Loose Ends is a group exhibition which will bring together ten artists working across ceramics, textiles and performance.

The exhibition will present a range of sculptures, performances and surface works which explore connections and the interwoven poetics of material and the body. Within the gallery these works will inhabit the floor and walls.

Exhibiting artists: Abigail Brothers, Joshua Clague, Hoa Dung Clerget, Lily German, Elena Gileva, Laura Porter, Paloma Proudfoot, Alex Simpson, Holly Stevenson and Melania Toma.

Clay coils are rolled and pressed together. Hands slide past one another; materials slip off fingertips as loose ends collect and are scattered on the floor beneath. The act of making and touch are preserved in the ceramic form and present between each taut thread. Touch solidified within the material. There is inherent proximity to the body in textiles through the everyday encounters of fibre we experience. Woven fibres are held, stretched, pushed and scraped against one another with flexing fingers. Everyday materials are manipulated and transformed into sculpture.

A programme of events and performance will be presented at moments throughout the duration of the exhibition. These bursts of activity of outstretched bodies and voice will begin a conversation between the works in the gallery.
