DESCRIPTION

From the city grid to the human form, we map our physical world in an attempt to quantify our identity as two-dimensional ‘fact’. This exhibition brings together two artists who question the authority of such documents by using them as found material. From a giant assemblage of New York City to the delicate lines of the human face, Martin McCormack and Elizabeth White illuminate what dwells beneath the map.
