Further details

Gallery 1: Creaturely : Penny Darling

'Creaturely' is an installation of my recent sculptures and photographs. A creature is something that has been created, a creature of the imagination, not a human, but sub human.

My photographs examine how "Creaturely" the human body might be. My sculptures are animated, and they are a little repulsive, a little animalistic and very intriguing. They are my creatures, my little monsters, part animal and part human.

Gallery 2: Subconscious Being : Zamara Robison

'Subconscious Being' deals with phycological terrain and explores the human psyche though a series of sculptural works.

The artist experiments with textural qualities, charged space and bodily form.

Gallery 3:Observation and Normality : BadraAji

This series of photographs investigates the relationship between the observer and the observed.

The viewer is asked to look at the things they do and how they are normally performed. Normality can be found within these obscure portraits. Although, observation can also uncover a sense of discomfort and hint that something is not quite right.
