Group exhibition at the Cob Gallery explores the manipulation and application of material
Fernando Cassasempre, Techtonic Series, 2015. Stoneware, porcelain and mixed media.

LONDON.- Material brings together works from 25 international emerging and established artists who are known for their unwavering experimentation in the application and manipulation of their chosen material. Presented as a meeting of painting, sculpture, installation, video work, photography and mixed media, this exhibition examines the dialogue between the natural and man-made. Material is a selling exhibition opening on Thursday 21 June.

Internationally recognised artists include the sculptor Fernando Cassasempre, textile artist Caroline Achaintre, performance artist Alice Anderson and sculptor Meekyoung Shin. Presented together with works by critically acclaimed and award winning emerging talent such as Lindsey Mendick, Sam Austen, Xavier Robles De Medina and Irvin Pascal, the international artists in the exhibition includes representation from 11 territories.

The exhibition combines artists with a fascination of the material matter. Curator Cassie Beadle states, “We have invited artists who show rigorous material investigation, be it by crude manipulation, tactile juxtaposition, or a self-referential approach to their chosen medium. A couple have created unique materials whilst others use materials which have an autobiographical or social-political reference.”

Material is the second in the three-part series, New Work Part I, II, II: Form, Material, Subject, bringing together groups of artists with distinct approaches to these three fields of enquiry. In January 2018, Form examined the dialogue between formal geometric structures and organic compositions. Later this year, Subject will be a provocative exploration of how the female subject matter is being approached by female artists.
