ASCEND DESCEND
ALEX LEWIS

Opens Thursday, 17th April 2014
Ends Sunday, 27th April 2014

Ascend descend is a solo exhibition of architectural objects by Alex Lewis.

The staircase is the recurring motif that winds its way through each of the pieces. Stairs are a common architectural device but here they are turned on their head. These stairs do not deliver their intended function instead turning in on themselves and repeating in unusual and unexpected ways. It has to be seen to be believed.

The exhibition features all new sculptures fabricated using digital techniques: 3D printing, laser cutting, CNC routing and digital printing. These are some of the exciting technologies that are changing the face of society and contemporary art.




This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
