Opening Friday 8 June
The conversations and physical exchanges between two artists see information, space, materials and ideas to be literally and metaphorically ‘Puckered’. Embracing a trust in what can evolve from spontaneity, both artists gather fragments of their own practices to collaboratively form new works that use the body and material to explore themes of collecting and constricting trace and touch. Through this an archive of gestures will emerge and at once question what it means to gather/contract/fold. Working with (and against) one another, Anna McDermott and Kaitlyn Hickey investigate the intimate and uncomfortable action that is to ‘Pucker’.
