Collider is a group exhibition of eleven artists whose works stand in material opposition to the modernist underpinnings of the exhibition space. Bringing together ideas and images in proximity with each other Collider is intended to develop new dialogues between the artists in the exhibition and the space it occupies.
Modernist furniture and interior pieces depict a world where labor is hidden, the works in this exhibition celebrate the hand of the artist in productive friction with their surroundings. Modern industrial materials permeate contemporary artistic practice at virtually every level.
Works in this exhibition subvert and experiment with a range of these materials to find unique and playful results straddling a line between critique of the modern and homage to its form.
