Control Lapse, 17 October 2014 – 4 December 2014

Josh Lilley is delighted to open Control Lapse, a group show featuring; Analia Saban, Anissa Mack, Jesse Greenberg, Kathleen Ryan, Kelly Kleinschrodt, Niall Macdonald, Nicholas Hatfull, Patrick Jackson and Ruairiadh O’Connell.

The exhibition examines the practices of 9 artists from London, Glasgow, New York, and Los Angeles - who focus on the processes of casting within their work. Each individual brings a unique approach to the show - a spectrum of materials that combine clay, ceramic, rubber, soap, pewter, concrete, resin, plaster, and polyurethane; and incorporate a range of ideas and motives - from process, repetition, and the artefact, through to intimacy, cultural excess, coffee culture, and motherhood.

However the exhibition also seeks to explore ideas of letting go within artistic production; the necessary loosening of control wherein an artist has to step aside, if only momentarily, and discover the outcome of their work. Whether this be through the use of a kiln, a third party fabricator, or simply the mixing of materials in a tray or mould, Control Lapse celebrates the willing acceptance of the unknown into the otherwise pre-planned nature of artistic practice.
