How to Make a Head

23 May - 8 June, Gallery 1


Free Entry. Pre-booking is not required.

Located on the Ground Floor in Gallery 1

The title of this exhibition is taken from Luke Hannam’s drawing How to Make a Head, 2024 , a head seemingly constructed from rectangular blocks. Not intended as a portrait of an existing person in the traditional sense, the work assembles life from scratch to create a humanoid form.

In this spirit of alchemy, all the artists in the exhibition have been handed the force of Prometheus, to blow life-giving fire into inanimate materials. The figures, bodies and body-parts seem to be in the process of coming alive through the imaginative use of materials and collage. Although they are made-up characters, the inhabitants of this exhibition feel strangely present.
