The physical formation, rhythms and attitudes of the Dockland’s have influenced Jeremy’s expressive responses to the environmental, material and temporal conditions of the surrounding space. Nellie makes sculptural ‘experiments’ encompassing latent energy in playful modes of display. The clever structures gesture towards their occurring tensions and energies in conversation with the space and the viewer.
Mesopotamia will advance a sculptural conversation between the two artists, in a place and space out of time.
