Exhibition Dates: 22nd June – 10th September, 2016
Constituent Components is an exhibition of six sculptures and one wall work that play out the possibilities of an isometric cube in order to create new forms. Applied to the walls as a graphic vinyl pattern and arranged across the gallery floor as double-stacked, modular cubes, these newly commissioned works explore Jim Isermann’s career-long conflation of industrial design, craft production and art. Performing a fragile balance between these modes of operation, the exhibition proposes a dialogue between high and low, hand and machine, analogue and digital creation.
