This Is Where We Fall

Freya Gabie, Richard Hards, Theo Harper

23 February - 19 March 2017

An exhibition bringing together work by Freya Gabie, Richard Hards and Theo Harper exploring the intersection of violence and vulnerability manifest within materials.

Freya Gabie’s (b. 1984) practice is site responsive: her work seeks to disturb or rupture the intimate, unconscious exchange between people, objects and their environment. Through methods of displacement, partial erasure or a complete controlled re-framing of an environment or object a sense of isolation and impermanence is revealed. But the work also paradoxically highlights the connection at play between seemingly autonomous entities; the belief systems we cling to, the material world acting as proxy for our own mortality, the acute bond we share with our surrounding space and the others in it, often left unspoken and overlooked. Freya studied sculpture at Chelsea College of Art and The Royal College of Art, has exhibited broadly both across the UK and internationally and is currently artist in residence at USF, Bergen, Norway. freyagabie.com

Richard Hards (b.1985) is an artist working in London. He completed an MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art in 2014. His works are often characterised by their direct and often combative response to found site or subject. Recent works have taken the form of architectural interventions, film and sound. richardhards.com

Theo Harper (b. 1986) interrogates making processes. His work asks important questions of traditional and contemporary materials, processes and landscapes, seeking understanding of the varied environments we live within. It highlights the meeting of internal being with external place, and puts making at the centre of this encounter. Theo studied at Newcastle University and completed an MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art, London in 2014. He has shown his work nationally and internationally.
