    Private View Thursday 15th May 2014, 6-9pm
    16th May – 29th June 
    open Friday–Sunday 12-6pm
    In the age of self-design, where everyone is constantly producing an image of themselves for the reception of a global audience Hempton and Cuddon choose the body as subject through quiet aesthetic insubordination. As part of a unique collaboration for the two artists they will respond to one another and the space. Works will have physical dependency, although discrete and component parts can be read individually or synthesize as one.
    To coincide with the exhibition Katie Cuddon will launch her new publication ‘Without A Sentence, Without A Name’, alongside a performative event by the two artists.
