Opening Sat 22 August 4-6pm
Meredith Turnbull and Anna Varendorff explore the potential and possibility of reflection through interior displays, objects and sculpture. Varendorff's objects share a floor/ceiling relation and focus on the notion of reflection through mirroring and diverging from a central axis. Turnbull's new mirror sculptures emphasis form and function through literal reflection and interior scale, freestanding and table-top displays. These sculptures function in the round, without frontal emphasis.
