grace
A ‘coup de grâce' refers to a violent act with merciful intent. A deathblow intended to end suffering. The five artists in the exhibition explore the opposing roles of aggressor and victim, and through an unconventional use of sculpture, photography and painting, attempts are made to provoke, transform and repair with varying degrees of success. Natural order is reversed with this inaugural exhibition challenging an action inherently reserved as the final act.
