Liz Magor - The Rise and The Fall

14 July – 24 September 2023

Opening Night: Thursday 13 July, 18:00 – 20:00

Liz Magor’s 'The Rise and The Fall' presents a focused selection of works produced over the last five years that continue to explore our relationship with the material world. Working with ubiquitous, manufactured objects that often go unnoticed, she transforms them using inventive sculptural techniques that locate them on a spectrum between still life and the uncanny. Things such as blankets, containers, clothing and toys are found in relationships that generate a sense of care and meaning beyond their original use or function. Combining found or discarded objects and cast or amended ones, she unravels quotidian assumptions and desires.
