Group exhibition AUX will be on at London’s Chalton Gallery opening October 13 and running to October 15.
The show features work by Victoria Adam, Richard Lockett, Isabel Mallet and Christian Tonner. The press release reveals little information about what to expect, including only a definition of the word auxiliary: “providing supplementary or additional help and support.” A word that could conjure up a multiplicity of meaning, from emergency to back-up, reserving or aiding. Perhaps the works will come together and act as support structures for one another.
Adam’s practice explores contemporary anxieties in the domestic space, Lockett abstract drawings, sculptures and paintings explores ‘rhythmic deconstruction’, Mallet’s practice spans across a variety of media using text, image, noise, objects and sculpture to bring to life what’s frozen and Tonner describes his work as “a flat reality of goods and the frozen bliss of an exhibiting moment.”
