Jamie Anley’s paperclip chandelier light installation is inspired by the redundant paraphernalia of the ‘paperless office’ and made out of thousands of humble steel paperclips.
James Ireland’s art/landscape sculptures and site-specific installation combine minimalist sculptural aesthetics using industrial materials (metal, glass, vinyl) combined with natural elements such as tree branches.
James Hopkins makes a contemporary take on surrealism, reminiscent of Max Ernst’s “Les cages sont toujours imaginaires”, with his clever sculptural interventions presenting simple phrases that have an impossible reflection when viewed in the mirror.
Self-Portrait, by artist collective rAndom International is both performance and image combining a temporary portrait with new digital media in the form of an ‘Etch-a-Sketch’ screen creating a duotone time-based image of the viewer that hauntingly disappears within a few minutes.
