Dierdre Pearce has been re-exploring objects made using synthetic chemistry and was struck by the way that working with forms that the artist can neither touch nor see becomes a performative and imaginative experience. Pearce makes an object by performing a series of pre-defined actions and instead of direct observation, builds the object in her mind by interpreting the traces it leaves in space under pre-defined conditions. The work in the exhibition results from these reflections and is an interactive, immersive installation including drawings, objects and prints.
Please not that the opening event for the exhibition will be held at 6pm Thursday the 28th January.
