Mutant Materialities: Process and experimentation presents the work of five West Midlands based artists who experiment with materials and ways of display.
The works are sculpture-based, textural and performative and explore different meanings of materiality and the relation of technology and objects. Drawing ideas from their practice, the artists will use the space to experiment and build connections between each other’s work, showcasing existing and new work.
Thinking about objects and their relevance to memories, meta-materials, the relation to our environment, and the creation of new artefacts. The exhibition will be a collective effort to invite visitors to observe and rethink structures, textures and their meaning to a post-human reality.
