BRAVE NEW WORLDS | 7.9.11 7pm

It is the year of the Great Exhibition and scientific discoveries are throwing new light on the far flung territories of the British Empire. As two sisters come to terms with the disappearance of their explorer father on his latest expedition, they discover the brave new worlds lying just beyond their reach.

Part performance, part installation, Brave New World 1, the first in a series of design-led projects, is an evocative search for Utopia.

Designed by: Valentina Ceschi, Guoda Jarusceviciute and Kate Lane

4th October – 1st November 2014

For the exhibition AXON artist Robert Bell created an immersive environment of paintings, projections and constructed installations. Extending the abstract marks and highly worked surfaces of his wall-based paintings, Bell’s animated revolving forms, pulsating fields and mutating membranes throb and reflect against the oily surfaces of the gallery walls. Mysterious in origin and ambiguous in scale, these virtual and material creations remind us of the micro or macro realm, the biological, the chemical or chemically induced.
