18th February – 4th March
Working with re-purposed malleable materials, Zoe Knight explores ideas that stem from Minimalism and Post-Minimalism. The artist investigates tactile relationships between material, process and installation – object, exhibition space and spectator – through the use of transformed found objects.
Zoe seeks to draw the viewer’s attention to an awareness of their body in the space and the features of the gallery itself. This is achieved through mapping the gallery floor with miniature-sized objects and lowering the ceiling height of the space. Objects are grouped in relation to one another with their formal and aesthetic features in mind, especially balance, texture and shape, while the ceiling alteration encourages viewers to enter the horizontal plane of the objects.
