The Mobility of Facts

Giuseppe Gabellone, Siobhán Hapaska & Charlotte Posenenske


Exhibition Dates: 30th September – 17th December 2016
The Mobility of Facts brings together three highly idiosyncratic objects that challenge a conventional notion of sculpture as having fixed concrete form. Each work asserts an unstable presence through distinct approaches to material, construction and scale. One way or another, they all engage with time to activate the contingencies of encounter and affect the viewer physically and psychologically.
