'Beyond the Book' - artists who use books as their medium - Sat 05 Apr 2014 -Sun 08 Jun 2014
FREE, open daily 10am-5.30pm
The artists in this exhibition examine the book as physical form as well as a container of ideas and concepts. A household object - the conventional book has only recently been rivalled by the computer screen and electronic text. This exhibition sets out to explore this transition, through a variety of formats, from photographs to sculptures, installations and jewellery. The special qualities of the book object are deconstructed and described by these artists who all share an interest in history and memory, language and narrative.
Ellen Bell, Su Blackwell, Jonathan Boyd, Yvette Hawkins, Samantha Y Huang, Jeremy May, Ros Rixon and Alexander Korzer-Robinson
