Babel

January – March 2019

Babel explores the tower, in all its forms, as image and metaphor. It will feature the work of artists Jonathan Wright and Wayne Warren alongside found objects and imagery. From ancient sites to vernacular infrastructure, from the sacred to the profane, this exhibition explores an imaginary of elevation as site of communication, desire and control. 

Perhaps the most iconic images of this kind in recent times have been inseparable from a narrative of disaster and collapse.  The exhibition explores whether the desire to build bigger, higher, denser structures for us to live and work, invokes the kind of hubris the Bible cautions against in the tower of Babel. 

Warren and Wright invite us to rethink and see again functional architecture such as the water-tower and the pylon - the skeletal minimum of structural necessity as the pragmatic made beautiful.
