what the point is : the end of the line is an essay in sculptural form, composed of drawing, video and assembled objects. This new body of artwork develops a chain of analogies between the tip of the pen/cil, the first person singular, the line of sight and the I-beam cursor. It asks: how is the object answered by its representation, and how is the subject consoled by it?
The exhibition is accompanied by a programme of events drawing upon the artist’s parallel writing practice.
Friday 25 September 6-9pm
Opening Event: A screening of short video works with readings of recent texts by the artist, compiled to examine gesture and pictorial figuration in drawing and writing.

Friday 30 October 2-9pm
