FOLD is pleased to present a group show which is fuelled by curiosity and speculation; to bring six specific artists together to see and feel how each work reacts, challenges and elevates the next. Viewed collectively, the works reveal a spectrum in which a routine formalism increasingly succumbs to it’s own subjective abandonment.

The works included aim to overstep their abiding systematicity in ways that are – to varying degrees – unpredictable. This exhibition investigates the notion of event, asking what kind of event is produced when an artwork attempts to exceed the limitations implied by its specific materiality.

Each artist here uses ‘Model’ by producing works that question the conceptual and sensorial remit produced within their own making, to allow Reality to inflect and absorb into the work.
