from 20 June – 3 August 2014 (Preview: Thursday 19 June, 6.30 – 8.30pm)
Group exhibition Dependency explores the “lengthening chains of
interdependence” that, according to German sociologist Norbert Elias, bind the micro and
macro realms of social life.
Presenting works by Patricia L Boyd, Moyra Davey, Melanie Gilligan and
Marianne Wex, which all attempt to situate specific objects or actions
within broader sociopolitical frameworks, the show reflects upon how
material and ideological constructs, from the economy to patriarchy,
implicate even the most routine aspects of the day-to-day.
